Adventurers will put newly acquired kayaking skills to use on Lake Michigan and the Skokie Lagoons.

This program is 100 percent outdoors, with activities tailored to weather conditions. Adventurers are encouraged and expected to take part in leadership roles on and off the water throughout the program. By engaging in the decision-making and risk assessment processes, adventurers will complete the program having developed outdoor and leadership skills that will serve them for the rest of their lives.
