Summer Camps

Lifelong memories are made at summer camp! There are camps for kids ages 4–15 on topics including nature exploration, outdoor recreation, golf, fishing, farming, art and Minnesota history. Campers will gain an appreciation for nature while making new friends and memories. Summer camps are available at the Baker Outdoor Learning Center, The Landing, Gale Woods Farm, nature and visitor centers, and golf facilities.

COVID-19 Updates

Based on recommendations from the Minnesota Department of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Camp Association, we will be able to provide some camps this summer. Making necessary staffing and operational adjustments will take time, so we are canceling all camps through June 14. We are not taking new summer camp registrations at this time.

We will send out updates and changes to camp schedules in the coming weeks. We appreciate your patience as we've waited for more detailed guidance from the experts, and we look forward to bringing camps back to our parks this summer. 

Registration

We are not taking new summer camp registrations at this time.

Dates, times and fees vary. Reservations must be received at least two weeks in advance.

To ensure a smooth registration process:

  • Log on to your account to verify that your household information is up-to-date, with a birth date filled out.
  • Have information about your child ready, including food allergies, medications, emergency contact information, health concerns, and any other conditions that may affect participation.

Financial assistance from The Wonder Fund or The First Tee is available for qualified individuals. Three Rivers is committed to accommodating campers with disabilities. Please indicate any special needs when making reservations.

Cancellation And Transfer Policy

Cancellations or transfers made at least 30 days in advance are 80 percent refundable. Cancellations or transfers made less than 30 days prior to the start date are not refundable. Programs take place rain or shine. If a program is cancelled by park staff, you will be notified and a full refund or credit will be issued upon request.
