The Ultimate Nature Experience

Our name says a lot because there’s so many ways we support young girls and boys in their enthusiasm for fun and educational outdoor activities. The phrase “The Ultimate Nature Experience” gives us our T.U.N.E. name and also describes our wish for you.

Oh, and you don’t have to be an experienced “camper” to have a rewarding experience with us. Our staff and volunteers love to work with youth of all experience levels. Looks like you’re about out of excuses?

See you at Camp.

2018 Pheasants Forever State Convention

Our year begins January 19-20 in Willmar, MN at the Pheasants Forever state convention. We’ll be there to swap stories, tips and tricks while exhibiting the fun and educational outdoor activities that so many young girls and boys enjoy at T.U.N.E. Camp MN. If you attend the show, be sure to stop by our booth to say hello. Looking forward to seeing some familiar faces.

Great Waters Fly Fishing Expo ’17

Bruce, Vic, and other volunteers are running the T.U.N.E. Camp MN booth at the GWFFE this weekend at Hamline University in St. Paul. Follow the link for the schedule and details about the Expo. There is so much to see and do. There is even a huge pool to practice casting on!

We had a quiet day yesterday, but expect to be very busy today and tomorrow. Janine Kohn, creator of the T.U.N.E. program swung in with her husband, Benji, who will be a Camp volunteer again this summer. David and his daughter, Lindsay, a Camper from last year, are volunteering to run the booth today. You can ask her what she thought of T.U.N.E. Camp MN.

Stop by the booth and say hello, check out our display, make your own “fish prints” as these boys are doing, put insect stamps (temporary tattoos) on your skin, or even lend us a hand. We hope to see you there.

 

Great Waters Fly Fishing Expo

Mark your Calendars!

The GWFFE will be held at Hamline University March 17, 18, 19. T.U.N.E. Camp MN will have an informational and activity booth at the Expo once again. If you are interested in volunteering to set-up, run, or take-down the booth, contact Bruce Gockowski.

Maybe we will see you there. It is a superb show. Many, many vendors, presentations, demonstrations, fly-tiers combine to make an exciting Expo every year. There are usually a number of youth-oriented activities planned throughout the weekend, but be sure to check the show schedule for details. Bruce will have the “fish-printing” station set up at our booth so the kids can make some unique artworks to take home.
