  • Dress Code

    Campers should dress for the weather and must wear gym shoes and socks. Please do not send your child in open-toed shoes as they may not be allowed to participate in physical activities. If sending additional clothing for your camper, please send in a tote bag with your child’s name on it. The park district is not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged items.

  • Lunches, Water & Snacks

    Campers must bring adequate food, snacks and water for the duration of the time they are at the program. The park district does not provide lunch to campers. Because of the nature of the program, it is also advisable that your child bring a water bottle daily. The park district will provide adequate drinking water for participants to refill their water bottles. Any other beverages must be provided by parents. Glass bottles are not permitted.

  • Camp Goals

    The camps, organized by the Plainfield Park District, are set upon a recreational basis. Our main goal is for each child to have a fun, safe and exciting summer. We hire counselors who we believe will help us achieve this goal. They are called upon to be a mentor, educator, and friend. All counselors are asked to give of themselves to the utmost, thus helping the campers to learn new skills, make new friends, and have a safe, enjoyable time at camp. We hope you enjoy what our summer has to offer! We are continually striving to make camp a great experience for all participants.

  • Severe Weather Plan

    Severe weather consists of extreme high winds, dark sky, increased rain fall, and/or tornado warning or watch. If severe weather approaches, camp will be moved indoors.

  • LCSRA Inclusion Aid & Support

    Lily Cache Special Recreation Association (LCSRA) provides inclusion services for individuals who wish to participate in general recreation programs. An individual with a disability can have a beneficial and rewarding experience by participating with their peers without a disability. LCSRA can provide support to an inclusive experience by training staff, adapting activities, working with behavioral modifications and providing support staff. Each individual needs to be aware of a few simple guidelines prior to an inclusive experience. When registering, make sure to indicate on the registration form that you need accommodations. Be aware of and able to follow the rules of conduct for the program, with or without accommodations. Be willing to participate in the scheduled activities. LCSRA works cooperatively with you and the Park District to provide reasonable accommodations.
