General Information

Read below for more information about the registration process.

Age Qualification

The District establishes appropriate age qualifications for each of its programs. Only the program supervisor is authorized to make exceptions to these age ranges. Consideration will only be given once all age-appropriate participants have had an opportunity to register.

Senior Citizen Discount

Senior discounts are available for individual passes and memberships to our Fitness Center for residents aged 62 and older. For all other programs and the Family Aquatic Center, a 20% discount will be applied.

Payment Policy

Households with an unpaid balance will not be allowed to register for any Vernon Hills Park District programs, activities, memberships, or rentals until the balance is paid in full. For assistance with an unpaid balance contact the Office Manager at 847.996.6803.

NSF Policy

A $25 service charge will be assessed on all checks returned due to non-sufficient funds (NSF).


A positive approach is used regarding discipline. Staff periodically reviews rules with participants during programs. If inappropriate or unacceptable behavior occurs, prompt resolution will be sought and the Behavior Code of Conduct will be used as a guideline. The Park District reserves the right to remove a participant whose actions endanger the safety of others or himself.

Americans with Disabilities

The Vernon Hills Park District will comply with the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), which prohibits discrimination in the provision of programs, services, or activities to individuals with disabilities. We invite any participant with a special need to contact our staff or our SRA staff, upon registration, so that a smooth inclusion can occur. If you have any questions regarding the Park District’s ADA policy, or you believe you have been unfairly discriminated against in the provision of programs, services, or activities of the Vernon Hills Park District, please contact Jeff Fougerousse, Executive Director, at 847.996.6806. For the deaf or hearing-impaired, call the Illinois Relay Center voice only operator at 800.526.0857.

Food Allergy Policy

The Park District will attempt to accommodate each program participant who has a food allergy in order to provide the safest learning environment possible. A Food Allergy Action Plan will be created by the District staff and parents and will identify operational practices for parents, teachers, and children to follow. For a copy of the Food Allergy Action Policy, contact Tom Ritter, Superintendent of Recreation, at 847.996.6802.
