Hello Friends,

What a wonderful time of year! Though most of us do not look forward to this type of weather, I feel there is something special about it. The cold can be brutal, but sometimes it brings peace and serenity if you enjoy being outdoors. If you are not a fan of this weather, have no fear we have something for you. Throughout this guide you will find programs that fit your needs whether you would like to be outside or inside. For those like me who enjoy the outdoors no matter the time of year, don’t forget to join us for our winter hike at Starved Rock State Park. This hike allows you to see a side of Starved Rock that most don’t get to. You can also enjoy the great outdoors by experiencing our Ice Rink. We have once again partnered with the City of Sandwich to provide this fantastic amenity. Grab your skates and join us for a fun time on the ice!  READ MORE
