    1. We have to agree, Oliver! We’ve worked hard to gather these resources an we think their are some great opportunities here.

  1. Looking camp for an active 7-year-old girl. She would love if it included a variety of physical activities — swim, dance, gymnastics – but also some learning and art time. Thank you!!

    1. Hi Brooke:

      Our individual Summer Camp Guides are set up by location, with sections for Minneapolis/St. Paul, North Metro, South Metro, East Metro and West Metro. We also have sections for camps with multiple Twin Cities locations and sleep-away camps that are further out of the metro area. I hope you find the perfect camp near your home!

  3. Are you aware of any summer camps for todders? My daughter will be 2 this summer and we are looking for some outdoor programs for kids her age.

  4. Is there a way to sort between overnight camps and just day camps? For some of us who don’t reside in the Twin Cities any longer, overnights just make more sense in the search. Love what you all do!!!

    1. That is a good idea, Brady. We’ll see if we can add a link for just overnight camp. Currently, we do not have a lot of overnight options and the choices we do have tend to be outside the Twin Cities – Camp Pillsbury, Girl Scouts River Valleys and Tamahay Camp for Girls all offer overnight options. You can find links to all three of these camps in our 2021 Summer Camp Guide Sponsors list at the bottom of this main page.

  5. Hi. Lindsey.

    I’m sorry that our forms aren’t working properly. Gianna is in the process of fixing the problem. I will email you.
