About This Place
Campton Hills is a village in Kane County, Illinois and is a far western suburb of Chicago. The population of the village is estimated to be between 11,000 and 12,500.
The village was established on May 14, 2007 by incorporating 20.3 square miles of Campton and Plato townships. The incorporation followed an April 17 referendum in which 55 percent of voters approved incorporation. Several areas on the village's boundaries disconnected within the first year of incorporation, taking advantage of less restrictive requirements imposed by state statute during that period. As of August 2009, the village comprises 17.16 square miles (44.4 km2).
The village is served by three school districts. The majority is served by St. Charles Community Unit School District 303 while the northern end is served by Central Community Unit School District 301. Kaneland Community Unit School District 302 serves the far southwest portion of the village.
