Day Camps

The Vernon Hills Park District is providing a safe summer day camp experience for the children of our community

The safety of our staff and participants is of the utmost importance. Day Camp activities will be modified and adjusted based on recommendations and guidance from public health officials. The Summer Day Camp Family Handbook will be made available on April 1, 2022 and will be updated throughout the summer as we make any necessary changes to follow the guidance and direction of the IDPH and CDC.
