Volunteer Opportunities


The Village of Campton Hills provides the opportunity to serve your community through volunteering. Positions are available on various Village committees.

Would you like to help? We have openings on:

  • Water Resources
    To provide guidance and input on matters related to water resources to the Village. To promote responsible, best practices, sustainable and effective use and protection of water resources.


  • Finance Committee
    The Finance Committee is charged with providing financial oversight and guidance to the Village Board, recommend the annual budget, and review investment strategies and financial policies.


The Committee volunteers attend committee meetings as set by an annual calendar by the Village Board. 


We hope you are interested in volunteering. Please email President Blecker at hblecker@villageofcamptonhills.org. Thanks for your interest, we're all in it together.

Citizen Police Academy


The Citizen Police Academy is a ten (10) week program designed to give the participants a working knowledge of the Campton Hills Police Department and police work in general. The  academy consists of a series of interactive classes held once a week for approximately 2 hours. There is no cost to any student who participates. Background checks will be conducted on each applicant.  The classes are usually held in the winter months. The schedule for the next class will be announced several months in advance.

Collaboration Through Community Involvement


Holiday Lights

Holiday Lights
2nd Annual Recycling

Last year, Village of Campton Hills residents brought in 259 pounds of holiday light strands for recycling. For our 2nd annual holiday lights recycling program, our goal is to recycle over 300 lbs of holiday lights. Please help us get the word out regarding this recycling effort to help get another recyclable commodity out of the land fills. 

Lights accepted include: Italian mini-lights, traditional lights, extension cords, rope lights, LED lights. Lights can be in working or non-working condition, from any holiday!

Please bring your lights for recycling to Village Hall during the hours of 9-4, Monday thru Friday. We have partnered with Elgin Recycling and they have confirmed they can extend our collection period, so we can still them. The last day the Village will be accepting holiday lights will be Friday, January 20, 2017.

Featured Business of the Month
Celebrate Differences Logo

Celebrate Differences


Jeff and Rebecca Christiansen who have a son with Down syndrome started Celebrate Differences almost 10 years ago, in Oswego.  Their goal was to foster a community of acceptance which promotes the best opportunities for individuals with disabilities to exceed expectations and achieve their dreams.

Celebrate Differences offers services for all ages.  Some of the programs they offer are parent support groups, teen groups, play groups and book club.

Phillis and her husband Chuck are very excited to bring Celebrate Differences to this area!  Both are inspired by their daughter Caitlin, who experienced a traumatic brain injury at age
2 ½.  After Caitlin graduated from high school, her parents found there are very limited resources, and the cost for programs were too expensive.  Their desire for Caitlin was to find place where young adults could meet, make new friends, be creative, learn new skills and most of all, be themselves. 

With the opportunity to open a second location of Celebrate Differences in this area, young adults will be given an avenue and opportunity to become a prominent part of their community.

As we are in the first stages to offer a wonderful opportunity, please visit our website to see what we are all about and see how you can help.
