2015 Summer Camp Start Date Delayed Due to School Snow Days

The starting date of many City of Evanston summer camps will be delayed due to the extended school year caused by school cancellations for emergency snow days. Camps that were scheduled to begin on June 8 will begin on Wednesday, June 10, 2015.  Fees for these camps have been reduced to reflect fewer days of participation. The Recreation Division has planned drop-in programs for June 8 and 9; please see the flyer for more information. Pre-Camp Activity Days
