Summer Camp

  • Evanston summer camp programs are anticipated to open in a significantly reduced capacity on Monday, July 6, in accordance with Illinois Department of Public Health guidelines. The Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department is evaluating how to best operate camp programs within these health and safety guidelines and will continue to provide updates as they become available. 

    All City of Evanston summer camps scheduled to start in the month of June are canceled. Parks and Recreation staff will begin working to contact registrants to facilitate refunds or recreation household credits for all June camps beginning Tuesday, 5/26. 

    • If you are currently only enrolled in camp taking place in June, you will automatically be refunded in the method of payment.

    • Household credits due to June camp cancellations will automatically be applied to outstanding household balances for July and August camps.

    • If you no longer plan on attending camp this summer, please contact the recreation center hosting your camp to initiate a refund or recreation household credit. 



We have canceled the Spring 2020 Session of programming running from March 13 through May 31st. This is due to Governor Pritzker’s executive order, which has extended the stay at home order through May 31st.
