Get your group out on the water! Clearwater Outfitters will equip your groups with everything they need to canoe down the Mississippi or go kayak fishing on Warner Lake. Their river trips take place on a stretch of the Mississippi designated by the DNR as “wild and scenic.” Warner Lake is a small non-motorized lake that is calm, scenic and full of wildlife. Make a trip to the southern shore for a large picnic area and a sandy swimming beach.

5:30 – 6:00pm
Travel to St. Cloud, MN.

6 – 7:30pm
Welcome to St. Cloud! Dinner this evening will be downtown at Nick’s 3rd Floor restaurant. With a menu built around “what Minnesota has to offer,” your groups can eat comfortably knowing that the majority of what is on their plate came from within a 25-mile radius of St. Cloud.

7:30 – 9:30pm
