Register for Summer Camps - TODAY!

Wednesday, March 11, 2015

Make this summer full of adventure for you child by signing up for our Summer Camps! We offer Tot Camp for ages 24-35 months, Sunshine Camp for ages 3-5 ½ year olds, Discovery Day Camp for ages 4-11 years old and Teen Camp for ages 12-14 years old.

  • Our Tot Camp is designed to let little ones do what they do best—play! Our smallest campers get messy with sensory art and craft projects, play games, enjoy sports and gym time, sing songs, dance, read stories and have snack inside the cool Community Center.
  • At Sunshine Camp, campers enjoy plenty of free play, nature walks, vegetable gardening in our raised garden beds, art and crafts, outdoor play stations, water play, guest speakers, sports, camp songs and making new friends. Sunshine Camp provides everyone a chance to grow and be more independent! Each week is centered on a fun theme. All activities are designed to encourage children to use their imaginations and be creative.
  • The award winning Discovery Day Camp engages your child in meeting new people, exercising their imagination and experiencing new activities/ trips. Theme days, field trips, onsite demonstrations and special event days send your child home with a lot to talk about. We pride ourselves as the area’s best summer camp because of our unique combination of qualified staff, fun activities, amazing trips and air conditioned facilities. Discover our innovative curriculum, which uses child-led play to encourage creativity and challenge your child. Our campers develop their mental and physical abilities to think and make decisions for themselves. We believe children form their own values that shape their relationships with others and increase self-confidence. Experiences at this camp are one step in that process.
  • Teen Camp is designed for older campers wanting more adventures. With six field trips per session, your camper travels around the Chicagoland area! Campers not only learn responsibility but take part in team building activities to get to know each other better.

Discounted Individual Pool Passes On Sale Now till May 9!

Saturday, February 28, 2015

Enjoy your summer close to home by making a splash at the Pool on Pacific! The most economical way to visit the pool is to purchase a season pass. If you purchase your season pass by Saturday, May 9, it’s a $10/pass savings. As in the past the Park District will require all residents to come into the Community Center, 9560 Franklin Avenue, to get their Resident Pass or renew the pass before purchasing their pool pass. You will need a Resident Pass to prove residency when purchasing pool passes or if you want the residency price when paying daily admissions. This is to ensure that all residents are paying the correct discounted rate for the use of the Pool on Pacific and other park district programs. We will continue to make it convenient for patrons to purchase their pool passes at the pool. Once the pool is open and as long as your Resident Pass is still valid, on your next visit to the pool take the time to purchase a pool pass and not worry about paying daily admissions all summer. Before the pool opens, you may register for myour pool pass at the Community Center office with your Resident Pass. Or you can mail your registration, once you have received your Resident Pass. Season passes are non-refundable. A pool pass is equivalent to three visits paying daily admission. For a child, it’s the same as visiting five times. The pool is open for 108 days, and for $29 you can enjoy it every day. Buy your pool pass today and enjoy the savings. With 108 days in the season and a reduced rate offered again this year, you cannot beat a fun-filled summer of staying close to home and enjoying your pool.
