Best summer ever.

Tanadoona is the perfect place for children to spend their summer. We are passionate about getting kids outside and creating a new community that they wouldn’t experience anywhere else. Here you can be yourself, learn alongside friends and caring adults, and have fun in the outdoors!

Each week of Day Camp is filled with a wide range of outdoor and nature-based activities that build character, ignite wonder and curiosity, and fill the woods with laughter. Zig-zag across Lake Minnewashta by canoe or kayak, take aim during archery in the woods, express your creative side through a variety of arts, become an outdoor survivalist and gather ’round the campfire. Adventure awaits at Tanadoona!

Day Camp runs Monday – Friday for ages 5-14.

  • Tanadoona Day Camp offers campers the full range of camp activities.
  • Specialty Day Camps provide campers dedicated time each day in their specialty area, with the rest of the day spent participating in the many other camp activities.

Plus, with easy check-in/out, Day Camp is convenient for parents and kids!

Each week a few activities are designed around our Weekly Theme. Campers are encouraged to dress-up for the theme each week – have fun!
