Camp Locations

Camp Minnesota is a non-profit organization offering camps and outdoor ministry opportunities around the state of Minnesota. We provide a wide variety of summer camping events as well as year-round retreat, conference, and meeting spaces.  Camp Minnesota is owned and operated by the Minnesota Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church.

Camp provides an unparalleled experience for children and youth to learn teamwork, gain independence, try new things, and enjoy the outdoors. Camp Minnesota takes the camp experience one step further by allowing young people to develop a deeper relationship with God and see how God is at work in their lives and the world around them.

We have three amazing sites!

An incredible experience is waiting for children, youth, adults, and families this summer through Camp Minnesota, at one of our three sites: KoWaKan Adventures, Koronis Ministries, or Northern Pines Camp.

Whether you stay for a day or a week, time spent at camp will positively impact your life! No matter which camp site or specific camp you choose, you’ll experience all of the traditional “must-have" summer camp favorites, like singing around the campfire, roasting marshmallows, hiking in beautiful pine forests, and swimming in cool blue lakes. Most importantly, all campers will experience Christ, Creation, and Community in the powerful and unique setting that only camp can provide.  Camp Minnesota welcomes United Methodists and non-United Methodists, alike.

Koronis Ministries
Paynesville, Minnesota

Koronis is surrounded by 190 wooded acres on a picturesque lake. Facilities feature historic buildings and state-of-the-art conference amenities. Conference rooms and year-round camping facilities are a perfect fit for any event, from corporate off-sites and weddings, to camps, retreats or outings for all ages, youth to adult.


Northern Pines Camp
Park Rapids, Minnesota

Northern Pines is situated on a 40-acre pine-wood site on the east shore of Fish Hook Lake near the headwaters of the Mississippi River and Itasca State Park. The grounds are ideal for family gatherings, church events (we welcome all denominations), meetings, community groups, special-interest groups, and weddings.



KoWaKan Adventures
Ely, Minnesota

Based out of Camp KoWaKan near the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, KoWaKan Adventures is committed to providing groups a great wilderness camping experience. Visitors can use KoWaKan as a base camp for their own trip or ask the staff to outfit and guide a trip.
