ACA Accreditation

The Park District of Oak Park is proud that many of our camps are accredited by the American Camping Association (ACA). This nationally recognized program, developed exclusively for the camp industry, focuses on program quality, health and safety issues. It also requires us to review every facet of our day camp operations on an annual basis. We have voluntarily submitted to this independent audit by camp experts and have earned this mark of distinction.

 Staff to Camper Ratio

For ACAAccredited Camps is 1:6 for campers ages 3-5, 1:8 for campers ages 6-8, and 1:10 for campers ages 9-13. Campers must be within the camp’s age range by the first day of the session they are signed up for. Any registration submitted without a date of birth will be held until the date is verified. Parents or caregivers will be required to sign their children out of camp on a daily basis, unless we have written permission in advance for a child to go home on their own, in which case the child will sign themselves out of camp (only allowed for campers ages 10 and up).

Health & Emergency Information

Once you register your child for camp, you will be contacted to complete a health and emergency contact form which must be submitted prior to the start of camp.
