Greetings from YOUR

Just as it is a certainty that winter will end, it is also a certainty that your Park District will be ready to offer new recreational programs and have all of your parks groomed for the upcoming summer months. As always, your Recreation Department has numerous quality programs to choose from as you can tell by looking through this summer catalog. I would like to draw attention to a few new programs that your Recreation Department has developed; for Early Childhood we now offer Number Crunchers and Five Senses of Fun. For our Adults, we have Couples Line Dancing, Spikeball League and Summer Farmers Market bus trips. As for new Family Events, we are offering Customer Appreciation Day as well as a wonderful Grand Opening Celebration for our newest park Taylor Glen. This park was designed by your Park District staff based on input from the neighborhood this park serves. In order to save money, all engineering and construction management was completed in-house. The final product turned out excellent. Please try and have your family attend this FREE Grand Opening. I’m confident that you will thoroughly enjoy the day. To identify further recreational opportunities, we have developed a Parks Trail Guide that identifies seven local parks that offer a path or trail available for walking; together with the corresponding number of laps that equal one mile. What a great way to improve one’s health by taking a brisk walk in one of your parks! You will find this Park Trail Guide inside this catalog and on the Park District’s website at www.newlenoxparks.org. The ultimate family program is your annual Proud American Days Festival. The location once again will be at the undeveloped property east of Walmart. The dates are July 27-30. Please be sure to mark your calendars.

PRESIDENT’S LETTER

New Lenox Community Park District!

As I mentioned earlier, your parks will be ready and groomed for the upcoming summer months. Part of the grooming process includes update/replace old playground equipment, renovate and repair parking lots at parks and athletic sites and make facilities, parks and athletic sites as ADA accessible as possible. Your parks are consistently being evaluated to determine safety, useful equipment life through preventive maintenance as well as what your Park District can do to better serve the surrounding neighborhood. Overall, your Park District will be concluding a two-year comprehensive master plan early this summer. This master plan, which took two fiscal years to complete in order to better absorb the financial impact, will serve the Park District in prioritizing capital projects while being a necessary tool when applying for grant programs. Lastly, your Park Board of Commissioners have always pointed out that the biggest asset within your Park District is our employees and volunteers. I would like to highlight one of those employees, Mrs. Shirley Braglia. Shirley started her career with the Park District part-time in 1985. Shirley eventually became full-time and ultimately worked her way up to Superintendent of the Recreation Department in 1999. Under Shirley’s leadership, the Recreation Department experienced growth and program diversity each year. The passion and commitment shown by Shirley over the past 32 years is evident by the legacy of quality programs that Shirley leaves behind. When she retires at the end of April 2017, the Park Board of Commissioners as well as the entire Park District staff, want to thank Shirley Braglia for her years of dedicated service and to wish her the best that life can offer as she enjoys the retirement years with her family. Thank You! Remember Staying Active Promotes Good Health! Sincerely, Brian Fischer Park Board President

PARK DISTRICT NEWS

Beyond the Swing Set So Much More than Parks & Playgrounds As we continue our catalog theme, Beyond the Swing Set, created through the New Lenox Community Park District’s participation at the IAPD’s “Parks Days at the Capitol,” we continue to highlight the important sentiment that all Parks and Recreation Agencies provide many more services and create a larger impact than most people realize. We have chosen just a few of the facts that standout as valuable contributions to both the environment and economy that Park Districts and Recreation and Park Departments provide: • In Illinois, transform communities through unlimited park and recreation outlets that lead to sustainable environments. • In Illinois, protect nearly 25,000 acres of natural areas and manage nearly 3,000 miles of trails. • Illinois has 1.5 million acres of public land available for outdoor recreation. Of those lands, 15% are managed by county forest preserve and conservation districts and 10% are managed by Community Park and Recreation Agencies. • Over a 50-year lifetime, a tree will generate $31,250 worth of oxygen, provides $62,000 worth of air pollution control, recycles $37,500 worth of water, and controls $31,250 worth of soil erosion.

• The evaporation from a single large tree can produce the cooling effect of 10 room-sized air conditioners operating 24-hours per day. • Trees save U.S. communities $400 billion dollars in storm water retention. • Approximately 84% of Illinoisans believe that more wildlife habitats should be protected and restored. Further, it is important to share the more tangible economic impact Park Agencies and Departments provide: • More than 356,000 direct jobs. • Almost $32.3 billion in operational spending. • Level of spending generates almost $80 billion in total economic activity. • Boosted the Gross Domestic Product by $38.8 billion. • Supported almost 660,000 jobs paying in excess of $24 billion in salaries, wages and benefits across the nation. • Spent an estimated $22.4 billion on capital programs leading to an additional $59.7 billion in economic activity • $19.6 billion in labor income and more than 340,000 jobs. Through the ongoing spreading of our message, Beyond the Swing Set, our hope is that more individuals and participants will realize the vital role Park Districts play in our mission to “improve the quality of life in our community.” If you would like to review more information about the industry’s impact, please visit www.nrpa.com or www.iapd.com.

