Summer Adventure Camp trip to Bell Museum and Como Zoo

Have you ever seen a bison? Have you wondered if flamingos are as pink in real life as they are in pictures? Have you wanted to find out more about the mysteries of space? Would you like to be immersed in an “Exploradome”?

We can help with these mysteries this summer! The Chester Bowl Summer Adventure Camp is heading to the Bell Museum of Natural History and the Como Zoo and Conservatory in the Twin Cities, and we want you to join us!

We are taking a bus from Chester on Thursday, June 19th, leaving at 7 am and returning at 7:30 pm.

Children 10 and older can attend on their own. Those under 10 must have an adult or responsible older sibling with them. The cost for the trip is only $34 (same for adults and children).

Please contact us at chesterbowlpark@gmail.com or call at 724-9832, and we will send you the application form.
