Students at Northern Lights are surrounded by the many lakes, streams, woodlands and hundreds of miles of trails in Northeastern Minnesota's Iron Range - - an ideal setting for participants of all ages.

Students and their parents, as well as faculty and staff, have access to a wide variety of activities including swimming, hiking, kayaking, biking and boating.

The festival usually has one day set aside for an outdoor barbecue at a scenic location away from campus. Whether its along Lake Superior or near the source of the Mississippi near Bemidji, this day trip gives students and teachers a chance to unwind and enjoy the scenic beauty of the Range.

Plus, with proximity to attractions like the Soudan Underground Mine, and the International Wolf Center in Ely, the location in Hoyt Lakes opens the door for more fun and educational day trips.
