Fall Outdoor Education at Foley

You may or may not be aware that 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!

This week we welcome our Fall Schools at our Outdoor Education Center! As we open this week we
are excited to welcome the 5th Graders from Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa (BBE) Public School. We are pumped to have kids back in Camp! Follow along with their adventures on our Environmental Instagram account HERE.
