Fort Sheridan is a fascinating place full of natural and cultural history. This session focuses on hands-on activities along the lakeshore of Lake Michigan.

This program is for children ages 9-12 by the first day of the program.

We are unable to make age exceptions because activities are geared to cognitive, emotional and physical abilities for this program's specific age range.

The Sunday prior to the session date, you will be emailed details of what your child should wear and bring. Please be sure to check your junk/spam folder.
