What's New at Discovery Day Camp

The Park District has another incredible season planned for kids coming to Discovery Camp this year! We pride ourselves on being one of the area's best summer camps by providing a unique combination of excellent staff, fun sports, trips to the pool, exciting projects and beautiful air-conditioned facilities.

Based on the positive response from campers last year, we are continuing to focus on returning to nature. Look forward to new field trip locations that will take us on exciting outdoor adventures! Under the supervision of staff, our child-led play initiative allows campers to think for themselves, develop their mental and physical abilities, and increase their confidence level.

Discovery Day Camp is the 2012 Outstanding Program winner awarded through the Illinois Parks and Recreation Association!
