Youth Programs offers recreation activities infused with educational experiences for children of the University community. All Youth Programs are designed to encourage discovery and personal growth, while exposing children to the University of Minnesota.
Summer Youth Programs are structured as fun and informative day camps for ages 5-15. Specialty instruction in the categories of Kids' University, Minnesota Sport Schools, and Discovering 'U' is combined with daily recreational activities, while Gopher Adventures focuses purely on fun, recreational camp experiences. All camps feature rock climbing, swimming, high quality facilities, and energetic staff to create a summer like no other. Click here to view more.
