Kapco Park + Learning = Chinooks Education Day

Mequon, WI – It’s nearing the end of the school year and teachers and students have been stuck inside the classroom all year long. Well, take a break from the books and make Kapco Park your classroom for the day! On June 1st, the Chinooks will host their first ever Education Day.

Lakeshore will take on their Northwoods League South Division Rival, the Madison Mallards at 11:35am with gates opening at 10:30am. Education Day will have a number of pre-game festivities including a history of baseball lesson. For our history of baseball lesson, we will be joined by a number of organizations who will help us take a look at how the game of baseball has changed since the 1800’s and early 1900’s. Other special guests will also be announced in the coming weeks.

Before the Chinooks play, students and teachers can take the field in our pre-game parade around Kapco Park. Following the game, students can run around the bases and meet their favorite Chinooks players with a special autograph session.

A special Education Day package is now available for purchase. For just $9, each person will receive a reserved grandstand ticket, hot dog, chips, and a beverage. Other special ticket offers and discounts are also available.

For more information on Education day or to order tickets, contact Megan Chatterton by calling 262-618-4659 or emailing tickets@lakeshorechinooks.com. Our office in Grafton (995 Badger Circle) is open Monday-Friday from 8:00am to 5:30pm. We hope your school can join us at Kapco Park to celebrate the end of the school year!
