Apostle Islands National Shoreline ICE CAVES

Join Continuing Education with Vic Passante on another


The ICE CAVES in the Apostle Islands National Shoreline.


Any year that the conditions are safe for people to take the mile hike from Meyers Beach to the Ice Caves, the caves have drawn a crowd. The average count is 10,000. Last year was the first time in five years that the caves were accessible, and the site attracted 138,000!

If you’re like me, you were envious of anyone who had the opportunity to experience last winter’s phenomenon.

We have JUST learned that the National Park Service will make “the call” by Wednesday, Feb. 25th as to whether or not the Ice Caves will be open on March 1…we think/hope they will.

 Let’s plan on it.

We’re planning the Continuing Education trip for SUNDAY, MARCH 1.

If you are interested in a DAY TRIP departing from UW-Waukesha campus at 6:00 AM and returning at 11:30 PM,

please email us or call the office 262.521.5460 and get your name on the reservation list.

  • We know it appears impulsive to plan so close to the date, but let’s be spontaneous and take advantage of the opportunity.
  • We know that it’s 12 hours on a bus for three hours of BEAUTY….but don’t lose sight of THE BEAUTY!
  • We know it’s bitter cold out there, but let’s look winter straight in the eye and say, “We can kick your butt!”

The trip includes Coach USA transportation, a “dinner-to-go” from Sauce Restaurant in Washburn, snacks and movies on the bus, an educational packet, and admission to the park.(See the attached itinerary.)

The price of the trip with 20 people will be $195.00. If we get 25 people, the price drops to $172.00 and if 30 people register, the price will be $145.00.

Beautiful: The Carol King Musical


 Continuing Education understands that music can underscore your life. Last summer, we brought you to the tuneful and entertaining Motown: the Musical. Next December we continue to feature your life’s soundtrack with BEAUTIFUL: The Carole King Musical.  

Beautiful is the true story of King's remarkable rise to stardom, from being part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history.

“So Far Away,” “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow,” “It’s Too Late,” “You’ve Got a Friend,” and nearly 20 other hits will keep you humming familiar tunes for weeks after the curtain closes. Join C.E. for another beautiful opportunity to see Broadway musicals with your friends. You will not want to miss this one!
