Free Summer Camp for Venture Students!
East Side Neighborhood Services offers a FREE camp for all Venture Students. Camp starts June 18th and goes until August 2nd. Hours are 9-4 Monday-Thursday. Mornings will be spent doing engaging academic work focused on STEM and Literacy. Afternoons we will have many enrichment options like cooking, gardening, music, and outdoor activities. Each Thursday students will go on a field trip. Trips include a Twins Game, 2 days of camping with Wilderness Inquiry, and Jim Lupiet Water Park. Students are expected to attend at least four of the six weeks. A bus will provide pick up from South Minneapolis and an ESNS Van will provide pick up from North/Northeast if AT LEAST 8 students sign up for it. We also provide bus passes for students taking public transit.
