Over three days, campers will develop solo paddling skills and explore nature through on-water science activities. Conditions permitting, the final day is spent paddling the Des Plaines River.
Alternate paddle location for the final day may be Hastings Lake (Lake Villa). Beginner level.
This camp is for children ages 13-15 by the first day of camp.
We are unable to make age exceptions because activities are geared to cognitive, emotional and physical abilities for this camp's specific age range.
Drop off and Pick up is at the Visitors Center circle drive unless stated otherwise on the camp's itinerary.
Please download, complete and turn in all Summer Camp Registration forms soon after registration. Forms must be received at least one week prior to the start of your camp session. You can find all camp forms here https://www.lcfpd.org/education/camps/forms-guidelines/
