A maze’n Farmyard has been entertaining families in Eden Valley, Minnesota, since 2004. The park has a number of child-friendly attractions, including inflatable bounce houses suitable for all ages as well as a walk-in birdhouse and a relaxing wagon ride. A maze’n Farmyard demonstrates its commitment to community service by supporting the efforts of the Eden Valley chapter of Lions Club International.

Lions Club International operates a number of community-based projects, including Lions Quest, which is focused on delivering high-quality youth development education. Conducting character development and life-skill training for primary and secondary school students, Lions Quest has workshop topics ranging from building self-confidence to managing conflict.

Lions Quest was founded in 1975 as Quest International, the result of a years-long journey to develop a values-based curriculum by 19-year-old Rick Little, who also went on to establish and lead the International Youth Foundation. The program’s success resulted in millions of dollars in funding for expansion from Lions Club International Foundation. Today, Lions Quest courses are taught to over 12 million students in 90 countries.

Lions Quest programming and curriculum have received various recognitions, including endorsements from the National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices and the National Youth Leadership Council.
