The Lake Forest Parks and Recreation Department hosts a number of themed one day workshops. These workshops are held at either our recreation annex at Everett Elementary School of the Lake Forest Recreation Center and taught by program coordinator Christine Faudel or professionals in the field. Currently, our youth workshops consist of magic classes taught by Gary Kantor and our Safe Sitter program.
Is magic in your heart? This class will help your little wizard learn a few tricks of the trade! Amaze family and friends with tricks that involve cards, ropes, coins, mind-reading, and more. While the tricks may appear difficult, you’ll discover that they are quick to learn and easy to perform. Additionally, you can sign up for this class again and again since brand new tricks are always taught each session!
The Safe Sitter program is a medically accurate childcare curriculum designed to prepare 11-13 year old children to be safe and nurturing babysitters. Our instructors will teach important life skills - business, medical, and safe habits - in this high quality course. Lake Forest Parks and Recreation sponsors this competency based, highly structured, interactive program. Students learn about a wide variety of topics through discussion, practice, and role-play.
