In 2022, our organization coordinated and facilitated a series of summer activities in partnership with schools, community organizations/institutions. Forty-one families participated in this program. Some of the activities included:
A 3-day camping trip at Carver Park Reserve, fieldtrips to the Minnesota Zoo and the Science Museum, and a canoeing Fieldtrip at Hidden Falls Regional Park. For most of these families this was the first time they had the opportunity to participate at this type of experiences. They developed and/or increased team-building skills, mental and physical health, their knowledge and appreciation for nature/the environment, healthy life-style (including physical activity and learning how to relax and disconnect from technology).
