Making Memories at Base Camp in 2017

Base Camp Celebrated a terrific year, be a part of it

Last year Base Camp provided new and exciting experiences to a lot of groups! We had: city parks, Scouts, schools, churches, bar mitzvahs, athletes, bankers, construction workers, professional wrestlers, and many more. All of these groups brought happiness to our staff, as they too were able to experience new and exciting things while educating and helping others! We want you to be a part of creating the amazing memories that will come in 2017.

Here is what Base Camp Program Director, David Donovan, had to say when we talked to him about 2016.

"October was a record month for field trips, as we welcomed 800 students from four different schools in the first week alone!"

And he is right! we provide programs to a ton of youth!

What's up in 2017?

We asked David to tell us about programs in 2016, and what to look forward to this year.

"2016 included some first-ever programs that we look forward to carrying into the new year - such as Base Camp's First Annual Backyard Campout, our very own youth summer day camp, and brand new monthly preschool series."
  • Scouts- Spend the night with a Lock-In, or host a Blue and Gold banquet.
  • Toddlers- Have a blast at Pre-K Days.
  • Homeschool- Make a program reservation with your group, or check out our Homeschool Days.
  • Adults- Schedule your next company event with Base Camp to make it one you won't forget.
  • Summer Campers- Check out Discovery Day Camp for a great 5-days this summer.
  • Everyone Else- Call us at 612-767-0042. We've got a program for you!

Challenge your comfort zone

Many youth, and adults, conquered our rock wall this year, climbed our high ropes course, and hit the target on our archery range. Other groups took bike tours, built shelters, and assembled robots. Will you be the next Base Camp Champion? *insert highlands elem picture*

Bigger and Better

There is a whole lot coming to our campus soon. With the take-down of our outdoor towers comes awesome plans for new climbing elements and an amazing leadership facility.

Every year Base Camp improves our Youth Program Catalog. Be sure to check it out at www.explorebasecamp.org/forms
