Let's SleepOut for Shelter!  It's fantastic that you are looking to help end homelessness in Lake County - and we can have some fun while we work to that noble goal.

Once again, we are excited to hold the SleepOut at Six Flags Great America!  Participants will be able to enjoy time at the park all for a great cause.

Participants will spend the night IN THE PARK, and will have EXCLUSIVE RIDE TIME after hours!  That means NO LINES!!! 

Ride your favorite rides in Southwest Territory over and over again during the ride time, including Justice League: Battle for Metropolis, Raging Bull and Giant Drop!


Proceeds from the event go towards supporting the vital programs and services that PADS Lake County provides to the scores of men, women, and children experiencing homelessness in our community.

SleepOut for Shelter is an experience and fundraiser designed to:
  1. give participants a small sense of what it would feel like to be homeless by sleeping outside
  2. bring attention to an issue that most people rarely think about
By participating, you are agreeing to the following:
  1. sleep outside for merely one night, raising awareness and funds - so that others are not forced to ever sleep outside.
  2. raise a minimum of $100 per person.  By doing so, you will receive a ticket to the park! 
    • Chaperones attending with up to 4 youth (under 18) must raise a minimum of $50, and will also get a ticket to the park.
