Kayak & Paddleboard Camp
If you love water and are looking for an adventure, this camp is for you! In partnership with Gear ReSource, you will get to kayak local lakes, the Cannon River, use stand-up paddleboards on the Faribault reservoir, and have fun splashing around at Alexander Park. We’ll learn water safety skills and paddling techniques. Space is limited, so sign up early! (Additional $16 fee required for kayak rental)
Archery & Fishing Camp
Get outdoors and challenge yourself this week as we visit local watering holds for the best fishing and take aim at archery! This week is packed with not just learning the basics, but also developing new techniques, improving your target accuracy, gaining outdoor wilderness skills, and even designing your own bait for catching fish. This week is in partnership with the Northfield Outdoorsmen Club. All equipment provided.
