In 2020, Barrington Park District successfully reinvented our summer camps due to COVID-19. For 2021, we will build on our success and offer even MORE for our camp community! While practicing social distancing and taking necessary precautions, we are planning a summer of new friendships, artistic adventures, games, nature exploration, S.T.E.A.M. and awesome memories your child will treasure and remember for years to come.

District staff are hard at work to create a camp experience that blends COVID-19 safety procedures with all the great experiences that makes summer camp memorable. Per the Illinois Department of Public Health’s guidelines, camps will be offered in small “static camp pods” of up to 30 campers at many locations throughout the Barrington Park District. All Federal, State and Local guidelines regarding face coverings and social distancing will be enforced.

Restore Illinois guidance is regularly updated as public health conditions and new information becomes available. Requirements and changes will be communicated as necessary.

Each camp pod will be led by at least 2 qualified staff. Staff at each camp are mature and enthusiastic about keeping your child safe and having fun. All camp staff complete a training program that includes supervision and safety techniques, COVID-19 precautions, activity development and CPR and first aid. The following camps are in-house (not using an outside contracted company) offered by the Barrington Park District for the summer of 2021. Adventure, Discovery, Explorers, K.E.E.P. 2.0, Little Broncettes, The Zone & Triple Threat Theater Camp.  

Registration will close one week prior to the start day of each camp session at 9:00pm. Please make sure you register early. Sorry, no exceptions due to the preparation required to be in compliance with the Restore Illinois “Day Camp” COVID-19 guidelines.

To ensure everyone that wants to participate can play, learn and have fun, we partner with NISRA to offer inclusion services. Contact the supervisor of the specific camp for details (see below). Please be sure to include information regarding any special needs. Inclusion Aid requests are needed at least three weeks prior to the start of session.
