Here’s a chance to get 10-13 year olds out of the house this summer. Send them to Urban Wilderness Camp to explore the public forests and creeks of Duluth and Superior. Sign up for the location closest to you for drop off and pick up. This year, camps will be at Lester Park, Lower Chester Park, Fairmont Park and Billings Park. Find more information and register at hartleynature.org, or call 218-365-6537. Warning: kids may come home wet and dirty.
Duluth’s Urban Wilderness Camp is open for registration. We take small groups of kids (10-12 years old) into Duluth’s public forests and explore local treasures. This summer, we have camps at Fairmont Park (by the zoo), Lower Chester Park, and Lester Park.
Each camp runs Monday through Thursday, 9-3:30. We do things like swim in local creeks, search for crayfish, find agates, safely eat wild plants and berries, explore forests and creeks, play disc golf and capture the flag, make up games, paddle canoes, fish, cook over fires, tie knots, set up tarps, ride the city bus, hike on the Superior Hiking Trail, bike on the Munger Trail, paddle canoes, work and play as a team, and take care of our local urban wilderness. Each day, we have healthy snacks provided by Duluth’s Whole Foods Co-op!
