Join us for the 2017 Duluth, Minnesota Summit!
Welcome to Family Nature Summits
Whether you come with extended family or on your own, enjoy a week-long adventure celebrating nature with kindred spirits. We bring together local experts and nationally known faculty to create high-quality, hands-on programs.
New Location Every Year
Family Nature Summits take place once a year in a unique location chosen for its natural beauty and exciting opportunities to explore and learn. From the Rocky Mountain peaks of Colorado to the crashing waves of Maine, we provide a one-of-a kind experience that you’ll never forget.
We stay in hotel-style accommodations with clean sheets, warm showers and great meals.
Programs for All Ages
All ages can enjoy the wide ranging options of activities. While toddlers may be learning to build sand castles, elementary school kids may study beaver dams, teens rock climb and young adults mountain bike. Adults get to choose their own activities from a wide range of unique and unusual classes, such as photography field trips, hiking, birding, crafts.
Gathering as an Extended Family
In the evenings we gather for programs such as local musicians, storytellers or an old-fashioned ice cream social.
We hope to see you at the North Shore Summit, Duluth, Minnnesota
