The Family Adventure Race (FAR) is Saturday, September 27th 2014, from 1:00-3:30 pm (this weekend!). This race is one of our favorite events to put on because it lets parents come out and have fun in the "wilderness" with the kids--or it lets parents bring the kids out to see some of what they do in "grownup" races. Kids from ages 6-16 can come race on a family team (kids and grownups) or a youth team (just kids). Entry is $15 per kid aged 6-16, and adults and kids younger than six race free. You can register here.

It has been a very, very busy summer for GUP.  In addition to all the normal summer activities that most of us get up to with our families, we were able to pull off a fantastic summer adventure camp [check out the video!], host several climbing sessions at the wall in conjunction with other youth focused organizations, and (fingers crossed) actually get this boat house open!

16 youth aged 10-14 will be heading off to the North Shore of Lake Superior next week for Ground UP adventure's third annual adventure camp.  On tap this year is lots of rugged miles on the superior hiking trail, rock climibng at Carlton peak, kayaking and SUPing on the lake, and maybe even some packrafting.  Huge thanks to Altru Health Systems and the  Grand Forks Parks District for providing funding for camp scholarships this year.
