Welcome to the Minnesota Camping and Retreat Ministries

Welcome to Camp Minnesota, a year-round ministry of the Minnesota Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church.  Our mission is to provide quality camp, retreat, and conference experiences in which Christ is offered to as many as possible to raise up faithful disciples so that the world is transformed.  Our goal at Camp Minnesota is to help all campers and guests feel safe, secure and loved, and to share and learn about Christ and creation.

Whether you are looking for a great kids camp, sleepaway camp, youth camp, adult retreat, outdoor adventure or a cabin to rent for a getaway we look forward to serving you.  

Camp Minnesota–building  connections with Christ, Community and Creation.

See the joy, the connections, the growth
