The River Bend Nature Center in Faribault is offering several summer camp sessions this Summer. They will start the week of June 11th and continue through the week of August 24th. These camps are for kids entering preschool through 8th grade and have both half-day and full day camps available.

There are several different options to choose from, including "Nature Safari" and "Water Warriors." Kids can learn new skills, and build on existing ones. I was skimming through the different camps offered, and saw that there is a Counselor in Training type of camp, where the campers will also learn leadership skills and how to be a role model for younger campers.

This is a very close drive, and a great way to get the camp experience locally. It's worth checking out, and they offer need-based scholarships to help offset the cost. For more information, you can check out their website, stop by the Interpretive Center during business hours, or call 507-332-7151.
