Summer Day Camps


Fort Frankfort Adventures
Summer Day Camp

In cooperation with the State of Illinois’ Restore Illinois Plan, the Frankfort Park District has made the appropriate changes to operations in accordance to Phase 3 Recovery. We are monitoring the progress as we move through these phases and we are prepared to adjust our operations plan as we get closer to Phase 4-Recovery.

Ready to get out of the house, soak up the summer sun and have some fun? Join the Frankfort Park District’s NEW Summer Day Camp! We have modified our camp this summer to ensure we are following the most up-to-date and well informed practices for our campers such as smaller group sizes and enhanced cleaning practices, all while keeping everyone on track to meeting new friends, making memories and experiencing new things! Programs will include in-house entertainment, nature walks, arts and crafts, outdoor play and activities! There will not be a before and after camp option, field trips or swim days. Campers will need to bring their own face mask, hand sanitizer, lunch and water bottle each day. Campers will also be required to bring their own supplies. A supply list will be provided prior to the start of camp. Let us help you put some fun & sun back into a NEW kind of summer together!

Registration can be done ONLINE or  IN PERSON at the Founders Community Center, 140 Oak Street.  A copy of your child’s birth certificate must be turned in prior to your child starting camp.

Zoom Meeting/Virtual Open House

A mandatory Virtual Open House will be held prior to your child starting camp. This will be scheduled prior to the start date of the session your child is registered for. This is a great opportunity to learn about the camp, ask questions, and check out the facility. We encourage the parents and campers to attend. The date and time of the meeting will be given to you at the time of registration. A link to the Zoom meeting will be sent to the email address on file three days prior to the meeting date.
