In addition to our Summer Camp Season, Foley has an Outdoor Education program that runs in the months of May and September. Foley’s Environmental Education Center is open for school groups to come for a 3-day or week-long environmental focused experience.
Much like summer camp, our environmental program has activity blocks, meals, free time, canteen, and evening programs but it is all based more on a science and nature curriculum.
In fact, Camp Foley has the 2nd longest-running Environmental Education Center in the state of Minnesota!
Last week we welcomed our only outdoor ed group for the year 2020. It definitely looked a lot different this year but we were very excited to host Holy Redeemer school from southern Minnesota. We were also pumped to have kids back in Camp! Follow along with their adventures on our Environmental Instagram account HERE.
