Registration Information

Payment

Full payment: Summer camp may be paid in full with cash, check, or credit card. Payment is accepted in-person, online or by mail, fax or email.

Partial payment (Winnetka residents only): With the partial payment plan option, $100 will be due at the time of registration with the remaining balance due on May 31. If paying via check, two checks are required at the time of registration: one for $100 and one for the remaining balance dated May 31. Partial payment must be indicated on the registration form, is only available to Winnetka residents, and is not available with online registration. For additional payment plan options or scholarship opportunities, contact the Winnetka Park District administrative office at (847) 501-2040.

Flexible Scheduling

Select weeks: With our select weeks scheduling option, you may register your child for select weeks that work with your summer schedule. This option is available for all camps, excluding Counselors in Training and Junior Counselors. Select weeks registration is only accepted in-person at the Winnetka Park District administrative office.

Early drop-off: This option is available as a supplement to Kiddie Camp, Happiness Is and Almost Anything Goes camps for an additional fee. This is NOT a drop-in program and requires pre-registration. Registration for early drop-off is accepted in-person, online or by mail, fax or email. Additional details regarding specific drop-off procedures will be provided prior to the start of camp with your parent manual. If you are interested in earlier drop-off than what is listed with each camp, contact Toby Ross at tross@nullwinpark.org or (847) 501-5071.

After camp: This option is available as a supplement to Happiness Is, Almost Anything Goes, and Middle School Madness camps, and is the perfect opportunity to extend your child’s enjoyable camp experience. Parents may pick-up their child at any time during after camp (3-6pm). Campers will be transported by Winnetka Park District staff from day camp to after camp (if location is different). This is NOT a drop-in program and requires pre-registration. Registration for after camp is accepted in-person, online or by mail, fax or email. Please note that there must be a minimum of four campers enrolled or the program will be cancelled.

Discounts

Early registration: Discounts for early registration are applicable until April 4. After April 4, regular rates will apply.

Multiple children: A 10 percent discount will be given to Winnetka residents that enroll two or more children from the same household in the full programs of Kiddie Camp, Happiness Is, Almost Anything Goes, Middle School Madness (sessions I & II), or Adventure Camp (sessions I & II). This discount is only valid through May 1. It may be combined with the early registration discount, but is not valid with the select weeks scheduling option.
