Field Trips

Our Summer Campers also get to enjoy field trips as part of their “best summer ever!” If you attend camp on the day your group takes a field trip, you must attend the field trip as well. Each field trip will have an additional cost, but with trips like the Skatin’ Place, Summerland, Great River Bowl and more, we are sure they will thank you later! Please check the 2018 Summer Camp Registration form for a full list of all field trips.
