Camp Wewannago

Grades 1-7 (2021-2022 School Year)
Haines Wayside Park

Camp Wewannago is designed to provide a safe, structured and fun environment for children in first through seventh grade. Your child’s day will be filled with group activities, games, sports, arts and crafts, field trips and more. Camp Wewannago is staffed with trained employees who will be wearing neon yellow staff shirts so they can be easily seen.

Important Information:

  • We will be splitting Camp Wewannago by grades (1-3 and 4-7). We will remain in separate groups while at camp, but will come together for field trips
  • All campers will be dropped-off and picked-up at Haines School
  • Masks MUST be worn
  • Campers are required to wear their camp T-shirt every day
    • Campers in grades 1-3 will wear turquoise Camp Wewannago T-shirts
    • Campers in grades 4-7 will wear lime green Camp Wewannago T-shirts
    • T-shirts are available for purchase at $7 each

Camp T-shirts will be available to be picked up when you pay your one-time registration fee of $30. If you pay this fee online, you will need to come to the Administration Building, 701 W. Haven Avenue, to pick up your Camp T-shirts.

  • Each camper will be required to bring a lunch and drink each day (unless otherwise noted)
  • All field trip costs are included in the weekly fee, and we will have maximums of campers which can be enrolled on these days.
  • On “Water Days”, be sure to send your child with a swimsuit, towel and sunscreen
  • In case of inclement weather or extreme heat, we will utilize Haines and Oakview Schools
  • If extended care is needed before and/or after camp, we would encourage you to register for our Before and After Camp Care programs

Registration begins Monday, May 10. Online weekly registration will be available after your one-time $30 registration fee has been paid. To ensure proper staffing, weekly payment is due by 8:00am on the Tuesday of the previous week or a $25 late fee will be charged per camper. No walk-up registration is allowed.

An informational video will be available for Camp Wewannago families on our website. This video will review the handbook and help you learn more about the program. Please reach out to the program supervisor, Jess, at jtompkins@newlenoxparks.org with further questions.

All participants must fill out the Camp Wewannago Registration Form (located on our website or at the Park District’s registration window) or through online registration when signing up.

ePACT is a secure emergency network, that we will use to collect medical and emergency contact information electronically. Not only will ePACT replace paper forms, but it will also ensure we have a way to communicate with you.

  • Click ‘Complete Request’ to create a free account, or log-in if you already have an existing ePACT account.
  • Enter the required information, like medical conditions, and share it with New Lenox Community Park District so that program staff have access.
