I Can Camp!

I Can Camp! has ended for the season.
Check back in the spring for the 2015 schedule!

Camping has a way of bringing out the happy in kids. So, how does a parent who's more comfortable with computers than campfires get started? A one- or two-night I Can Camp! overnight program is your chance to introduce your kids to the fun of camping—no experience necessary!

  • Hands-on instruction on setting up camp, camp cooking and more from our experienced I Can Camp! crew.
  • Use of tent, air mattresses, cook stove and other gear.
  • Geocaching, nature photography, fishing—each program offers unique activities.

Our I Can Camp! crew will be on hand day and night to answer all of your "how do I do it?" questions. They'll walk you through setting up a campsite, starting a campfire and preparing delicious, yet simple, meals. You'll be introduced to activities that will entertain the whole family. One-night programs are $40; two-night programs are $60 (up to six people per tent). A Minnesota State Parks one-day permit is included. Advance registration is required.
