2020 Camp Iwannahavefun!
With the recent extension of the Illinois Stay at Home Order to May 31st, the Darien Park District has made the difficult decision to cancel the following programs for this Summer: Two’s Day at Camp, Amazing Sunshine Camp, Camp Iwannahavefun, Super Stars Camp, and Fun-4-All Day Camp.
Many factors contributed to this decision – including the large number of campers in this program, as well as all of the uncertainties regarding program restrictions and re-opening dates. Our staff is incredibly disappointed that we will be unable to offer day camp.
We hope to be able to offer some of our smaller programs this summer, so please continue to watch our website for more information.
Age: 3-5 year olds (entering Preschool - Kindergarten) Children may not register for this camp if they will be 6 years or older at start of camp.
Location: Darien Park District Community Center, 7301 Fairview Ave.
We offer a camp designed exclusively for children ages 3-5! Theme weeks, special events, outdoor activities, field trips, and games are some of the highlights of the camp. Campers staying all day must bring a lunch. Morning and afternoon snacks will be provided. Children must be potty trained and out of diapers/pull-ups.
Camp is available on a day-by-day basis. Parents may register their children only for the days you need childcare. The only stipulation is that you must register a minimum of 48 hours in advance. Limited spots available, so register early!
Extended care is only available for children enrolled in camp. Children must be pre-registered and fees must be paid in advance.
Every camper will receive a camp T-shirt. Camp T-shirts must be worn everyday. Additional T-shirts are available for $7 each.
Field trips will be every Wednesday.

SEASPAR (the South East Association for Special Parks and Recreation) provides inclusion services for individuals who wish to participate in general recreation programs. An individual with a disability can have a beneficial and rewarding experience by participating with their peers without a disability. SEASPAR can provide support to an inclusive experience by adapting activities, working with behavioral modifications and providing support staff. Each individual needs to be aware of a few simple guidelines prior to an inclusive experience. When registering, make sure to indicate on the registration form that you need accommodations. Be aware of and able to follow the rules of conduct for the program, with or without accommodations. Be willing to participate in the scheduled activities. SEASPAR works cooperatively with you and the Park District to provide reasonable accommodations.
