Experience Your Dream Summer!
Camp Pillsbury offers multiple session options for sleep-away camp beginning June 11th to August 20th with an extraordinary variety of activities, opportunity and adventures that culminates in our end-of-sessions showcases, exhibits, presentations and visiting day for parents.
Camp Pillsbury is located 45 minutes from Minneapolis, Minnesota in the town of Owatonna. Campers receive an individualized program with traditional and “not so traditional” summer camp activities for boys and girls ages 6-17.
The Camp is set on the campus of Pillsbury College Prep and Camp which is also our year-round camp/boarding school for students from 6th through 12th grade. This is specifically for those campers who love Camp Pillsbury and other camps so much they want to stay year round. Through the winter months, Pillsbury is a nationally accredited private school with outstanding academic standards.
Our staff is a combination of experienced professionals and college students that have been hand selected for their particular expertise. All staff maintain a safe and nurturing environment while at the same time providing the best available training, coaching and directing, to support each child. In addition to our fantastic and experienced staff at Camp Pillsbury, we will frequently bring in guests who are at the top of their field for ELITE CLASSES with our campers. Such guests include Olympic Gold Medalists, Sports Celebrities, Actors, Musicians and Entrepreneurs.
The programs and classes we offer put an emphasis on activities that today’s kids enjoy. Camp Pillsbury offers Circus, Music, Theater, Dance, Visual/Fine Arts, Technology/Digital Arts & Multimedia, Team Sports, Individual Sports, Magic, Water Sports, Extreme Sports, Horseback Riding, Orchestra, Band, Vocal Ensembles, Cheer, Gymnastics, Mountain Biking, Chess, Creative Writing, Role Playing Games, Archery, Fitness, Weights, Yoga, Zumba and much more.
Our fully elective program allows campers to select all of their favorite activities and to also try new ones within our established daily schedule. Campers have the opportunity to develop existing skills and explore new interests. Every program and activity is open to all age groups and all skill levels where we meet each child’s individual needs and respect their individuality.
Our day is comprised of six one-hour periods: three Majors and three Minors. Majors are taken at the same time each day with the same staff and campers and are activities that each camper has chosen to learn more about, get better at, and be in the end-of-session showcase or exhibit. Campers choose three Minors each day that they can try once, or repeat as often as they like. This allows campers plenty of opportunity to try new activities they have experienced before.
Campers thrive, building on existing interests and developing new ones. They flourish and excel in the areas they become passionate about and, their self-confidence soars. They become better singers, dancers, actors, athletes, artists, musicians and even students. We guarantee they will love camp so much they’ll ask to stay all year – and they can. Just ask, we will accommodate you!
