Group Recreation Programs

If you are searching for unique outdoor recreation opportunities for your group, look no farther! Let Carver County Parks instructors customize an affordable program for your family, employee outing, school, scout, or church group!

There are two different pricing structures for Group Recreation Programs: 'Private' & 'Contracted'

  • Private Groups are stand-alone recreational programming offered to a school, scout, church, family, or team sports group upon their inquiry.
  • Contracted Groups are groups that contact us from government agency, community organization, company, school, or club to provide a specific, pre-packaged recreational service for an existing program series or special event. Carver County has no responsibility in the overall event development, administration or advertising.

Please contact the Parks Office for more information & booking. Our ability to accommodate your group depends on staff availability, please book early to ensure that we are available. Check out the Group Program Flyer for a complete list of our program opportunities.
