Park District camps will keep kids having fun all summer! They'll discover new friendships, enjoy arts and crafts, play group games and participate in individual and team sports. Each week has a different theme with related activities.
New camp details coming soon

Camp Seager (Grades 1-4)
Two Locations (Seager Park and Nike Sports Complex)

Our day camp experience this summer has taken on a new look. Campers will discover new friendships, create arts and crafts projects and participate in small group activities, all while maintaining social distancing and practicing good hygiene. Each week has a different theme with related activities. Campers will experience on-site entertainment once a week, water play two times per week and special guest visitors whenever possible. Due to the social distancing guidelines that have been put in place, there will be no field trips or Centennial Beach visits this summer. The camper to counselor ratio has been lowered to 8:1 and groups will have limited crossover throughout the day to lessen the amount of contact. Campers need to bring their lunch each day, including Fridays. Early pick-up is available at 3:00 p.m. daily. Registration for each session will close on the Wednesday before the start of camp.

Over the next few weeks, the Naperville Park District will be monitoring State of Illinois guidelines and any restrictions pertaining to summer day camps. Once we receive additional information from the Illinois Department of Public Health, we will finalize our camp modifications, including drop off and pickup procedures, the implementation of social distancing practices, and hygiene and cleanliness protocols.

Funds raised through the Naperville Parks Foundation support the Naperville Park District’s Fee Assistance Program. The Naperville Parks Foundation supports the recreation needs and desires of the residents of Naperville – encouraging health and wellness, fitness, family time, and fun. The Foundation supports the mission of making recreation of all kinds accessible to everyone across the community, regardless of socioeconomic circumstances.

On Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2011 Naperville Park District officials heard the good news for which they have been waiting for many months: the District has achieved national accreditation through the National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA).

The decision was announced at the NRPA national conference in Atlanta following a formal hearing before the Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies (CAPRA).

Naperville is only the second park district in Illinois to earn this distinction and the 104th nationally accredited agency in the nation; there are more than 10,000 recreation agencies in the United States. The Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies accredits a handful of park agencies each year that have completed a multi-step process involving a self-review by the agency, a site visit, and an evaluation and formal report by the Commission.

“We are extremely proud to bring this honor to Naperville,” said Park District Executive Director Ray McGury. “It’s an affirmation of our high standards and also an encouragement to continue bringing high quality recreation and parks experiences to our community.”

The Park District’s accreditation process began approximately one year ago and included an extensive self-evaluation by staff and a 5-day visit from CAPRA reviewers this past July. Maintaining the accreditation requires annual reports and 5- and 10-year reviews.

Park District staff members noted that the CAPRA process has helped them see the big picture, focus on long term goals and plans, review plans more regularly, organize documents so that they are accessible and useable, and collaborate more effectively with other departments and outside organizations.
