Dear Lakeshore Families,

We are excited to welcome you and your family back to our LSF programs! We have worked to revive our programs based on all current guidelines and protocols to ensure the safety of our members and team members! Please see details of our children’s programs below.  

Childcare

Childcare operations will open on Monday, July 6th. Childcare services are available Monday-Sunday from 8:00am-12:00pm. These operations will run on a shortened schedule initially and will expand based on usage and interest. Childcare services require a reservation, which can be made on the My LSF app under Bookings – Childcare. Reservations are limited to a 1.5-hour slot. 

To ensure safety of the children in our care, we are limiting capacity to 16 total kids. Masks are required for those 5 and over, but are not required for those 4 and under, per Chicago childcare guidelines. Our team will greet kids at the check-in counter to take a temperature check. As toys are used, they will be removed from the play space and sanitized.  

Reservations slots are available as follows: 8:00-9:30am, 8:45-10:15am, 9:45-11:15am and 10:30am-12:00pm. Childcare is included in your LSF family membership. If you have any questions regarding our childcare reservations, please email us at KidEvents@LakeshoreSF.com

Outdoor Kids’ Classes

We will continue to host outdoor kids’ classes as a childcare option for those who are not yet comfortable in our indoor childcare play space. These class times match some of our most popular group fitness classes and are available to book on the My LSF App under Classes. These classes will be canceled in the event of rain. Outdoor kids' classes are included in your LSF family membership. If you have any questions regarding these classes, please email KidEvents@LakeshoreSF.com

PeeWee

PeeWee Camp will open on Monday, July 13th. PeeWee Camp will run Monday-Friday from 9:00am-12:30pm and is for kids ages 2-4 years old. In compliance with the governmental requirements, all groups will maintain 10 or fewer campers. Our team of PeeWee teachers will remain with the same group weekly. Weekly registration is required of all PeeWee campers to ensure we maintain this safety measure. Our team will greet PeeWee campers at the door to take a temperature check. Masks are not required for those 4 and under, per Chicago childcare guidelines. Chicago camp guidelines prohibit water activities in Phase 4, so we will not include swimming this season. 

Registration is required of all PeeWee campers.  Please register on the online parent portal here. The weekly cost for LSF members is $295. If you have any questions regarding our PeeWee Camp program, please email us at PeeWee@LakeshoreSF.com

Camp Lakeshore

We have launched our same great camp programs, including weekly themes, dress up days, opening & closing ceremonies, craft activities, science, music, sports, great food options, and more! We are excited to offer traditional day camps and tennis camps as well as a half day camp option. We have a huge outdoor area to utilize for camp programming and will also use area outdoor parks. Most activities will take place outdoors, but we will have specific indoor spaces reserved for a break from the weather. Chicago camp guidelines prohibit water activities in Phase 4, so we will not include swimming this season. To see more details regarding our camp operations, please review this email. Camp registration is available on our parent portal here.  If you have any questions regarding our summer camps, please email LPCamp@LakeshoreSF.com

Aquatics Private Lessons

Our private swim lessons will resume on Monday, July 6th. We are limiting the location and number of lessons to be held in the 1st and 4th floor pools. All lessons will either occur in Lane 1 in the 1st floor pool or the east end of the 4th floor pool. We can host up to 2 private lessons, 1 semi-private lesson or one small group lesson in each of these two spaces at a time.  

For the safety of the swimmers, all instructors will wear plastic face shields. Group lesson times have a 15-minute window between lessons to ensure proper time to exit and/or enter the space. All parents and guardians will be asked to watch the lessons from outside of the pool deck. 

We ask that you email LPAquatics@LakeshoreSF.com to book a private lesson. Private swim lessons start at $38 per lesson and there are package prices available for those who would like to purchase. We are running with a limited number of instructors, so we ask that you contact us to initiate your lesson – once we connect you with an instructor, you will be free to book lessons with that instructor moving forward.

Aquatics Group Lessons

We will launch a group lesson Summer 1 session on July 13th, which will run for four weeks, ending August 9th. There will be another 4-week long Summer 2 session to follow in August & early September. We are limiting the location and number of lessons to be held in the 1st and 4th floor pools. All lessons will either occur in Lane 1 in the 1st floor pool or the east end of the 4th floor pool. There are no make ups available for this short session of group lessons.

Summer’s NOT Canceled!

So, join us for all sorts of fun activities for adults and kids alike. You and your family can look forward to a bicycle parade and festival for July 4th, wine tastings, bags tournaments, live music rooftop events and much, much more! All members are welcome to attend events at either Lakeshore Sport & Fitness location.  See our Lincoln Park calendar of events here

The LSF Team
