Campton Hills is a village in Kane County, Illinois and is a far western suburb of Chicago. The population of the village is 11,131 per the 2010 US Census.The village was established on May 14, 2007, by incorporating 20.3 square miles of Campton and Plato townships, including the unincorporated community of Wasco. 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. The first president and one of the founders of the village was Patsy Smith. Due to confusion over the requirements of Illinois election laws, an opposition group filed nominating petitions for a primary election to be held in February 2015; in previous municipal elections it had been believed that a primary was not required for the non-partisan general election. Over the objections of Smith and her supporters, a Kane County judge affirmed the requirement for a primary.
