MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA Unlimited Opportunities for Outdoor Adventure

Minneapolis Summer Day Camps

“The Land of 10,000 Lakes,” is a spectacular location for outdoor adventure. Minneapolis alone has hundreds of miles of winding trails and hundreds of acres of gleaming lakes to be explored by hiking, biking, kayaking, stand up paddleboarding and canoeing. Without the time or the right equipment though, it can be challenging to get your kids out to explore. Using these empowering adventure sports, Avid4 Adventure summer camps take K – 7th graders to some of the city’s best outdoor recreation areas helping kids build confidence and lean into positive risk taking. With help from our time-tested curriculum and experienced instructors, kids gain a deeper appreciation for the outdoors and are inspired to choose active, outdoor lifestyles.

"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."
