  • by

If you are deciding on where to send your kids to summer camp this year then here are some great reasons why parents and campers alike chose Camp Pillsbury over other summer camps for kids.  Our summer camp in Minnesota is located in Owatonna which has a nice small town appeal and great local events.  The natural beauty of the Minnesota countryside is definitely a plus but didn’t make it on the top five list but definitely needs to be acknowledged. 

5. Rain or Shine, Summer Camp Fun Will Continue at Camp Pillsbury

Camp Pillsbury Gymnasium - Summer Camps for KidsAt many traditional camps, if there is bad weather many activities are cancelled.  At Camp Pillsbury, we have a large gymnasium with modern sports, circus and gymnastic equipment.  The campus also boasts a fully equipped theater and other performance stages so the practice and show always goes on.   And when the weather is good we have plenty of outdoor activities to get campers outside and having fun.  With our soccer field, lake side access, horse stable access, circus arts area and local tennis courts, it is no wonder campers choose Camp Pillsbury over traditional summer camps for kids.  So no matter what kinds of weather comes during our summers, the campers are always enjoying themselves.

4. Campers Get to Shine on Performance Days

Campers on Performance Day - Summer Camps for KidsAt the end of every two week session at Camp Pillsbury, the campers have a performance day. This is when local residents, other campers and if possible, family can watch what they have learned. Being able to perform in front of a live audience after all their practice can really booster their confidence. Many campers say they love to show off what they have learned and is a factor in why they choose Camp Pillsbury over other summer camps for kids. Campers also get to do live performance at two of the local events during the summer. Not only do they get to enjoy the festivities at the Owatonna Crazy Day Festival and Steele County Fair but they also perform on their own stage during these events for local residents!

3. Adventure Days and Local Event Trips are a Favorite with Campers

2. Elegantly Beautiful and Historical Campus with Modern Facilities

1. Campers get to Choose Their Summer Camp Programs

Collage of Activities - Summer Camp for KidsDrum roll, please! The number one reason campers and parents alike choose Camp Pillsbury over other summer camps for kids is because of the diversity of the summer camp programs.  Campers get to choose which elective summer camp activities they will participate in during their stay.  Every day at Camp Pillsbury is broken down into six one hour periods.  At the beginning of camp, campers pick 3 majors that they will participate in at the same time and with the same staff and campers daily.   Then each day they can pick 3 minors from the ones available to be able to try new and exciting activities.  This gives campers the ability to try new things while strengthening existing interests while having a great time.
