|Peterson Park Camp|
The Vernon Hills Park District is providing a safe summer day camp experience for the children of our community
We are offering modified versions of our traditional day camps in limited quantities. All camps will consist of small groups separated by location with the intent to allow for little to no crossover between camp groups. Each camp will have multiple groups of kids that stay together for the duration of camp. Increased sanitation, face coverings when necessary, and social distancing restrictions will be practiced in accordance with IDPH, DCEO, and CDC guidelines.
– Kids enrolled in elementary age camps must complete a swim test to enjoy their pool days at the Family Aquatic Center. See below for information on swim tests.
– Campers bring their own disposable lunches.
– Due to the need to limit group sizes and to provide indoor shelter in case of inclement weather, there is a limited number of spaces available for registration.
– Identification is required to pick up your camper at the end of each day.

Day Camp Swim Test
Campers enrolled in elementary age camps (Grades K-3, Grades 4-7, Last Blast Day Camp) are required to pass a basic swim test to be able to swim with the Vernon Hills Park District. Swim tests are conducted at the Family Aquatic Center on the dates listed below. Choose one date to attend. Please note that campers who do not attend a swim test on one of these dates will forgo swim time at camp in order to complete testing.
Swim Test Requirements Campers will try to complete basic swim skills (e.g., swim length of the pool without touching the wall or ground).
Upon completion of the swim test, campers are assigned a swim band color: Red = Non-Swimmer (restricted to zero-depth pool); Green = Swimmer
