Some of the best time to experience the Minnesota wilderness is the hours leading up to twilight! Our Evening Adventures are hour to hour-and-a-half programs that vary due to weather and the interest of our groups.
Twilight Canoeing - The name sort of says it all! Weather permitting, you will be given the opportunity to head off to Hidden Lake, a small lake near camp, to silent canoe. Deer, beaver, turtles, birds and other wildlife are often seen. There is always the possibility of seeing a fox or bear!
Frog/Toad Hunts - If we have a particularly wet week, the frogs are out in large numbers. Search for Wood Frogs, Leopard Frogs and Spring Peepers. We often see tadpoles and American Toads too.
Fort Building - Out in our woods are four forts that were started by our staff and continue to be added on to by our students! Spend some time adding rooms or features to the already existing structures.
Group Games - Playtime in the great outdoors! Large group games of Capture the Flag, 3-Goal Soccer, Quidditch, Bashball or Ultimate Frisbee are organized as well as smaller tag games or relays.
Campfires - Sit around the campfire and learn great camp songs while listening to stories and hearing the sounds of nature!
Lakeshore Exploration - Roll up you pants, grab a bucket and net and head out along the shores of Whitefish Lake in search of Dragonfly larva, Crayfish, Minnows and anything else you can find. If you catch smaller fish or bugs, feed them to one of our Camp Foley turtles!
100 Inch Hunt - Measure out a 100-inch square on the ground, kneel down and see what you can find! Bugs, worms, plants, whatever! If you catch bugs or worms, feed them to one of the turtles!
Team Hotdog- Enjoy a hotdog meal outside at one of our campfire sites. We throw some twists at you too!
