Camp U Club
With the summer months come a flurry of outdoor activities for our younger members. Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to noon, Camp U Club is in full swing with programming including: the children's summer reading program, dive-in movies, field trips, various sports, board games, a garden, and an arts and crafts program. In addition to its morning offerings, the club hosts Friday Night Weenie Roasts, with complimentary s'mores and hot dogs poolside for children and their families.
The arts and crafts program provides a variety of fun and educational events throughout the summer, infusing the arts into core curricular subject matter such as science, history, language, culture, and mathematics. The arts and crafts program is headed up by students majoring in the Teaching Artist Program at the College of Visual Arts in St. Paul, all of whom have at least two years' experience teaching in local public schools, community centers, or inner-city youth programs. In addition to the visual arts, the kids are introduced to other artistic media such as martial arts, dance, gymnastics, music, and language arts.

Stouts Island Lodge Camping Trip
In August, the club's younger demographic is invited on the very popular camping trip to Stout's Island Lodge (www.stoutsislandlodge.net
