The City of Evanston 2013 Summer Camp Guide is now posted online at www.cityofevanston.org/summercamps. Starting January 14, 2013, printed copies will be available at the Lorraine H. Morton Civic Center (2100 Ridge Ave.), Evanston Recreation Division community centers, and the main and north branch Evanston Public Libraries. Printed copies also will be delivered the week of January 14 to those Evanston elementary schools that have agreed to help distribute the guides.
Camp registration will kick off with a new priority registration lottery process. Evanston residents can enter the lottery from Feb. 5-22 by applying at www.cityofevanston.org/register. No payment is required to participate in the lottery. During the lottery period, residents without access to a computer can enter their children into the lottery by visiting the Morton Civic Center, Robert Crown Community Center, Chandler-Newberger Community Center, Fleetwood-Jourdain Community Center, Evanston Ecology Center or Noyes Cultural Arts Center.
Camp options include general day camps, as well as camps specializing in sports, arts, ecology and aquatics. Full-day and half-day options are available and camps range in length from one week to the entire summer.
Camps are offered for all ages. For instance, there are 12 camp options for preschoolers; 23 camps for 8-year-olds; 28 camps for 11-year-olds; 16 camps for 14-year-olds; and older teens can participate in Battle of the Bands Mini-Camp, Aquatic Camp, Figure Skating Camp and Leader-in-Training camps.
