This way to summer fun!

Minnetonka Community Education has been offering summer programming for youth since 1974. Enjoy this flashback to our 1990 MCE Summer Catalog cover while you use this week-byweek guide to plan your family’s 2019 summer activities.


From Mud School mountain biking to tennis lessons and everything in between, MCE summer programming has something for everyone. You’ll find us in fields and parks across the community from Shorewood to Minnetonka and from Chanhassen to Wayzata. This summer, MCE is offering four new VANTAGE camps, a new history program called Homestead Camp 101 in Excelsior, and Summer Touch-Up Music Lessons through our Minnetonka Music Academy. And just like every summer MCE offers one-on-one tutoring and academic support to keep kids engaged and ready for the next school year. We also have a variety of wonderful opportunities for youth to participate in sports and outdoor recreation. 1
