** Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the outdoor education program will be suspended. Please follow us on Facebook as we continue to give updates on programs offered through the Township.** 


Youth and Family Services offers fun and creative weekly educational offerings about and in the great outdoors!  Parents, have your child come join the fun and expand their knowledge about nature and put their creative skills to work.

Our Outdoor Education programming takes place weekly on Wednesdays, 12:00PM - 4:00PM, at our Izaak Walton Center and Reserve.  The program runs during the summer from June 6th - July 28th.  The Center is located at 899 Jay Street, in Elgin, 60120.  This opportunity is offered in conjunction with our Summer Open Gym Program - so there is so much more fun to have for your child - and there is no charge for these programs!  For further information, please call (630) 483-5799 or email Michael Miguel, Program Coordinator, at
