Adventure Race

Join us for the first-ever New Brighton Parks and Rec Adventure Race! Similar to the “AmazingAdventure Race Logo Race”, registered groups will use clues to navigate to New Brighton area businesses and parks. At each location, participants will be required to complete specific challenges, collect business swag, decode their next clue and more! Friends and family will have the ability to complete the race on their own time throughout the weekend, but the group to navigate through everything in order the fastest, WINS!

Safety camp here we come!  New Brighton Parks and Recreation and the New Brighton Public Safety Departments have joined forces along with local community agencies to make this a Safety Camp you will never forget.  3rd-5th graders will receive training on fire safety, home alone awareness, electrical safety, bullying and so much more!  Lunch and snacks will be provided.  All participants will receive a Safety Camp T-shirt and an award.  Inclement weather information will be sent out by email, so please make sure to check your email before heading to Safety Camp.  We will only accept one friend request per camper and both campers must request each other for it to be granted.  All information will be e-mailed out to participants one week prior to the start of camp.  Please bring a water bottle.

Campers will be required to wear masks, socially distances when possible and will be placed in pods.  Safety Camp will follow all State Guidelines to avoid the spread of COVID-19.
