Camp Pillsbury is a great place for children to develop their passions, learn new skills and make new friends. Camp Pillsbury is a place that is designed to create happy memories, and encourage kids to try new things that they can't do in everyday life.

Majors are taken at the same time each day with the same staff and campers and is an activity that each camper has chosen to learn more about, get better at and be in the end of session show or exhibition. 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 never been exposed to before.

Campers thrive, building on existing interests and developing new ones. They flourish and excel in the areas they become passionate about and self-confidence soars. They become better singers, dancers, actors, athletes, artists, and musicians.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Active Learning Services, Ltd operates enrichment programs designed to stimulate creative thinking, improve thinking, logic and memory skills and give children "thinking alternatives" to sports camps and other summer programs. Our programs include chess programs and camps thru USA Chess, Our Gamebuilder Video Game Creation Programs and our Active Learning Computer Enrichment Programs.

Our staff is, comprised of the best children's chess instructors in North America! The USA Chess camps are uniquely qualified to cater to the needs of the advanced scholastic player as well as the true beginner. USA Chess hit its first milestone in the summer of 2000 producing the largest chess camp ever held in the United States, with more than 250 students enrolled. What was most surprising, however, was the amount of absolute beginners in attendance - more than 50% of the total enrollment was just starting to play chess. This realization led to the national rollout tour of 100 camps in more than 70 cities. The annual tours have been immensely successful with several thousand campers attending this year alone.

USA Chess thrives on providing a structured environment that is extremely conducive to learning chess. We handpick the best children's chess instructors from all over the United States and bring them to each camp. We believe our team is most effective in teaching chess to children of all ages and levels. The exceptional organization and ever-fun curriculum has fueled much interest from scholastic players and coaches from around the country, prompting them to request USA Chess camps in their areas.

At the same summer camp locations, we also offer the immensely popular Gamebuilder Video Game Creation Camps, The Active Learning Computer Animation Programs, and other Computer Enrichment Programs such as Modding, Networking and Hosting with Minecraft. We now offer seven unique programs in all.

At these camps, children are assigned a computer for the week; they spend the week learning to create their own one-of- a- kind video games in our Gamebuilder Camps, Animation Projects in our Animation Camps, also Modding, Networking and Hosting with Minecraft.

According to the National Center for Education Statistics, only 62% of students who attend college actually finish and earn a degree.

Trilogy was co-founded to address and diminish these roadblocks by implementing rigorous curriculum, including up to 12 advance placement courses, giving students the skills needed to be prepared, self-reliant, and confident throughout their college years. Small class sizes and highly qualified faculty ensure students have the guidance and support needed to bridge the gap between the high school experience and college expectations.

BRIEF CAMP DESCRIPTION: MDAW is a collaborative effort between The Minnesota Urban Debate League (a program of Augsburg University) and The University of Minnesota Debate Team.

CAMP INSTRUCTIONAL ACTIVITIES OFFERED:
Theater, Academics, and more. Policy Debate, Congressional Debate, & Speech

CAMP LOCATION: We are located on Augsburg University's campus in the heart of Minneapolis. Please visit our website for more information.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: MDAW’s Format Encourages Skill-Building.
MDAW offers instructional workshops tailored to specific age groups. We work with area educators to provide a comprehensive curriculum that readies students at every level with evidence and skills for the next debate season.

MDAW Students Get TONS of Practice.
We offer practice debates and skill-building drills nearly every day of camp. Middle school students find friendly competition in a full length debate at the end of their weekly sessions – so students can get a feel for the tournament experience. For high school students each session offers a number of full-length debates throughout their camp stay. In addition to this, staff facilitate re-dos, provide feedback, and create concrete steps for the student to continue improvement while at camp, carrying those skills into the competitive season.

MDAW Faculty Work Hard.
We have incredibly experienced, talented folks working with students on a day-to-day basis. We make sure that students are exposed to a variety of styles while ensuring they can focus on skills and strategies they’ll use throughout the year. Our goal is to attract the best talent to our workshop so that students who attend MDAW will be prepared to have a successful season and build community.

MDAW is Budget Conscious.
Our workshop operates on a not-for-profit basis. We run MDAW out of a desire to increase local opportunities for excellent debate instruction, not to make money. Tuition and room/board expenses are pegged to cost of running the workshop and providing fair salaries for staff. Scholarships are available, so don’t hesitate to contact us even though financial constraints may be a problem. We are committed to making sure no student is prevented from attending due to challenging economic circumstances, to the extent possible.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Full and partial scholarships are available.

VIEW CAMP PHOTO

CAMP LOCATION: Laketrails is located on Oak Island in Lake of the Woods, about 6 miles from the mainland in the extreme northern area of Minnesota. We are found in the very unique Northwest Angle region of MN approximately 65 miles from the nearest U.S. towns of Roseau and Warroad, MN. The Base Camp location encompasses 17 wooded acres with rustic cabins, and it lies adjacent to our 250+ acres of wooded wilderness on the main part of Oak Island. Check out our website and this link to the Laketrails Photo Gallery: Our Camp Website Link: laketrails.org.

CAMP FACILITIES: Campers sleep in tents while on their 5-6 day canoe trips. Base Camp accommodations include 7 rustic camper cabins with bunks, our main Lodge where meals are served, the Chart House, or program building; a sauna, a large campfire area, and the Wilderness Building for trip food and equipment. Walking paths connect the facilities with an open yard for games and gatherings near the Lodge. All areas provide beautiful views of Lake of the Woods.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: "Unconditional acceptance" has been the hallmark of Laketrails since 1952. We believe every teen should be accepted for who they are, and we seek to develop empowered youth by teaching a healthy appreciation of nature, community living, and the gift of themselves. Teens gain a true sense of confidence and competence while paddling their way into the Canadian wilderness.

Nearly all activities at Laketrails involve the water! Swimming, beach games, fishing, Fun-yaks, canoeing, and campfires are all popular pastimes. A 5-6 day canoe trip through the island wilderness of Ontario is at the heart of our 9-day program.

Laketrails staff is certified in Wilderness First Aid and CPR, and well-trained in safety protocols, wilderness travel, and communication. To best serve our campers, a 1:5 ratio is maintained between staff and campers. We are proudly accredited by the American Camp Association. Please visit our website, Our Camp Website Link: www.laketrails.org, for more information.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Developing leadership skills is an inherent by-product of the Laketrails program. Youth are actively involved in planning their canoe trips, and by the end of their trail experience have developed an important sense of leadership and competence by contributing to the success of their group. Returning campers are eligible to apply for our Camper-Worker program which is a leadership position for campers.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: At Laketrails we believe no one should be deprived of the opportunity to experience a wilderness adventure because of a lack of finances. Therefore, we are pleased to be able to offer financial aid for campers in need. Campers who qualify for free/reduced school lunch automatically qualify for our financial aid. Please complete our "campership" application: Our Camp Website Link: laketrails.org.
