Kiddie Camp campers do not go on any beach or field trip days. Kiddie Camp participants do not go on any beach or field trip days.

Recreation: Tween & Teen Camps

Middle School Madness

Grades: 5 – 6
Dates: Session I (June 12 – July 6); Session II (July 9 – August 3)
Location: Winnetka Park District Community Room (540 Hibbard Road)
No camp: July 4

Middle School Madness combines the best aspects of summer into one enjoyably fun package! Not only will kids love spending time at Tower Road Beach twice a week, but they will also enjoy two excursions per week. Excursions will vary, but generally include a trip to a water park (Barefoot Bay, Rainbow Falls, etc.) and an additional venue (Medieval Times, Main Event, Action Territory, etc.). The fifth day will be spent participating in a wide-range of activities at the Park District’s facilities, including turf sports and games, archery, laser tag, bubble soccer, tennis, crafts, and more. Staff will guide, encourage and help lead campers in a gratifying summer filled with laughs, entertainment, and energy. Check out last year’s parent newsletters to see what campers experience each week.

Camp requirements: Campers must bring a sack lunch and water every day. There is access to a refrigerator and microwave for use on non-beach and prior to departure on field trip days. Parents will be notified beforehand of any excursions that provide lunch.

Although both four week sessions offer comparable experiences, we encourage all campers to sign up for the full eight weeks because each session provides a diverse set of programs at alternate destinations. This is an exciting camp for parents who want their children to stay busy with a variety of activities.

Get your child outdoors this summer with our active and fun Adventure Camp!

Activities may include kayaking, paddleboarding, archery, trips to indoor venues (arcades, trampolines, mini golf, laser tag, etc.), trips to the zoo, and afternoons at the Park District’s golf course or tennis center. In an age filled with digital screens, we make every effort to keep kids outdoors, while being active and developing team building skills with peers.  Check out last year’s parent newsletters to see what campers experience each week.

Counselors in Training

Grades: 8 – 9
Dates: Session I (June 18 to July 6); Session II (July 10 to July 27)
Location: Varies by Camp
No camp: July 4

The Winnetka Park District counselors in training program makes a great summer activity for teens – especially those that have wonderful memories of being campers themselves! While many of the teens looking to be counselors in training have knowledge and experience working with children, being a counselor provides a new skill set beyond babysitting. Being a counselor in training will teach teens to work together with their peers to entertain and care for young campers. They will gain valuable work experience necessary for the future, including managerial skills, leadership skills, responsibility, and enhanced communication skills. Not only that, counselors in training get to have fun as they play alongside the young campers! Counselors in training may only register for one session, however, they may register for a junior counselor session to begin after they have successfully completed the counselors in training program.

Mandatory orientation: A mandatory orientation will occur on June 12 for session I and July 9 for session II from 10am-3pm at the Elder Lane Beach House (299 Sheridan Road). The orientation will cover counselor responsibilities and expectations, safety policies and procedures, how to handle various situations that could occur, camp activities and games, and more.

If any counselors in training or junior counselors are interested in participating July 30 to August 10 for extended camp, contact Toby Ross at tross@nullwinpark.org.
