Every summer, the city’s parks echo with the shrieks and giggles of kids enjoying soccer, swimming, tennis and countless other fun activities.
Registration is set to begin Thursday, June 11, for the Chicago Park District’s Day Camp abbreviated program. Don’t expect your kid to have quite the same experience as in years past. For one, there’s no swimming or field trips — and kids will be expected to bring and wear masks every day.
Camp organizers say children should expect smaller group sizes, social distancing and if they have any possible symptoms of the coronavirus, they will be isolated and a parent will be called to take them home.
Day camp runs from July 6 through Aug. 14 at 148 parks across the city.
