camp forms

A 2019 Camper Information Form is required for each child. Forms must be submitted within two weeks of registration or your child may be dropped from camp or transferred to the wait list. Submit forms to camps@urbanaparks.org or in person at the Phillips Recreation Center.

If your child must take medication during the camp day, please complete the Medication Administration Packet and return it along with your child's Camper Information Form. Packets may be submitted 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 least two weeks prior to the program start date.
