Loppet Summer Adventure Camps

Weeklong Summer Day Camps for Kids Age 9-13

Let the summer adventure begin!

At Loppet Summer Adventure Camp youth spend their days diving into a world of non-stop outdoor fun. Kids break into small groups with enthusiastic counselors and rotate through different activities throughout the day.

  • Mountain biking
  • Orienteering
  • Swimming and canoeing
  • Capture-the-flag, Ultimate Frisbee, and other games
  • Nature activities
  • Creative crafts
  • Archery

Time: Camps run from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm.

Location: Theodore Wirth Park – Meet at The Trailhead at 1221 Theodore Wirth Parkway and activities happen throughout the Park.

Equipment: All equipment is provided, though campers are welcome to bring their own bikes, helmets, etc.

Cost: Coming soon! Please be sure to finalize other summer plans and confirm schedules before registering, as registration and transaction fees are nonrefundable, including in the event of cancellation. Registration is not transferable to another person or another event for any reason, including injury.

Scholarships: Scholarships are available. Please contact us at campdirector@loppet.org for details.

If your child is interested in pursuing year-round development opportunities in skiing, mountain biking, orienteering and trail running, we encourage you to check out the Loppet TRAIL KIDS Program.

Please ensure your child will be 9 years or older on the first day of camp, or they will not be allowed to participate. Registration will open March 8.

A Note About the Data We Collect

When are pick up and drop off times for camp?

Drop-offs usually arrive from around 8:45 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Campers get picked up shortly after 4:00 p.m.

What happens if it rains?

IF rain/weather will interfere with normal camp activities, Adventure Camp will run from 9:00 – 4:00 at The Trailhead at Theodore Wirth Park. If rain/weather will make outside activities unsafe, Adventure Camp will cancel for the day (this is rare!).

Emails to parents will be sent out to parents the morning of any day where normal camp activities will be changed to notify them of the plan. Please check your emails regularly!

Does my child need to bring their own bike?

No, but if your child has equipment that they want to use, they are welcome to bring it to camp. Overnight storage of bikes will not be available.

Does my child need to bring a swimsuit?

Yes. Swimming is an Adventure Camp favorite — as is learning how to rescue a canoe when you tip over!

Is lunch provided, or should my child pack and bring their own lunch?

Campers should plan on bringing their own lunch/snacks.

The Loppet will issue a full refund of the program fee minus the original processing fee up until 6 weeks before the program starts. Between 6 weeks and 4 weeks from the program start date, a 50% refund will be issued. Between 4 and 3 weeks from the program start date, a 25% refund will be issued. There are no refunds for any cancellations within less than 3 weeks of the start of a program. During the program, if your child has a medical issue that makes it impossible to participate, we will issue a prorated refund minus the processing fee. If the Loppet cancels a program, a full refund will be issued. For instructions on how to request a refund, click here.
