In the afternoons of the same week, we offer a half-day program for children who are entering 6th to 8th grades in the fall.

Participants will need to be able to understand topics of discussion with like-aged peers. If the pandemic is under sufficient control, we will have an in-person camp on the Minneapolis campus of the University of Minnesota.

There will be small group times, whole group activities, and free times when campers can alternate between activities (while adhering to COVID guidelines). Activities offered will include arts and crafts, fishing, hiking, adventure courses, giant swing, animal encounters, yoga, drama, improv, and more!
