An Unforgettable Experience
Now is a great time to start planning your kayaking, climbing, SUP or draft horse adventure in Duluth and on the North Shore. Our professional staff of outdoor educators look forward to acting as your guide, coach and storyteller. All ages, group sizes and experience levels are welcome. Looking for an adventure for your teenager? Learn more about our new Duluth and North Shore Adventure Sampler for Teens, where teens spend two weeks designing and implmenting their own kayaking, SUP, hiking, climbing, canoeing and camping trip. We'll see you outside!
Welcome to Positive Energy Outdoors
Positive Energy Outdoors, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit founded in 2004, encourages people and animal powered exploration of the outdoors. Our programs emphasize teamwork, healthy risk taking, and positive communication, creating learning opportunities that can lead to a lifetime of active adventures.
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 United Way of Greater Duluth, The North Face Explore Fund, the Lloyd K. Johnson Foundation and the Enventis Foundation. Thank you to maurices for their generous sponsorship of our portable climbing wall in 2015.
