Summer is just around the corner, and registration for Chicago Park District’s summer day camps and programs is available at your local park, or online at

Each summer, the Chicago Park District provides more than 30,000 campers ages 6-12 with a season of supervised activity at more than 230 local parks. Children will go on field trips; explore nature, arts and culture; engage in sports and recreation; and enjoy water time.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s Summer of Learning initiative will continue to impact youth as each camp will include 20 minutes of dedicated reading time. Summer of Learning represents a dedicated approach for youth in every neighborhood to access high-quality programs that will help them continue to learn even when school is out.

In addition to summer day camps, the Park District offers thousands of sport and fitness, cultural and environmental programs for adults, seniors, teens and youth. Regular summer programs run the week of June 16 through the week of August 18. For more information, contact your local park, visit or call 312-742-PLAY.
