All-Youth Kayak Outing to Skokie Lagoons, July 7th

Categories: Events

Youth of all ages are invited to come along on our kayak adventure at the Skokie Lagoons! The lagoons are beautifully restored and maintained natural waterways in Winnetka, just south of the Chicago Botanic Garden. You never know what you’ll find around the next bend. Please RSVP to Youth Ministry Director Alex DeMarco if you plan on coming, as we will want to reserve kayaks (we’ll mostly use tandems).

What to bring? Come dressed and ready to be out on the water for a couple of hours (don’t forget sunscreen!). The suggested donation to help cover the cost of kayak rentals is $5. Each person should bring some money for lunch. All our options are in the $10-15 range (U Dawg U, Taco Nano!, or PNS Noodle Shop).

Itinerary:

9:00 AM – Everyone meets at Northminster. We’ll carpool together from there.

9:20 AM – Arrive at Chicago River Canoe and Kayak (1770 Tower Rd, Winnetka)

9:30/45 AM – Begin lagoons kayaking adventure

11:30/45 AM – Return kayaks and go to lunch (U Dawg U, Taco Nano!, or PNS Noodle Shop)
