Set the date for the EXPO at the MN History Center on Monday, August 17, 2015!

It’s time to get ready for the 2015 EXPO at the MN History Center in Saint Paul...

   “It's awesome to get a big jump start on my school year field trips. I bring my calendar and book things right there on the spot. There is always something new to book that I know the kids will LOVE!

                                                                                   K Kroll, Minnetonka Explorers Club

“It is a "must attend" for any programmer. The vendors provide you with all of the information necessary to have a great activity. The YMCA pulls out our EXPO bag every year to plan our field trips each summer. This event provides us with new and relevant ideas for the kids!  Definitely worthwhile!”                   J Krueger, Andover YMCA
