MINNESOTA CAMPS Registration Opens December 2019

Good-Bye Screens, Hello Outdoors

There are endless opportunities for outdoor adventure in Minnesota but finding the time, having the right equipment and encouraging your kids to try new things isn’t always easy. That’s where we come in. At Avid4 Adventure, we get your kids off the couch, away from screens and into the great outdoors. Using time-tested curriculum, our experienced outdoor educators empower your kids to bike, hike and paddle in local Minneapolis recreation areas they—and you—can return to for life. Kids leave with a deeper appreciation for the outdoors and the confidence and technical skills they need to choose an outdoor lifestyle. Once camp is over, your kids will be begging you to get back outside—and they’ll probably want to teach you all of the new skills they’ve learned, too.

"One of the most incredible things about kids is their hardwired willingness to try new things. But as they approach their teens, that enviable disposition starts to diminish, worn away by feelings of self-consciousness or self-doubt. Avid4 Adventure awakens that innate try-new-things mentality, creating an environment that makes it comfortable and fun for kids of all ages—even tweens—to try something new."

"The photos on our website of kids engaging in incredible adventures might cause families to think Avid4 Adventure is only for super-athletic kids. The truth is, many of the kids that attend our camps every year start out very tentative about participating in those adventures. That was certainly the case for Madison, who, before camp, was too intimidated even to join the kids in her neighborhood on their bikes."

"Last summer, Meredith Smith signed her 5-year-old son Graham up for Avid4 Adventure's multi-sport Explorer Camp in Highlands Ranch on a recommendation from a friend. She kept expectations for her first-time camper realistic: "to have fun doing some new activities, make some friends and enjoy the Colorado summer." What she didn't expect was for him to like—or even participate in—the mountain biking portion of the week."
