Best Way to Communicate with Lakeshore Departments
The best way to communicate with our department managers to get information about programming or coordinate an instructor is through email as our team members are active around and about the club or working with other members. All of our group emails, such as LPAquatics@LakeshoreSF.com or LPCamps@LakeshoreSF.com are monitored by several people, often with extended hours of coverage, so we can make sure to get back to you as quickly as possible. We do have an expectation of a 24 hour response time for all communications from our team. There have been some issues with spam filters lately preventing our emails from reaching some members so we do encourage you to both check your spam and configure your spam filter to allow emails from our domain. Should you have any general questions about this or about any club offering, please feel free to contact us at MemberServices@LakeshoreSF.com.
Our Next Summer Party is August 26th from 2-4PM
Summer Member parties are back at Lakeshore! Join us for fun, games and music from the “Matt Stedman Band & Ring of Music Orchestra” on Sunday, August 26th from 2–4pm on the rooftop!

There will be food served for the little ones on the kids’ side of the roof and an adult offering at Harvest including beer and wine. Come on out and enjoy a slice of Chicago summer on the rooftop at Lakeshore! Please pre-register any guests that you might want to bring with Membership@LakeshoreSF.com.
Free Childcare if you are Dining at Harvest!
Looking for a date night or some drinks with friends? For members and non-members who are dining and drinking at our amazing Harvest restaurant, childcare is free! For two hours your child will explore our materials, play outside, dance, do arts and crafts, listen to music and socialize with friends.

Childcare Spotlight – Story Time With Mr. Brian
Mr. Brian has been a fixture in our child care center for a few years now. Every morning Brian leads our kiddo’s in story time. The kids tend to stop what they are doing and listen very intently to the stories of the day. Brian is very animated and engaging and the children are always very excited to participate. What makes the experience here a Lakeshore so amazing for children and families is staff members, like Brian, whose passion for children show in all they do here. As part of our daily program we include music classes twice a week, Art’s and Crafts, Story time, Outside time, structured and unstructured physical activities and of course free play.
