Day and Overnight Camps

Phase 4

The Revitalization Phase of the Restore Illinois public health approach to reopening the Illinois economy includes larger gathering sizes, additional businesses reopening and increased capacities. We must all continue to social distance, frequently wash our hands and cover our faces to maintain progress in overcoming COVID-19.

The following documents apply to businesses that meet the following criteria:

  • Examples of camps include (non-exhaustive): recreational day camps, educational day camps, religious day camps, park district camps, YMCA camps, Boy Scout camps
  • Note: overnight camps are permissible provided the mitigation measures identified in this document are followed
  • Note: organizations that operate across multiple workplace environments should refer to applicable Phase IV guidelines for guidance on those workplaces
  • Note: As of March 18, 2021, camp building capacity limits are determined by a space’s ability to accommodate 6-feet of social distancing, when possible. Group sizes should be 30 participants or fewer. Capacity restrictions and group sizes will be reassessed on an ongoing basis throughout Phase IV
