K.E.E.P. Camp

Perfect for working parents, our K.E.E.P. Summer Camp has been a favorite resource in the Barrington area for many years. You can start with our basic day camp, then add extended hours either before and/or after camp. We offer a 3-day and a 5-day option. Please see below for more information.

Your child will have a safe, caring, fun-filled summer of arts, crafts, hands-on experiences, playground play, afternoon swim time, fields trips and “Wacky Wednesdays.” Each week will have a theme. We will be swimming (weather permitting) on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. There will be a field trip scheduled every Friday. This is an indoor based camp but children will be going outside often, weather permitting. Parents must provide a morning snack and lunch. The Park District will provide a light afternoon snack.

Your child will experience a summer of fun filled activities and create memories for a lifetime. We’ll enjoy a balanced blend of arts and crafts, science, sports and games. Monday through Thursday, campers challenge their imagination and skills at our “Activity Stations” from 9:00am-12:00pm, followed by an afternoon of pool time on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Each Wednesday children will enjoy “Wacky Wednesday” activities in the afternoon and each Friday we will go on a field trip.
