Camp is an opportunity in which students can learn new skills, strengthen their character, build lasting friendships, and enjoy the beautiful outdoors of Minnesota.
Going to camp is a long-standing American tradition full of fun activities including: canoeing, swimming, sports, team-building activities, challenge courses, picnics, great food, campfires, s’mores, crafts, games, and more. Kids, students, and adults cherish the warmer months when they can escape the demands of everyday life and venture out “into the wild” to experience the many wonders that nature has to offer.
Last year Camp Iduhapi hosted SPP students and staff for a successful 2012 camp retreat.
We look forward to our overnight stay at Camp Courage in Maple Lake, MN on September 4-5.
Packing suggestions for camp:
Pack light – it’s only one night. Students should pack their personal items in a backpack and not in a suitcase due to space on the bus. Be prepared for the weather – activities will take place rain or shine, hot or cold.
Blankets & sheets or a sleeping bag (ask your host family if you can borrow theirs), Sunscreen, Insect repellent, Towel & wash cloth, Toiletries (shampoo, soap, toothbrush, etc.), 2 pairs of shoes (one that can get wet), Weather appropriate clothing (pack an extra sweatshirt), Water bottle, Flashlight, Pillow, Swimsuit, Hat (optional)
“Camp was a really great way for us to know our new classmates. I really thought it was cool.” – SPP Student
