The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

Event Details

Close the summer out on the water at Monee Reservoir. Choose a kayak or canoe to paddle, taking in the last little bit of summer. Let certified instructors guide you on a tour of the reservoir. Then, end around a campfire to roast hot dogs and s’mores.

This is a recreational, non-instructional program. All equipment is provided. Wear clothing that can get wet, including water shoes or old gym shoes.

Prior paddling experience is strongly recommended. We also offer private, one-on-one instruction. If interested, call 708.534.8499.
