After School Adventures participants develop outdoor and leadership skills, learn about our local natural spaces and resources, and actively contribute to the conservation of those spaces. And they do it all in small groups while observing physical distancing. Adventurers interact with one another in person in a safe environment.

NWP After School Adventures provides an opportunity for students to stretch their bodies and minds outside of the traditional or virtual classroom. It’s a real-life learning experience “in real life." 

Over the course of four two-hour (once weekly) sessions, adventurers will put newly acquired kayaking or SUP skills to use on Lake Michigan and the Skokie Lagoons. They will also explore our Great Lake by stand up paddleboard, and participate in conservation projects supporting our local beaches and forest preserves. Each session is active and, weather conditions permitting, 100% outdoors.

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. 

NWP After School Adventures is all about developing skills and interest in outdoor recreation and conservation while having a blast with friends along our beautiful local waterways. Ages 10-14
