If you have campers at both locations, drop your children off at Pleasant Lane School; 401 N. Main Street, and a bus will pick up your Senior Camper and transport him/her to the Community Building at 9:00 AM.
Day Camp Schedules
A schedule of themes and field trips are available online or at Sunset Knoll prior to the start of camp. Additional information regarding schedules will be provided when needed.
Day Camp Options
Day Camp offers the option of 3-day, 5-day, 10-day, or full summer sessions. All Day Camp sessions include the field trip on Fridays. If the 3-day option is chosen, the days are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday only.
Junior and Senior Camp has scheduled field trips every Friday and all campers attending camp on a Friday, must go on the field trip. Field trip permission slips will be given at the time of registration with the Parent Manual and must be filled out prior tot he first day of camp. Campers must wear their provided camp t-shirt on field trip days.
Junior Day Camp will be held at Paradise Bay Water Park every Wednesday during the summer. Additional pool days may be offered during some sessions. If weather is inclement on a pool day, camp will be held at the Lombard Community Building. If your camper has swimming limitations, staff strongly encourages swim lessons, which are offered for campers only, every Wednesday morning.
Swim lessons are available for day camp or teen camp participants for $3 per lesson or eight lessons for $16. Swim lessons will be held on Wednesdays from 8:30-9:10 AM at Paradise Bay Water Park, which is where Day Camp is held on Wednesdays. Once campers are done with swim lessons, counselors will pick them up from inside the water park and bring them to their group.
