Welcome to Positive Energy Outdoors! 

Our Mission: Positive Energy Outdoors (PEO), 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.  

Our Programs: Outdoor education blends physical skill building, positive social interactions and time spent in nature.  PEO's programs help people of all ages, skill levels and income 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 youth from schools and youth agencies.  

Our Supporters: PEO has been a proud partner agency of the Head of the Lakes United Way since 2013.  This partnership helps support PEO's outdoor education activities for over 1,000 children, including 500+ low-moderate income youth, annually.

Thank you to maurices for their generous, continued sponsorship of our portable climbing wall in 2016.  

PEO is also proud to be the first recipient of the HMI Bright Choice Scholarship, which allows PEO to expand our program partnerships with the Duluth YWCA Girl Power Program and the Boys and Girls Club of the Northland Lincoln Park Branch through 2018.
