Outside Group Pool Visits
Requests for Summer 2024 will be taken starting in October 2023
Any Daycares wishing to visit the Park District of Oak Park Pools must first contact the Program & Operations Manager to go through necessary training and complete all necessary paperwork including a certificate of insurance and contract. Camps and Daycares who are found to enter the facility without going through proper training and providing insurance will be asked to leave the facility and forfeit their admissions. The process includes: a 2-hour training for all staff that will attend with the daycare/camp participants, a 45-minute water safety day on the first day of swimming for all daycare/camp participants, contract completion, and certificate of insurance, and more. Additionally:
- Visits must be requested at least 12 weeks prior to first visit and may only take place during dedicated camp swim time at Rehm Pool. Ridgeland Pool does not accept additional external camps due to space constraints.
- All daycare/camp participants attending must be at least 5 years of age to attend swim time and DSFS ratios must be followed.
