CAP Registration 2016/2017

CAP Registration for new participants began May 2, 2016. Please read page 1 of the registration packet for specific guidelines. New this year is a $50 non-refundable registration fee due at the time of registration. The Registration Fee is not included in the total fees listed below.

Two payment options:

  1. Pay in Full: Pay the $50 registration fee plus the total CAP fee and receive a 5% discount (deducted the CAP fee). A credit/debit card must be saved to the payer’s online registration profile.*
  2. Payment Plan: $50 registration fee due at time of registration. Nine automatic monthly payments will be deducted August 1, 2016 through April 1, 2017. A credit or debit card must be saved to the payer’s online registration profile. *

Additional Information

Completed registration forms are returned to the Park District Administration Center. Registrations can be mailed, put in the night drop-box (available 24 hours/day), faxed to 847.577.6935, emailed to or dropped off in-person Monday-Friday between 8:30am-4:30pm.
A discount is available for two or more children enrolled in the CAP program. The additional child(ren)’s fee is reduced by approximately 10%. A 5% discount is available when the program fee is paid in full at the time of enrollment (when enrollment begins prior to December).
All registrations received prior to the first day of registration, along with all registrations received by 4:30pm on the first day of registration, are randomly sorted and processed together. After the first day of registration, all registrations are processed on a daily basis. Any registrations received after 4:30pm or over the weekend are processed with all registrations received on the next business day. This ensures fairness regardless of the method of registration used. If an opening is available, the child is placed in the program. Once a child is registered, parent/guardians can view confirmation from the online profile. If an opening is not available in the plan that has been requested, a CAP Coordinator will contact the parent/guardian and offer an alternative plan if one is available. If no alternative is available, the child is placed on a waiting list.
Once the school year begins, registration requires approval. After receipt of the completed forms, the parent/guardian is contacted by phone. The child can start in the program 4 business days after notification of acceptance into the program. The initial amount due at registration will be adjusted and may be different than the amount listed on the registration form depending on the program start date.
