2021 Summer Camp

Location: Robert W. Rolek Community Center: 814 Hart Road, RL
Camp Day: 9 am - 3 pm (regular camp) or 7 am - 5 pm (extended camp)
Ages: 5 -11

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.

Children who attend summer camp will enjoy open swim Mondays and Thursdays. Families have an option to sign up for swim lessons on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, 9 to 9:45 am at an additional fee.

We are planning special in-house activities on Wednesdays, Camper's Choice on Tuesdays, and special events on Fridays.

Our programs are supervised by qualified staff who are certified in first aid and CPR. All staff receives extensive training in providing an appropriate day camp experience for your child. The Round Lake Area Park District's 2021 Summer Camp Program strives to provide a safe and fun environment for all children. Our programs are under the supervision of PDRMA (Park District Risk Management Agency) which focuses on the safety of our participants, staff, and camp activities. PDRMA standards ensure that camp staff participates in First Aid & CPR training, as well as training in all aspects of camp curricula and behavior management.

A $50 nonrefundable registration fee is due at the time of enrollment.

Emergency Forms Automation for Recreation (ePACT) will email you to fill out your child's health history and emergency forms. You need to complete the online packet and share it with the Round Lake Area Park District. You will need 2 emergency contacts and a photo of your child to upload. If you have completed ePACT for us or another organization, you will be asked to update your account and share it with us.
