2022 Summer Camp Information!

Registration for Summer Camp 2022 begins in February 14!  

You may register online or in-person at the Gary Morava Recreation Center.

Once registration is completed please be sure to visit our website to download the parent handbook.  

Every child must have completed emergency forms on file prior to participation in the program.

* New for 2022, we will be using an electronic format, ePACT, for paperwork which can be used for day camp and also other programs such as Kinder Stop and Creative Kids Preschool!  Parents will need to create 1 account per household and complete the paperwork 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. Updates/specific questions for each program may be required. More information will be sent via email, via website, and at the front desk at Gary Morava Recreation Center.
