Wee Backpackers Learn to Swim Camp

All of the wonderful outdoor adventures in the Wee Backpacker program plus swimming lessons! Each day Wee Bees will have a 40-minute progressive swimming lesson at the Burnsville YMCA indoor pool with our certified swim instructors. Little swimmers will also have time to play in our zero depth pool. The remainder of the day will be spent enjoying traditional camp activities. A swim lesson progress card will be given at the end of the session.

Canoe/Kayak Camp

Campers learn paddling skills and canoe/kayak safety as they experience the challenge of navigating water! Kids learn to identify the parts of the canoe/kayak, paddling techniques, the importance of teamwork.
