I want to use one of the District’s youth-group campgrounds. Is my group eligible?
Youth groups are defined as recognized, nonprofit organizations with bylaws and articles of incorporation on file with the Secretary of State and must be insured on forest preserve property. Only members of these groups, with their accompanying leaders, may camp in these areas. Camping permits and adult supervision of one leader over 21 years of age for every 10 children are mandatory for use of these areas. For complete details, including permit information, visit Camping
