The DeKalb Park District is excited to offer summer camp with modifications this 2020 season. Although, Camp Discover will be back in Summer 2021, camp will look a little different this year. Staff is excited to offer a safe and memorable camp experience to all our young campers with our new Summer Horizons Camp!
Small groups of ten campers and two camp counselors will enjoy each week of camp through games, activities, and theme days in a structured environment. Both staff and campers, as well as the facility and frequently touched surfaces, will undergo a rigorous disinfection routine. All individuals are required to wear face masks while indoors and outdoors when 6 feet or less of physical distancing cannot be maintained.
Summer Camp includes:
Children entering School District K-6th grade (2020 - 2021 school year)
Sports and Recreation Center, located at 1465 South 4th Street
Summer Horizons Camp will be housed at the Sports and Recreation Center. The facility will be divided into four spaces, allowing for ten campers and two camp counselors per space, for a total of 12 individuals per space. IDPH guidelines allow for 10 participants per space. Each of the groups will not interact, with the bulk of social distancing camp activities being performed outdoors in the adjacent Kiwanis Park.
