Scout Programs


We offer expertly guided, hands-on scout programs throughout Lake County.

Our scout programs are designed to address Illinois Learning Standards and can be customized to fit your needs. Programs offer hands-on learning incorporating science, social studies, history and language arts, and feature experts, local historians and naturalists. 

In addition to field trips, our education programs and staff are packed and ready to travel. Programs are economically priced and designed for one classroom of students. Programs are available at convenient locations throughout the county to minimize bus transport. Special discounts are available for multiple programs booked in a single day—begin by filling out our program inquiry form or call 847-968-3320 for details.

Browse available school and scout programs and sign up for our educator e-newsletter for special offerings year-round. Registration for our popular programs begins July 1, so you can have field trip plans in place before the rush of the new school year begins.
