Summer Camp 2.0 + SPD news
Summer Camp 2.0 coming soon!

Due to space and capacity limits set forth by Governor Pritzker's  Restore Illinois Plan the district is unable to run many of its summer camps as advertised back in January. However, with some changes to format and structure, staff are pleased to announce that a new roster of district camps will run in July and August.

Please honor park playground & basketball court closures! 

The Skokie Park District understands that residents are eager to play on district playgrounds and on its basketball courts. However until they open, it is extremely important that patrons work with staff to honor these closings, as the two areas have been deemed highly unsafe by the state and the CDC.

Why? In short, playgrounds are high-touch and high-contact areas, where COVID-19 is easily transmitted. And basketball courts are simply not conducive to social distancing guidelines. 

Staff hope to open the playgrounds when the state enters Stage 4 of the Restore Illinois Plan, which could be as soon as the end of the month, pending the governor's orders. 

In the mean time, while in the parks, please continue to enjoy walking and running, and gathering with members of the same household.

Offering in-person and virtual music lessons

Some virtual and in-person music lessons are now available through the Devonshire Cultural Center.
