Our other campus highlights feature recreational, historical, cultural, and group activities. Many of these activities encourage participants to make personal choices and set goals, then strive to achieve these goals.
Our recreated historical and cultural sites give students the opportunity to reflect on how their life today has been shaped by history and the people who used to call Minnesota home. Students will participate in life skills used by earlier inhabitants of the upper Midwest, as well as will explore the experiences, culture, and resources of those people and compare them to their own modern day experiences.
Group challenges can only be accomplished through communication, trust, problem solving, and cooperation. Students will identify characteristics that help or hinder individual and group success. Through group and individual processing, students will make the transference from activity to application in real life situations
Understanding the history, following safety rules, and learning the process of shooting is just the beginning. Through hands-on target practice and friendly competitions, students will learn about self-discipline and develop sound decision making skills. We have both indoor and outdoor ranges as well as different styles of bows for participants to try.
Replica Oneota Dwelling Site
Travel back in time to discover what life may have been like for the Oneota, a pre-contact culture who once inhabited the upper Midwest. Participants will visit a replicated dwelling site where they will grind corn for bread, make fire by friction, play games and other activities.
Recreated 1860s Settler Cabin
Minnesota’s rich cultural history comes to life as students take on the roles of early pioneers traveling to Minnesota in the 1850’s. Sawing logs, starting fire with flint and steel, wheat threshing, and making soda bread are just some of the activities participants will sample at our recreated pioneer homestead.
