Mark your calendars for the 20th Annual Regatta at Lake Arthur - August 4th & 5th, 2018

SummersCool

SummersCool (pronounced summer school) began in 2014 as a way to engage more fully with our mission. The courses are designed as educational opportunities to partner with local expert instructors who offer free demos of land & lake activities to the public. These mini-sessions offered during Regatta weekend are available to visitors as a way to engage with just a few of many activities available to enjoy at the park. Our hope is that, after “passing" SummersCool, participants will return to Moraine State Park to practice their new skills and become regular visitors of this regional resource. These eco-recreational opportunities are great for all ages, and we believe you’re never too old to learn a new skill!
