Donate Today And Your Donation Will Be Matched Dollar for Dollar -- Up To $53K, Thanks To Generous Donors!

As we collectively prepare our hearts and minds for the holidays, your friends at Giants of the Earth Heritage Center are reflecting on gratitude and growth. Our realized goals and dreams have been the result of a dedicated volunteer board, staff, and their reliance on best practices. But we have even greater vision for the time ahead, and with that comes specific challenges.

Find out more about our goals for growth and how you can help via our annual fundraising campaign and Giving Tuesday click here to have your donation matched today!

Save the date for next year's camp: June 17-21, 2024!

Our 2024 theme is “Dragons, Boats, and Trolls, Oh my!”

Prepare for engaging literary and outdoor adventures, conjure and build a unique creature for our Norwegian Ridge Birding & Nature Trail, and learn a hearty dose of Norwegian language and history along the way in charming and historic Spring Grove, MN!

We look forward to welcoming back our wonderful camp leaders Wendi Storhoff and Rachel Storlie, with additional help by Norwegian speaking counselors and local Sons of Norway and Giants volunteers.
