Outdoor Adventures

Are you outdoorsy? We asked Project Success staff what they like to do when they get outside in the fall and here is what some of them had to say…

Our Project Success staff love to get outdoors, no matter the weather or time of year. Watch all of our “Getting Outdoors” videos, filmed through the seasons!

Boundary Waters Canoe Adventure 2022 

This past June, we took nearly 200 6th, 7th and 8th grade students from Minneapolis Public Middle Schools to the BWCA for a canoe adventure in Minnesota’s pristine wilderness! This week-long experience supports our programming by inspiring students to set goals, practice support and experience success in the most beautiful setting in Minnesota. Students spent every day paddling canoes on beautiful lakes, hiking wooded trails and moving through the wilderness each day to get to a new campsite. There was also plenty of time for making new friends, swimming, looking for animals, laughing, exploring, singing and bonding with fellow campers! To read more about summer 2022’s BWCA experience, amongst other Outdoor Adventure programs, check out this blog post!

Apostle Islands Kayak Adventure!

In July, Project Success partnered with Wilderness Inquiry to provide an accessible outdoor adventure for MPS middle school students. This trip was designed to help students who might require extra support to access and enjoy outdoor recreational activities.  Eight amazing young students joined us in the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore where we kayaked through sea caves and over shipwrecks in Lake Superior and hiked beautiful wooded trails in the area along the south shore.