CREATE A CLASS The Park District is looking for local “hidden talent” to instruct or lead various recreational classes. Do you like to set your own work schedule? Do you have a background in Fitness, Early Childhood, Craft Design, or any other special ability? If so, please join our staff and contribute to “Quality Community Life” in New Lenox. We are always looking for new instructors with creative ideas. If you have a particular skill or are willing to lead activities, please call 815.485.3584.

What is the S.T.O.P. PROGRAM? S.T.O.P. stands for Stop Trashing Our Parks and will be represented by our mascot, Bucky Beaver, who is dressed as a park ranger and holding a S.T.O.P. sign. Cash rewards will S.T.O.P. be paid for information leading to the apprehension of park vandals. Individuals providing information are not required to identify themselves. Hopefully, kids of all ages can relate to this “friendly mascot” and understand that he is trying to protect the parks.

Reminder to Pet Owners When visiting local parks with your pet, please remember that the Park District and Village ordinances require dogs to be leashed at all times. Owners are responsible for cleaning up any animal excrement from public property.

Commemorative Tree and Bench Program Are you looking for a special way in which to honor a loved one or to commemorate a Special Event? The New Lenox Community Park District’s Commemorative Tree and Bench Program is dedicated to the planting of a tree or placement of a bench in honor of a loved one, organization, or to celebrate your special occasion. There is a variety of trees that can be purchased and planted. Please keep in mind that trees may be purchased at any time, but are only planted in the spring and fall and benches would be installed weather permitting. Please note that these trees and/ or benches may be placed within a park site or at our Sanctuary Golf Course, but restrictions do apply. Each commemorative donation will be designated with a plaque honoring your request. For further information, please call 815.485.3584.

Kiddie Kampus 2017-2018 Ages 3-4 (as of 9/1/17)

KIDDIE KAMPUS

Registration began on Saturday, March 11

38

Limited space available

Meet & Greet Days for Registrants Thursday, September 7 and Friday, September 8 Classes begin the week of Sep. 11, 2017 through May 18, 2018.

What does Kiddie Kampus offer its participants? Children learn many things before going to kindergarten. The New Lenox Community Park District offers preschool classes designed to develop social, emotional and physical skills to ensure school readiness. A child’s separation from parents and involvement with a non-family member is one of many major steps towards his/her development. Kiddie Kampus provides a safe and supportive environment for your child’s first school experience while increasing his/her self-esteem and confidence through age appropriate instruction. Covered during the year are color, shape and number recognition, an introduction to number concepts and letter recognition. Your child’s quest for learning will be nurtured through creative play, building friendships, working individually and cooperating as part of a group. These activities promote patience, sharing and the awareness that there is a whole world of people surrounding and supporting them. Songs, stories, activities and games are used for reinforcement and fun. ACTV#

Due to priority registration of current 3 year-old Kiddie Kampus participants, there are limited spots available in the 4-year-old Kiddie Kampus program.

1. A copy of your child’s birth certificate MUST be provided at registration as well as a voter’s card or tax bill for verification of residency. A child must be four (three for the 3-year old program), on or before Sept. 1, 2017 and must be able to handle bathroom hygiene independently (potty-trained, no diapers). It is very helpful if the child is able to zip/button independently. 2. A $50 non-refundable registration fee, first month’s tuition, along with a T-shirt fee of $10 (if needed) will be collected while pre-registering your child. The remainder of the fees are then divided into eight equal monthly payments. All payments are due on the 15th of the month, beginning September 15th. A late fee of $25 will be assessed to any account that is delinquent. 3. If you pay your full tuition payment at time of registration, the $50 non-refundable registration fee will be waived. Our Kiddie Kampus follows New Lenox School District #122’s calendar year for all full days off except for our Winter Break. Kiddie Kampus is still in session when NLSD has a half day.

Age 4½ (Child MUST be turning five between 9/1/17-12/31/17) LCC (Room 5) Entry C

Ages 3-4 • LCC (Room 4) Entry C

This Kiddie Kampus class is designed to benefit our “older” preschool children who just missed the Kindergarten cut-off. We have created a class geared towards the older learners. This class will meet Mon., Wed. and Fri. for 2.5 hours per day.

This program provides a secure and caring environment that fosters growth in verbal development, small/large motor skills and social skills. This program is specifically created to serve the Tuesday/Thursday preschoolers to extend their day so they receive as many academic hours as their three-day-a-week counterparts in a two-day school week.

To ensure the health and wellness of staff and other participants, we ask that if your child is sick to refrain from sending them to our programs.


Early Childhood

Children must be the correct age by 9/1/17.

