As a high schooler, you’re probably accustomed to being bored once in a while, however it doesn’t always have to be that way. If you attend Lakeville North or Lakeville South High School, there are plenty of fun activity ideas just waiting to be found, both in your hometown and throughout greater Minnesota. Whether you’re in the mood to flex your creative muscle, participate in a social group with like-minded individuals or find a secluded spot to relax, we’ll help you find the right thing to do, whether during summer break or after the bell rings.

So, let’s take a look at some fun activities for Lakeville High students — both in and out of the classroom — that you can participate in when you’re trying to stave off boredom. Check ‘em out!

Sign Up For An Activity Club

Even though Lakeville North and Lakeville South are crosstown rivals, that doesn’t mean you can’t start a club that includes anyone that shares the same passion as you. Whether you’re trying to start a computer coding club, intramural sports team or school-based volunteer organization, you can likely find a community interested in joining. Otherwise, Lakeville North has an array of co-curricular activities and Lakeville South offers many student-led clubs.

Enjoy The Outdoors

There are an endless number of fun activities in Lakeville, but perhaps one of the best parts of this town is the access to outdoor recreation. You can find peace among nature at several areas like the hiking trails at Ritter Farm Park, go swimming at Antlers Park or try your luck fishing at Orchard Lake Park.

Sign Up For A Video Game Tournament

Video games are as popular as ever, and throughout the past decade have transformed from a time-killing hobby to a way to actually make money in real eSports competitions. From Call of Duty to Rocket League to Fortnite, there are tournaments, both free and paid, available for a number of different games. Check out this guide to get started with making money playing video games.

Stay Sharp Over Breaks

While a break from school is much welcomed by most high school students, those who have a curious personality never stop learning. If this describes you, a trip to one of the many historical destinations scattered around the Lakeville area may be right up your alley. Visit the Dakota City Heritage Village to experience rural life in 1900-era Lakeville through a recreated historic village and museum. Or, learn everything there is to know about Sweden, and why so many ended up migrating to Minnesota at the award-winning American Swedish Institute.

Add A Trip To Your List

There are amazing destinations all over the midwest that make a quick, safe trip for a high schooler. If you’ve dreamt of traveling the region, without an adult, there are places around Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin and the Dakotas that make excellent day trips or short overnighters when traveling from Lakeville (if you can get permission from your parents or guardian, of course). Explore the beauty of Lake Superior in Duluth, drive the rolling bluffs of Iowa or take a trip to historic Sioux City, South Dakota to carve out your own adventure.

Take Flying Lessons

For those looking for a new activity that’s challenging, rewarding and truly impressive, consider learning to fly an airplane. Not many high schoolers can say that they’re certified pilots. However, you can participate in flying lessons at almost any age. You just need to be 16 to solo and 17 to obtain official certification. When you achieve your private pilot license, you open yourself up to a world of new opportunities, from attending an aviation college to becoming a professional pilot and so much more. If you’re in high school and want to learn how to fly, take a look at Inflight Pilot Training’s Discovery Flight option. You get the chance to harness the controls and soar the skies, while gaining introductory instruction on piloting an airplane from a professional.
