Resources for Youth
The UWCA program creates great adventures for youth. We provide all the equipment you need. No experience necessary.
We offer both day trips and overnight camping trips. Day trips generally are a four-and-a-half hour guided paddle down the Mississippi River, complete with hands-on activities and interpretation by National Park Service rangers. Overnight trips take place at many regional and state parks in the heart of the Twin Cities Metro Area and include paddling and place-based environmental education.
Gain leadership skills and work outdoors this summer! The UWCA offers dozens of internships for high school and college students. Check out our employment page for more information.
