Happy Dancing Turtle in Pine River to host camping trips to teach girls to love the outdoors
Two trips are planned for girls in grades two through eight.
PINE RIVER — Happy Dancing Turtle is offering two overnight camping experiences for girls in second through eighth grades.
Through the trips, or “Turtle Treks,” girls will have the opportunity to experience the ins and outs of camping while building friendships and enjoying time outdoors.
Girls taking part in Turtle Treks will learn vital camping skills, like how to set up a tent, how to start and cook over a fire, and Leave No Trace responsibilities.
“We learn about Minnesota’s land, water, plants, animals and the night sky while exploring state parks and other beautiful sites in our great state,” Program Coordinator Michelle Hoefs said in a news release.
The Turtle Trek for girls entering fifth through eighth grades in fall 2022 is July 12-14 at Itasca State Park.
The trip for girls entering second through fourth grades in fall 2022 will be Aug. 17-18 at Sand Lake property in Pine River.
