SUMMERTIME ADVENTURE IN THREE RIVERS PARK DISTRICT:

SUMMER CAMP REGISTRATION BEGINS JANUARY 13, 2014

 

There’s snow outside, but it is not too early to plan for summer! Registration for summer camps in Three Rivers Park District begins January 13, 2014. Send your children on a fun-filled adventure this summer in Three Rivers Park District, where they will gain an appreciation for nature while participating in hands-on recreational, nature and cultural heritage programs.

Can’t afford to send your child to an expensive, faraway overnight camp this year? No problem. Three Rivers offers affordable day camps for children ages 4-15 that are conveniently located just minutes from your home. Camp topics include nature exploration, outdoor recreation, golfing, fishing, farming, and Minnesota history. Camps are offered at our nature and visitor centers, golf facilities, The Landing - Minnesota River Heritage Park, and Gale Woods Farm.

Children must be in the age group indicated for each camp. Camp dates, times and fees vary.  Reservations, pre-payment and health waiver are due at least two weeks in advance of camp starting date; early reservations are recommended.

Three Rivers Park District is committed to serving people with disabilities. Please indicate any special needs at the time of reservation. Scholarships are available for qualified individuals. 

For more information on the camps being offered this year, please visit: http://www.threeriversparks.org/events/Groups/summer-camps.aspx or call 763-559-6700 to register.
