    • MANAGEMENT PLAN How you can help... Your cooperation and support is important to the restoration of our beautiful landscape. We offer many volunteer opportunities at all times of the year. Another way you can help is by sharing this information with your neighbors and telling them to call us with any questions or concerns. We invite you to take part in our outdoor education programs run by our Prairie Grass Nature Museum. We encourage everyone to learn about the role nature plays in our lives and the importance of protecting it through conservation. By taking part in these programs, we insure the integrity of our landscape and the safety and health of all for generations to come. 814 Hart Rd. • Round Lake, IL 60073 847-546-8558 • www.rlapd.org

In 2007, the district’s summer camp program promises to offer yet another exciting experience for the children of Skokie! Whether your child’s interests lie in sports, art, theater, or outdoor adventure, the Skokie Park District offers a wide range of programs to make your child’s summer a memorable one. We also are proud to continue to offer special services (see pages 3 and 10) that will meet your families’ needs. Perhaps our camp program’s greatest resource is its highly trained staff.

This nationally-recognized program, developed exclusively for the camp industry, focuses on program quality and health and safety issues, and requires the district to review every facet of our day camp operations on an annual basis. We have voluntarily submitted to this independent audit by camp experts and have again earned this national mark of distinction. In addition to its wonderful staff and national recognition, Skokie Park District summer camps also offer the following opportunities for your child: • making new friends • promoting an active and healthy lifestyle • gaining self-confidence • improving swimming skills • learning new skills • exploring the outdoors, and • fun-filled days and nights • increasing self-esteem. • great exercise We hope that you can take the time to look through this guide — and find camps that fit the individual needs of your child and your family. On Wednesday, January 17, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., at the Oakton Community Center, our programmers will be available at the district’s Annual Summer Camp Open House, to discuss your child’s needs.

    • Earth Adventures Camps Our Earth Adventures Camps are specialized programs designed to heighten a child’s sense of relationship with the natural world and teach age-appropriate outdoor recreational skills. Each camp is supervised by a director and four college-aged leaders (a 1:8 leader to camper ratio) who involve the campers in captivating, highly structured daily activities. Though each camp is different in content, the Earth Adventures series aims to help campers feel capable and comfortable while journeying through the natural places Bus on earth. All campers swim twice weekly at one of the park district pools. Earth Explorers Explore the wildest places! Earth Explorers are on a mission to explore the wild places at the nature center and get to know the plants and animals that live in the area. Their local earth adventures involve them in animal expeditions, nature games, discovery parties, and savanna safaris. We’ve also scheduled a presentation that features real hawks, reptiles, and other wild critters! Although Earth Explorers are not taught outdoor recreation skills, they are invited to share in cookout desserts prepared by the Earth Travelers and Rangers, and they accompany the older campers on a canoe ride around our pond.
