HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO RENT A DISTRICT FACILITY?

The cost of renting a District facility varies depending on the type of facility you would like to rent. For example, renting out the cafetorium at Lake Bluff Elementary is less expensive than renting out the VHE Pool. Rates also vary for Shorewood Residents and Non-Residents as well as community groups vs. individuals.
