Turtle Treks To Finish the Summer in Pine River

After two successful camping trips to Lake Bemidji and the North Shore,  the Stewardship & Sustainability gals are focusing on one more overnight trip, albeit a lot more close to home.

On Monday, August 28, your 2nd-4th grader will be able to join in the fun at Forbes Park, right here in Pine River. We’ll be organizing games and swimming ventures, showcasing camping skills, and whipping together a real campfire dinner.

We’ll tell campfire stories and sleep under the stars. In the morning we’ll cook a real outdoors breakfast, break down camp, and send the kids home. This is a perfect opportunity for those unsure of camping. Who know’s, they may become campers for life!

Plus, where our last two overnights were for girls only, this Trek is for everyone! You can register online or download the printable registration form.

Here’s a look at some of the fun the last two Treks had this summer:

Lake Bemidji

We played Hide N Seek…poorly.


Hang drying the plates is a great way to do the dishes.


You can’t go to Bemidji without visiting Paul and Babe.


Fun was had along Lake Bemidji


Swimming, geocaching, and canoeing filled the day!


North Shore – Gooseberry Falls, Split Rock Lighthouse

There was plenty of time for exploring the shore.


The gals had a blast.


Gooseberry Falls was a place for rock climbing and swimming.


Friends were found.


Rain didn’t slow down the campers.


The Split Rock Lighthouse was a blast.
