Day Camps

The Vernon Hills Park District summer day camps feature adventure packed days including field trips, water park visits, swimming, sports, crafts and more! All camps fill on a first-come, first-served basis and early registration is encouraged. Each camp is supervised by qualified camp directors and counselors who are first aid and CPR certified.

NEW DAY CAMP FORMAT in 2018! All day camps are offered in four, two-week sessions to offer more flexibility for family schedules. Bus routes are eliminated and extended day camp programs are offered before and after camp with reduced fees!
