University of Minnesota Youth Programs

Better Together

Summer Day Camps & Climbing Clubs for Ages 6 – 16

Gopher Adventures is the base for all of our camp offerings. The emphasis is on fun, healthy activities while discovering many features of the Twin Cities campus and area.

All groups participate in indoor rock climbing, swimming, art instruction, and organized physical education curriculum, theme activities, and recreational games each week.

Gopher Adventures camps include a tour or demonstration each week. Minnesota Sport Schools, Discovering ‘U’, and Kids’ University add the instructional topics that make University Youth Programs one of the most unique programs in the Twin Cities.

These camps follow the basic structure of Gopher Adventures, except for approximately two to three hours each day spent on the specialty topic selected.

Specialty topics are led by exceptional teachers and accomplished athletes with the University, or by community specialists who bring expertise and enthusiasm to every activity.
