How to register for Summer Camp

To secure your child’s spot in our summer camp, you may pay either a $50 deposit or the full amount per session per child at the time of registration. The $50 deposit is applied towards your camp fee and is non-refundable.

Payment must be made two weeks prior to the start date of the session or your child may not attend. The Village of Lake Zurich Park and Recreation Department will accept partial payments up until that time. A $25 late fee per child will be charged for payment not received by the final balance due dates. Summer camp registration forms must be completed online for each child registered.  If you have multiple children in the program, you need to fill out the information separately for each individual child.

Camp Staff Ratios

The Village of Lake Zurich camp staff is made up of approximately 36 caring individuals who are dedicated to making each camper’s experience positive, memorable, and fun. Camp counselors are hired based on their ability to be proper role models and who possess positive leadership skills. Our counselors are enthusiastic and responsible individuals with great communication skills who care about children and the importance of summer camp. The ability to have excellent safety coverage throughout the day as well as providing every opportunity for the counselors to get to know their campers on a personal level is of utmost importance. Throughout the day the ratios for our camps consist of 1:6 for Kamp Kiddie 1:8 for Camp Alpine, and 1:10 for Teen Camp, are maintained as campers participate in activities and programmed events.
