ePACT Network

Lincolnwood Parks and Recreation utilizes “ePact Network” for our Summer Day Camps to improve safety and communication between Camp and families.
ePACT Network is used to securely and easily collect your families’ emergency and health information so that we can support you in an emergency. Whether your little one experiences an allergic reaction, suffers a fall, or there’s severe weather impacting a program or camp, ePACT ensures we have the right information at the right time and can easily communicate with you and your emergency contacts.

ePACT helps us save you time, improve your privacy and security, and better support you. After registration, you will receive an email invite to create a free a count where you will provide information to Lincolnwood Parks and Recreation.

Parents & Kids Love Lincolnwood Summer Day Camp

Parents say it best. Here are some quotes from parents of campers:

“My older daughter loved her counselor so much that she was in tears after her last day because she missed her so much. I loved that the counselors were good role models who seem to genuinely like children. They kept them so busy and both my daughters loved every activity. A truly wonderful experience. They’re already looking forward to next summer.”

“It’s a wonderful camp, staff to child ratio is excellent, the kids have a chance to swim nearly every day, they do lots of fun activities, it’s just an overall wonderful place to send your kid – and it’s reasonably priced – even for non-residents!”

“The kids came home every day dirty, exhausted and with pink cheeks. What more can you ask for?”

“This was my daughter’s first summer camp and she loved it. So glad you have the Little Lincolns option for 3 days a week. It was perfect for us and we both loved her first experience at summer camp. We plan to be back next year!”
