Description: Bicycling, birding, fishing, kayaking, hike and outdoor PE games. It is the goal of Active Solutions to provide knowledge and use of lifetime skills: math, reading, health, nutrition, fitness, wellness and individual and team related principles and activities. There are four overriding goals when approaching each facet of the subject matter: safety, challenging each individual’s personal best, character building and having fun. Active Solutions instructors emphasize outdoor and indoor play, recreation, fitness and adventure.

Active Solutions has taken the best of Physical Education and Outdoor Adventures and created a course your child(ren) will not forget. This class takes place at the Lynnhurst Community Center and outside along Minnehaha Creek and Minneapolis Lakes. These adventures focus on lifelong sports, recreation and Physical Education.

Winter outdoor activities: ice fishing, hiking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, sledding, broomball, boot soccer, boot hockey, ice skating and hiking

Instructors also incorporate math, reading, health, nutrition and wellness into their lessons. This class is perfect for the children who need more movement in their lives! Lessons are designed to keep kids engaged in learning activities and to keep their heart rates elevated. Character building, cooperative skills, individual success and safety are all emphasized.

MYBirdClub: Amy Simso Dean from MYBirdClub will join 1 class each session. Get outside. Hang with your friends. And get to know our local birds, their habits, sounds and habitats. Get Birding: one of the fastest growing hobbies/sports in the world. BirdClub spends a few minutes sharing stories and meeting 2 new species each session. Then the class heads out, weather permitting, and BIRD. When the weather is gross, the class does other stuff like bird bingo, dissect owl pellets, and have ID contests. The club provides binoculars, field guides, and supplies. Parents are welcome to attend for no fee; no experience or knowledge needed.
