How does a Grandparent introduce their Grandkids to the fun of camping when it has been a while and equipment is expensive? With a one-night or two-night I Can Camp! overnight program—no experience necessary. The I Can Camp! crew is on hand day and night to answer all of your "how do I do it?" questions. You need to bring your own sleeping bags or bedding, groceries, and personal items. They'll send you a packing list after you sign up for a program. Their list will suggest particular meals and ingredients, but you may adjust the menu and quantities to your own budget and dietary needs.

  • One-night programs are $60; two-night programs are $85 (max. six people per tent).
  • Hands-on instruction on setting up camp, starting a campfire, camp cooking and more from our experienced I Can Camp! crew.
  • Use of tent, air mattresses, cook stove and other gear included.
  • A Minnesota State Parks one-day permit is included.
  • Geocaching, nature photography, fishing—each program offers unique activities that will entertain the whole family.
  • Advance registration is required.

I Can Camp programs are going on all summer. Minnesota, Idaho, Michigan, Oregon, and Georgia have the programs through their DNR and State Parks. Check out the Minnesota 2018 schedule at
