School’s Out! Outdoor Adventures with Northwest Passage

AGES: 10 – 14

Join the Winnetka Park District and enjoy a day out on your day off! The experts at PolarExplorers and The Northwest Passage will lead activities including wilderness travel, outdoor cooking, and shelter building in the Skokie Lagoons.

All activities will be held outdoors. The outdoor conditions, temperature, and weather are considered in the selection of activities. Example activities during a class may include snowshoe building, snowshoeing, fire building, dutch oven cooking, navigating the wilderness, shelter building, and scavenger hunts.

Program takes place at Skokie Lagoons. Participants must meet at the Forest Way Picnic Grove #1 (look for the grove and shelter along Forest Way, north of Tower).
