Some of the Keweenaw Heritage Sites may also offer attractions and activities for kids during the summer. Check with the park for the most up-to-date details.

Kids in Parks
National parks are great places to explore anything kids can imagine. Go on an outdoor adventure. Walk in the footsteps of famous people. Take in unique scenery. Explore new interests. Experience real places you may have only heard about. But most of all, national parks are places where you can have fun and create memories that last a lifetime.
"Parked" at Home
Feel the need to stay “parked” at home? The National Park Service (NPS) and our partner the National Park Foundation (NPF) challenge you to test your knowledge or learn a little more about parks with a series of games and activities. More will be added to this page, so remember to check back for more fun.

Project Sisu Map

Project Sisu
Project Sisu occurred during the summer of 2013 and was intended to help area youth find sisu in themselves, each other , and the local community. This map is a result of their work. In the summer of 2016, our GRACE interns created an interactive web version of the map.
