Growing Up In Lake County

Experience what life was like growing up in Lake County from the 1800s-1900s through games, toys, daily activities, and family traditions. Participants will play games such as the Potawatomi game Double Ball, make toys like the Early Settler’s buzz saw, and learn in a one-room schoolhouse. Each day will involve crafts, games, and hands-on learning opportunities.

This program is for children ages 6-8 by the first day of the program.

We are unable to make age exceptions because activities are geared to cognitive, emotional and physical abilities for this program's specific age range.

Please complete and turn in all forms at least one week prior to the start of the session.

Forms and itineraries available at Summer Programs - Education Programs | Lake County Forest Preserves (
