2020 Summer Camp

Summer camp can be one of the most rewarding, unforgettable experiences in a child's life. Camp provides children with a community of caring mentors and experiential education that promotes the building of both friendships and character while working together to overcome challenges. 2020 has thrown some challenges our way, but the Round Lake Area Park District is committed to providing a safe modified camp program that includes outdoor play, friends, and time away from the screen.

Location: Robert W. Rolek Community Center: 814 Hart Road, RL
Camp Day: 9:00am - 3:00pm
Ages: K - 12 years

Once you've finished the payment portion of your registration, you will receive an email with a link to ePACT. That link will take you to the medical history and emergency information portion of the registration process. Click HERE for more information about ePACT.

Your registration is complete when you follow the email link and click "Submit" on the ePACT website (this must be done no later than 5 days prior to the start of camp or your spot will be forfeited)!

Preparing for Camp

Campers should come dressed in comfortable clothes and shoes that can get dirty. Gym shoes are highly recommended. Campers should wear a face covering and bring a reusable water bottle, a healthy lunch, a healthy snack, and sunscreen to camp each day.
