Camp Preview Day!
February 4, 2017
Remember when summer camp meant and you played outside all day, did crafts, learned a skill, made new friends, played games and sung songs? Make those memories for your kids this summer at Lake Forest Parks & Recreation Summer Camps!
Lake Forest Parks & Recreation offers a wide variety of summer camp experiences right here in our community with a flexible schedule, affordable pricing, and a reputation that is second to none.

From traditional, super fun day camps, to sports, nature, dance, art, and technology, there is a camp for every child. Many camps are offered from 1 week to 8 weeks, so you can customize your summer camp schedule to fit your family’s summer plans.
