Courts Plus News
Courts Plus is excited to welcome members back with outdoor group exercise classes beginning Friday, June 12! Classes will be kept to 9 participants, with 1 instructor, and only be open to Courts Plus Members. Registration will be required. Fee is $10/class.
The 'traditional' Courts Plus Summer Camps that many children have enjoyed through Courts Plus and the Elmhurst Park District will not be offered this summer. Day Camp 2020 is our alternate summer program that will exist within the guidelines of Phase 3: Recovery.
The Elmhurst Park District looks forward to continuing to reopen and fulfill its mission of Enriching lives while having fun!
We wish you the very best of health during these trying days of COVID-19 closures. While Courts Plus is closed, our Group Exercise partner, Les Mills, is offering free access to their online platform, which features 95 workouts across 8 categories. Check your email!
May 28 Update - Phase 3 reopening update from Elmhurst Park District
In accordance with the State of Illinois’ Restore Illinois Plan, staff continues to plan for the return of programming and reopening of facilities as detailed in Phase 3-Recovery, which is set to begin Friday, May 29. We continue to monitor the progress as we move through these phases, and we are prepared to adjust our plan as we get closer to Phase 4-Revitalization.
Below are the details for specific areas of interest:
- Summer Day Camp (including Courts Plus camps): Staff is creating a revised version of our traditional day camps as many families rely on camp for childcare. Day Camp 2020 will be held starting Monday, June 22 at Wagner Community Center and the Eldridge Recreation building and will follow the guidelines set by Phase 3. This camp is similar to Funseekers but will not include the field trips and swimming at East End or Smalley Pools. Safety, as always, is top of mind. The restructured day camp will incorporate smaller group sizes, separate locations allowing for little to no crossover between camp groups, increased sanitation practices, face coverings when necessary, and social distancing restrictions in accordance with Illinois Department of Public Health and CDC guidelines. Due to the need to keep camp groups separate and provide indoor shelter for each group, there will be a limited number of spaces available for registration. Priority registration will go to those people who had already registered for Funseekers or Courts Plus camp. More information will be released in the coming week.
- Courts Plus: Courts Plus staff is currently working on a Phase 3 reopening of the fitness floor and outdoor fitness classes with limited capacity and advanced reservations. A reopening date will be announced shortly and more specific information will be provided to Courts Plus members as soon as possible. Potential summer camp opportunities at Courts Plus are being considered for Phase 4. All other areas are being evaluated for opening in Phase 4 and 5.
