As Duluth's outdoor education center, we help people of all ages and skill levels get outside to enjoy activities from rock climbing to dog sledding. Revenue from our public programs and tours for individuals, couples and families, as well as sampler experiences for large groups of up to 60 participants, allows Positive Energy Outdoors to provide no or low cost outdoor education programs for 500+ low-moderate income youth each year. PEO is proud to receive grant funding from the Head of the Lakes United Way.  In 2015, over 1,000 children have participated in PEO programs!  Thank you to maurices for their generous sponsorship of our portable climbing wall in 2016.
