Rock the Playground with Advocate Condell Medical Center {2017}

Summer 2017 is almost here, which means it’s time to go on tour with Little Lake County!  Our annual summer playdate series returns for the fourth year in a row, and we can’t wait to hit the road to Rock The Playground with Advocate Condell Medical Center.


Starting Wednesday, June 14th, Little Lake County is packing up the minivan and heading on tour for a playdate at a park near you.  In June and July we’ll be bringing the funk to a different and totally awesome Lake County playground.  We’re gonna rock ‘n roll on the swings and party in the sand box.  Come out and jam with us dudes!

If you’ve come out on tour with us before, you know this isn’t your typical walk in the park. Our park district friends are totally amped and are waiting to meet you.  Plus, we’re bringing along some friends to pump up the bass at each and every playdate with added entertainment for all ages.  We’ll play kickball, create arts and crafts, tackle obstacle courses, splash with our friends, and so much more!

Please give a round of applause to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville for making this year’s tour possible.  Parents will get to meet with folks from both Advocate Condell Medical Center and Advocate Children’s Hospital to learn about the resources available to support your family’s health.

Put these dates on your calendar, write them on your forehead, or tattoo them to your chest. You don’t want to miss when we Rock The Playground with Advocate Condell Medical Center.

As if you needed more reason to join us, your kids will have a chance to test out Stomp Rocket, the original 100% KID-powered rockets for active, outdoor fun. Run, jump, STOMP and send your rockets up to 400 feet in the air.  We’ll select one lucky winner to receive a Stomp Rocket of their own at every stop on our tour!

Because active kids need fuel for their playground adventures, GoGo squeeZ will provide samples of their scrumptiously squeezable YogurtZ pouches at every stop on our tour. YogurtZ is “So Cool, It Doesn’t Have To Be Cold.”

FREE registration for our first event on June 14, 2017 at Cynthia T. Peterson Park opens later this week!  Be on the lookout for the announcement or join our mailing list.  E-subscribers never miss a thing and have the latest news delivered directly to their inbox.
