All proceeds from the Twin Cities Snowshoe Shuffle go to support Camp Bovey, a summer resident camp for boys and girls ages 8-14. Their mission is to provide a safe place for youth to have fun while participating in outdoor activities that help build respect for themselves, one another, and the environment.
Since 1949, East Side Neighborhood Services has provided youth in our community the opportunity to attend Camp Bovey.
Camp Bovey is located approximately 150 miles from Minneapolis in Northwestern Wisconsin’s Gordon Township near the origin of the St. Croix River. Two hundred acres of pine forest with sandy soil surrounding a spring fed lake will be your child’s home this summer. Our private Lake Metzger provides the perfect setting for swimming, boating, canoeing, fishing and watching wildlife.
Camp Bovey features the traditional activities: Swimming lessons, open swim, crafts, outdoor living skills, camping and canoeing trips, hikes, picnics and ball games are included in our program. Campers gather at the campfire ring for songs, stories, skits and to share experiences. Camp Bovey also has two specialty camps: Visual Arts & Performing Arts. During these two specialty camps, innovative, professional art educators facilitate customized, hands-on, studio-like, outdoor education. An unforgettable experience!
