Special Recreation Association of Central Lake County

The Vernon Hills Park District is a cooperative member agency of the Special Recreation Association of Central Lake County. SRACLC provides community based therapeutic recreation programs and services to people of all ages with disabilities or special needs.  SRACLC is a cooperative effort of the Grayslake, Vernon Hills, and Mundelein Park Districts and the Villages of Hawthorn Woods, Lake Zurich, Libertyville, and Lincolnshire. Individuals residing within the boundaries of the Member Agencies are considered “residents” of SRACLC and may utilize the services.

SRACLC offers more than 500 weekly programs, special events, and camps during the year. SRACLC also recognizes that some people with disabilities prefer to participate in recreation programs within their own Park District or Recreation Department. SRACLC can help you with this opportunity by providing an extra staff, if deemed necessary, behavior management support, disability awareness training, and other adaptive services necessary for safe and successful participation.
