As a faith based summer camp, Camp Fontanelle tries to provide wholesome family fun at a family friendly price. Each fall a pumpkin patch and corn maze is available at a cost of only $4 for ages 3-11 and $6 for age 12 and older. 4 acres of pumpkins are free will donation and we offer a 10 acre maze (see website) that is challenging without a map. A petting barn, campfire rings with firewood provided, hayrack rides, a jumping pillow, games, and bounce houses are all part of the experience. Almost all concessions are only $1 and laser tag in the corn ($3/game), pony rides ($2), and zip lines ($10 for 2 rides) are also available. Toilets and wash sinks with soap are available. The camp offers the lodge, 5 miles of hiking, and above activities along with tree climbing on rope, overnight retreats, food service, 5 miles of hiking trails, a swimming pool (summer only), archery, and other activities for any event, reunion, or party which you might like the camp to host. As a Christian faith-based camp our goal is for your family to grow closer to God through a nature based encounter with creation. (less)... Read more
As an accredited member of the Association of Zoos & Aquariums (AZA) the Great Plains Zoo & Delbridge Museum of Natural History in Sioux Falls, SD strives to fulfill four major objectives: Education, Conservation, Recreation and Discovery.
The Great Plains Zoo features over 1,000 animals from around the world. Our 45-acre park offers up-close views of animals often not found in larger zoos, including giraffes, tigers, rhinos and a jumping, hooting array of primates. Watch the playful tiger cubs at the Asian Cat exhibit. Visit mom, dad, and baby rhino at the new 'Rare Rhinos of Africa' exhibit. Feed a goat, ride a camel, or get a kiss from a sheep with six horns in the Hy-Vee Face-to-Face Farm.
The Zoo also includes the Delbridge Museum of Natural History, a one-in-the-world collection of 150 mounted animals including 36 'vanishing species.' (less)... Read more
