Camp Forms

The Urbana Park District is now using ePACT to take the place of our previously-used Camper Information Forms. This web-based tool is used by organizations and families to collect and store up-to-date information for all its members that can be accessed easily in cases of emergencies. There, you can input information about your camper such as allergies, dietary restrictions, emergency contacts, and more. This is also where you will designate who is allowed to pick up your camper from camp, and upload photos of those individuals.

After registering your camper, you will receive an email invitation to set up an ePACT account through their online portal. It is required that each camper has all of their information completed ePACT before the first day of camp. You will not be permitted to drop off your camper at camp until this step is complete. If you need access to an internet-connected device in order to setup your camper’s ePACT account, one can be provided for you.

If your child must take medication during the camp day, please complete the Medication Administration Packet and return it to camps@urbanaparks.org or in person at the Phillips Recreation Center. We strongly discourage administering medication at camp unless medically necessary. If possible, ask your physician to write the prescription so that the medication can be given outside of camp hours.

If your child has a special need or disability, you may request an Inclusion Aide from Champaign-Urbana Special Recreation (CUSR). Email a completed Camp Inclusion Request Form to camps@urbanaparks.org, and a camp coordinator will contact CUSR on your behalf. The CUSR Inclusion Coordinator will then contact you to discuss your child's specific needs. Inclusion requests must be submitted at the time of registration.
