ePACT

For Summer 2024, we will again be using ePACT, a secure digital solution that allows you to quickly share the health and emergency information we need, and provides us with communication tools to ensure we have a way to message you in the event of an illness, injury or larger scale emergency.

Parents will need to create one account per household and complete the electronic form once for each child. If you already have an ePACT account from another organization, you can give Prospect Heights permission to have access to your information, or if you created an account last year you will be able to use the same account. Updates/specific questions for each program may be required.

Please note: ePACT is a different system than the RecTrac system you used to register your child into camps, meaning your login information for RecTrac will not automatically work with ePACT.

 

Please note there will not be day camp on July 4 and 5, 2024
