Send a Kid to Camp

In Minnesota, heading off to summer camp is a long held tradition. But, for many families, camp is simply not attainable due to expense and location. The Three Rivers Park District Foundation is working hard to make sure that every kid can experience summer camp by bringing Explorer Camps directly to neighborhoods where it is needed most. The Foundation also provides free registration so that all kids can enjoy the benefits of being outdoors and learning new skills.

New this year, $5 from every adult race registration goes towards the Three Rivers Park District Foundation's summer camp fund. When you register, consider giving an additional tax deductible contribution:

  • $25 sends a kid to camp for one day
  • $50 Provides a day at Explore Camp for two kids
  • $125 sends one kid to camp for a week
  • $150 provides transportation to camp for kids
