Masks Recommended

Monday, August 2, 2021


The CDC has indicated that in general, people do not need to wear masks when outdoors. This includes all campers and outdoor program participants, as well as Glencoe Beach and park visitors.


  • Masks must be worn indoors at all times by staff and participants at any Park District program that includes children under age 12. This is to protect individuals ineligible for vaccination and includes all preschool and school-age camps, as well as other indoor youth programs.
  • Masks must be worn in "common spaces" at Park District facilities, including restrooms, hallways, lobbies, and entrances. This is to protect individuals ineligible for vaccination.
  • Masks must be worn indoors by staff, parents, and children in our Early Childhood wing. This rule is mandated by our DCFS childcare license and includes Baby Bear, Panda Bear, Koala Bear, and Teddy Bear campers, as well as Children's Circle participants.
  • We strongly recommend individuals wear masks indoors in all other areas.
