Summer 5-8 Big Shots


Big Shots (for grades 5-8) registration begins March 2nd.

Activity Calendar Announcement:

In these uncertain times it is difficult to plan ahead for summer field trips to places that may be closed due to the Coronavirus.  

At this time we are waiting to post our summer activity calendars.  What we know right now is all Minnesota Schools are closed through May 4th as ordered by Governor Walz.  After May 4th we will make a decision based on the recommendations regarding COVID-19 to either proceed with the scheduled trips or cancel the planned summer calendar.  

We continue to follow the expert guidance from the Minnesota Department of Health.  

Thank you for your patience.

Susan Hernlem

Hastings SAC Program Coordinator 



The deadline to register for BIG SHOTS is May 22, 2020.  No credits will be given for any cancellation dates received after May 22nd. (We will accept additional dates throughout the summer on a space available basis only).

Pick a summer that fits their interests

Are your kids into animals? Or Legos? Or bugs or camping or cooking or treasure hunts? Great! How about engaging in some entertaining activities during our special themed days? Are they big on science? Or art or sports or music or games or crafts? Excellent — they’ll fit right in! Do they enjoy lively shows? We have a bunch lined up, right here on-site with special guests from magicians to raptors to theatre performers. Would they like to learn to swim? Or take a day trip to a sports event or the Zoo or a water park or the movies or a circus?

Perfect! It’s all happenings right there this summer at Camp Horizons and Big Shots. Don’t let them miss out!

… and fits their age.

Each camp’s staff, activities and fun are hand-picked for that age group. No parent wants to make extra stops each day. So, both camps are at one convenient location — Hastings High School.

We offer 11 weeks of summer fun:
• June 10 through August 21
• Monday through Friday
• 6:30 am-6:00 pm

Pay a straight per-day fee, and pay only for the days you pick
The extras aren’t extra. Everything (except optional swim lessons) is included in our straight $39 per-day fee. That means everything. Includes transportation, field trips, themed days, daily snacks, on-site performers and a summer T-shirt.
• Field trips , 2 each week
• 2 snacks with beverage each day
• Special on-site “EdVentures” performances
• All program materials and supplies
• Camp Horizons/Big Shots will transport your child to/from all other activities within Hastings city limits on days your child is enrolled in camp.
• A Camp Horizons or Big Shots T-shirt to wear on field trips (and to keep, of course)

Not to mention the extras that really count —
• Designed to meet the recreational, educational, and social needs of all youth
• Skilled creative staff, certified in CPR and First Aid
