Spring camping trip

Spring is slowly arriving and our thoughts are turning towards warm outdoor adventures!

This year’s Lab School Camping trip will be Saturday, May 12 – 13. The annual camping trip is a great way for families to connect with each other and to explore with the children together. It’s a fun opportunity to explore the outdoors and to experience an overnight trip with their families AND classmates!

There will be time to explore the campground, have dinner with other families at the group campsites, and join in for a sing- along, group bonfire and treats! In the morning we can go on a nature hike to the Mississippi River. If you wish to join in for just the dinner and the sing-along/bonfire that is an option as well.

Interested in volunteering for the camping adventure? We are looking for volunteers to help with greeting families as they arrive and find their campsites, setting up/facilitating s’mores/campfire treats, building/tending the group campfire, leading sing-along songs, purchasing supplies for campfire treats, transporting balls and other supplies from Lab School, clean up, or other camping activities you would like to share!)

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Sheila Williams Ridge at will0342@umn.edu or look for sign up information at the end of April.
