Not only will ePACT replace paper forms, but it will also ensure we have a way to communicate with you in the event of illness, injury, or larger scale emergency. The Parents/guardian listed as the main contact will receive an email, following registration, with directions and a link to complete all required forms through the ePACT Network. The ePACT information must be completed before your child's first day of Day Camp. POOL DAYS: Junior & Senior Day Camp will swim Monday and Friday afternoons at Paradise Bay Water Park. Additional pool days may be offered during some sessions, and parents will be notified of these days in advance. Senior and Teen Campers should bring their swim suit to camp every day. FIELD TRIPS: Junior and Senior Camp will have scheduled field trips every Wednesday and all campers attending on a Wednesday must go on the field trip. Campers must be at camp by 9:00 am on all field trip days. Campers may not be dropped off or picked up at field trip locations. Field trip permission slips will be accessible on our ePACT system and need to be completed prior to the camper's first day of camp. If additional waivers are required for certain field trips, they will be made available on ePACT. Teen Camp will have field trips on Tuesdays and Thursdays and all campers enrolled on those days must attend the field trip. SWIM LESSONS: Swim lessons are available to Lombard Day Camp and Teen Camp participants at a discounted rate.

Campers should be dropped off in their swim gear at the Day Camp drop-off location by 9:00 am on swim lesson days.

WHAT TO BRING TO CAMP: Participants should bring a sack lunch, water bottle, sunscreen and a towel to camp every day. Senior and Teen campers should bring their swimsuit every day and Junior campers should bring their swimsuit every Monday and Friday, as well as Wednesday if the field trip is at an aquatic facility or beach. Every year, the Day Camp lost and found gets very large. Please label your child's belongings with their name to make returning items easier.
