Wed April 24, 2024

The Crystal Lake Park District is excited to announce that our Summer Day Camp program was recognized as one of America's Best Summer Camps by Newsweek Magazine. Congratulations to Crystal Lake Park District Recreation Supervisor in charge of Summer Day Camp Sam Thompson and all of our amazing summer day camp staff!

The list presents the 500 best U.S. summer camps, split into 200 day camps and 300 overnight camps. The locations are ranked based on a survey of 30,000 parents conducted in 2023 and 2024 and nearly 700,000 social media reviews on Google and Facebook. Camps were rated on criteria like selection of offered activities, accessibility, staff-to-children ratio and camp safety.