Ages Birth-5 LCC (Room 1) Entry C A parent or caregiver stays to interact with their child to encourage socialization during free play time and participation in circle time learning. You’ll be right there to celebrate every discovery with smiles, hugs and an occasional adult size giggle. Infants are also allowed in the class to watch the fun, so no need to find a babysitter. Price is for up to two children only. Third child, please add $6. Please dress in comfortable clothing and bring a pair of non-skid socks to wear during class.

Program Requirements • Children must be the correct age by 9/1/17, unless otherwise specified. In order to provide your child with the best possible recreational and/or learning experience, all of our programs are planned according to the ages listed in our brochure. • Although your child may turn the correct age during a second session of a program, our age requirement date coincides with the school district’s date to assist with the fundamental growth of the child in the age appropriate programs and therefore would not be eligible for registration. • Classes are for child attending only, except for classes with an adult. Parents should not remain in the classroom or gymnasium after dropping off their child. This is in the child’s best interest, as continual interruptions tend to affect participant’s attention span and inhibit the establishment of peer relationships. • All children must be potty-trained, unless they are attending a class where an adult stays with them or otherwise stated in the class description. Diapers are not permitted in independent classes unless stated in the class description. • Please do not bring food to any class, unless previously arranged. • For your children’s safety, all children enrolled in preschool-age programs must be picked up from the specific classroom or program site by their parents or designated guardian. No child will be released from the classroom to anyone other than these individuals. • A mandatory sign-in and sign-out procedure for all participants is required for all Park District Programs.

PARK POLICIES

PARK POLICIES REFUND POLICY

PROGRAM CATALOG DISTRIBUTION

NO REFUNDS ARE GIVEN: (1) once a program begins unless a replacement is found; (2) on material fees unless we cancel a program; (3) on bus trips; or (4) for Special Events or one-day programs. A full refund is issued if we cancel a program or trip.

Our seasonal catalogs are distributed inside the New Lenox Patriot Newspaper. This free newspaper for New Lenox residents only can be subscribed to by visiting 22ndcenturymedia.com/ req/np. For park district residents outside of New Lenox, the Park District relies on the postal service for distribution of our program catalogs. The Park District assumes no responsibility for delivery. Please contact us at 815.485.3584 if you do not receive your catalog.

• When a participant cancels out of a program, a full refund, LESS a $5 Service Charge (per program); will be granted. A $5 service charge will also be assessed on all program transfers. These requests will only be honored if the request is submitted THREE BUSINESS DAYS prior to the start of the program or activity.

• A $30 NSF fee will be added for all returned checks.

A mandatory sign-in and sign-out procedure is required for all participants enrolled in any Park District program. Children must be accompanied by an adult when being escorted to and from class.

• Every effort will be made to process refunds within 30 days, but in some instances it may take longer.

LIABILITY

• All refunds less than $10 will be applied as a credit to the customer’s account.

CANCELLATION Staff reserves the right to consolidate, postpone, reschedule or cancel any program due to change in day, dates, times, instructor, or insufficient enrollment.

64

FOR YOUR SAFETY

If program enrollment does not meet the minimum number of registrants, it will be cancelled seven days prior to the start date. For cancellations due to unforeseen circumstances (i.e. inclement weather, facility emergencies or scheduling conflicts), which are announced by the Lincoln-Way District #210 or New Lenox School District #122 at facilities where Park District programs are scheduled, Park District programming will be cancelled as well. All attempts will be made to reschedule cancelled classes. However, the New Lenox Community Park District is sometimes unable to accommodate make-up classes and will not refund money in such instances.

The New Lenox Community Park District is unable to assume responsibility for injuries, accidents or loss of personal property occurring during programs or activities, in parks or facilities. Such insurance would make programs and user fees prohibitive. It is recommended that participants make provisions to provide this coverage through their family insurance program.

SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM If you are (1) a New Lenox Park District resident and (2) cannot participate for financial reasons, you may be eligible for financial aid. Please contact the Park District’s Director of Recreation at 815.485.3584 for an interview. Please note that the maximum household scholarship benefit is $1,000 per year.

MILITARY DISCOUNT We are pleased to offer a military discount for those who qualify. Please contact 815.485.3584 for further information and details.

PROGRAM BEHAVIOR POLICY Participants are expected to exhibit appropriate behavior at all times. The following guidelines have been developed to help make Park District programs safe and enjoyable for all participants. Additional rules may be developed for particular programs and athletic leagues as deemed necessary by staff. • Show respect to participants and staff; take direction from staff. • Refrain from using abusive or foul language, or from causing bodily harm to self, other participants, or staff. • Show respect to equipment, supplies, and facilities. The New Lenox Community Park District reserves the right to terminate a party’s participation in a Park District program due to that party’s disruptive behavior or conduct.
