Camp Deposits

A deposit is required for each week a child is enrolled. The deposit will be 10% of the weekly fee. This deposit will be applied towards the total cost of the specific week of camp. Deposits are non-refundable and non-transferrable.

Camp Payments

Camp may be paid for in full at the time of registration, or placed on a payment plan. Payment plans require the use of a debit or credit card, and will be charged two weeks prior to the specific week of camp enrolled.

Camp Refund Policy

Camp refund requests made prior to the camp registration deadline; receive a refund, less the 10% non-refundable/non-transferable deposit (per camp/per child). No camp refunds will be issued after the camp registration deadline. All camp refund requests must be made in writing. Forms are available online or at the Sullivan Community Center. Refund requests will be reviewed on a case by case basis.

Camp Required Swim Test – June 2

Campers are required to complete a basic swim test to be able to swim with the Vernon Hills Park District. Campers who cannot attend the swim test on June 2 will be tested on their first pool day in camp. See Summer Camp Family Handbook for details. No test is required for early childhood camps or Counselor-In-Training.

Camp Lunch Option

Camp lunch options and Extended Care are available as add-ons for select camps. On the two days per week that your child’s camp visits the Family Aquatic Center, Bo-Bo’s Poolside provides lunch ($17 additional fee) with four meal options: hot dog, peanut butter sandwich, chicken nuggets, and hamburger. Each meal includes a drink and a side (fries, chips or fruit cup). In the event of inclement weather, Bo-Bo’s will deliver the meals to the campsites.

Extended Care

If you need a place for your camper to stay after the regular camp day (3-6 pm), help is here! Extended Care is available to campers enrolled in Adventure Day Camp, Trailblazers Camp, The Great Outdoors, Teens Helping Hands Camp, Art Sparks, and Kid Zone Camp. Campers will be transported and/or walked from their day camp site to Extended Care at the Sullivan Community Center.

Family Scholarship Program

To help ensure that every resident has the opportunity to participate in recreation programs, the Vernon Hills Park District has established a Family Scholarship Program. Financial aid is available to families, residing in the District, who are experiencing temporary financial difficulty.  Applications are available at the Sullivan Community Center.  For more information, please contact Tom Ritter at or (847) 996-6802.
