    Educational Programs for Students and Scouts

    The park is ideal for outdoor learning opportunities for Adventure Outdoor canoe or fishing (with a cookout) or a 1850s Illinois Pioneer Homestead Program. Let us help your Boy or Girl Scouts earn those fun and exciting conservation or environmental badges.

    Attention Program Coordinators and Activity Directors

    We can arrange a special program for your clients at Sommer Park. Consider hikes on our scenic trails, canoeing, and fishing. We can also offer pioneer history or genealogy at our homestead, cemetery, or one-room schoolhouse, along with a campfire or hayrack ride.
