The Outdoor Campus - East (sioux falls)

Outdoor Skills and Nature Center

Outdoor Campus East

The Outdoor Campus in Sioux Falls is your portal to a lifetime of outdoor adventures. Through the careful guidance of staff and volunteers, you will find yourself drawn into activities you had never considered: hunting and fishing, cross-country skiing, shooting a bow and arrow, cooking wild game in a Dutch oven, gardening for butterflies, and much more. Visit us anytime at The Outdoor Campus and bring your family and friends. If you do, don't be surprised if we reel you in. We have a corps of over 150 volunteers to help us welcome and instruct our visitors.

Baby animals! If you care, leave them there!
