Youth Programs

Come along with YP for a summer of full-day, in-person programming. Opportunities to participate will fall within our traditional topic areas (Minnesota Sport SchoolsKids’ UniversityDiscovering ‘U’, and Gopher Adventures) and the Learn To: Climbing Club program. 

All youth camp sessions typically include swimming and indoor rock climbing in addition to hands-on activities, themed projects, arts & crafts, and recreational games. Our Minnesota Sport SchoolsKids’ University, and Discovering ‘U’ programs feature 2.5-3 hours of instruction on a variety of topics including sports, art, natural sciences, and technology. Our Learn To: Climbing Club meets on select evenings each week to give youth the opportunity to explore the sport of rock climbing. Regardless of your child's interests, there is something for everyone!

Registration for Summer 2023 Camps will open Monday, February 13, 2023 at 6:00am.
