Family Camps

Family Summer Camp

Love vacationing as a family? How about something that combines an outdoorsy experience with a warm meal, a place to rest your head, and many different activities for you and yours? All you need to pack is your sense of adventure and an excitement to learn. Family Summer Camp has a great mix of family and age-based activities – perfect for everyone!

Family Sampler – Summer

A shorter version of our week-long Family Camp. Perfect for a worry-free get-way. We take care of the cooking so you and yours can explore and enjoy the lakes, rivers, and trails with our naturalist-guided activities. Cozy up in the MAC Lodge after an adventure-filled day making memories.

Family Samplers – Winter

Discover the joys of winter while skiing through the crisp snow, peering into a frozen lake through a dark house, snowshoeing to a spectacular view of Lake Superior and dog sledding through freshly fallen snow. Ring in the New Year with new friends at the Family Folk Dance and Celebration.

Grandparent and Grandchild Grand Adventure

Grandparent/grandchild programs are designed for grandparents and their grandchildren (ages 6-11.) What’s more rewarding than passing on your love of lifelong learning and being outdoors? Teaching a younger adventurer to love it, too. Share your passion for the outdoors with a grandchild and create memories that will last for a lifetime.

Family Wilderness Trips

There’s exploring the trails near your house. Then there’s exploring the great outdoors in a setting you can’t find anywhere else. From the Boundary Waters to Split Rock and the Apostle Islands, our Wilderness Trips provide adventure for families who love to be outdoors together.
