Camps

Campers have fun while gaining appreciation for nature by meeting live animals, building forts, and getting their hands dirty.

Summer camps are canceled.

After careful consideration and with the health and safety of our campers and staff at the core of our decision making, Dodge Nature Center has made the difficult decision to cancel all currently planned 2020 summer camps. Based on the Minnesota Department of Health’s guidelines on COVID-19 and the number of campers registered, we cannot conduct these camps safely.

All families will receive a full refund. It may take up to two weeks to receive your refund, so we appreciate your patience during this time. We continue to review options for providing summer environmental education programming and will keep you updated. Check the homepage, social media, and your email for information.
