Deerfield Park District offers afternoon summer camps that take place immediately following Deerfield School District 109 Summer School classes, with transportation from schools to camps for some offerings. Four individual weeks of camp are offered, beginning Monday, June 16. An additional "Before Summer School starts" option, due to the extended school year caused by severe winter weather, has been added for three days: June 11-13. Hours and fees vary for all camps.
"Before Summer School Camps," Wed. -- Fri., June 11-13, include six different camps: Art, Baseball, Basketball, Football, Golf and Robotics. The four different weeks of "After Summer School Camps" (with varying days, hours and fees) are designed as follows: Week 1 (June 16-20): Baseball, Computers, Cooking, Golf, Crafting, Robotics and Tennis; Week 2 (June 23-27): Computers, Crafting, Golf, Sports and Video Gaming; Week 3 (June 30-July 3): Computers, Crafting, Science, Soccer and Tennis; and Week 4 (July 7-11): Computers, Crafting and Golf.
