T.U.N.E. (The Ultimate Nature Experience) aims to encourage and support youth in their endeavor to participate in exciting outdoor activities, learn new outdoor skills, explore fascinating aspects of the natural world, begin to understand the relationships between humans, wildlife, land & water, and establish lifelong appreciation and stewardship of the world they inherit.

T.U.N.E Camp in Minnesota

  • Minnesota’s  first T.U.N.E. Camp  was conducted in 2009
  • We’ve grown from a 2-day event for a handful of campers to a 5-day/4-night summer camp program for about 45 campers in 2017
  • Young campers come from all around Minnesota, and parts of Wisconsin and Iowa to enjoy an exciting camp experience while learning about the natural environment
  • Under the direction of a passionate volunteer, Bruce Gockowski, the Camp program has expanded rapidly since 2013
  • T.U.N.E. Camp MN relies solely on donor funding and registration & enrollment fees for operational expenses

Non-Profit and Volunteer Based

We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization formed under the Lady Slippers Chapter of Pheasants Forever. Funding comes in part from the Chapters of Pheasants Forever, Trout Unlimited, Laughing Trout, and other organizations and people like you, providing donations and scholarships to help students come to camp. Our volunteer staff consists of members from many different conservation groups who share the common interest to better educate students toward achieving our goal.
