Welcome back, summer! It's time to CAMP! We’ll have a ton of that traditional camp fun all while following the latest coronavirus safety standards from the CDC and the Minnesota Department of Health. Camp may look a little different in 2021, but it’s going to be a great summer!

Use the drop-down tabs to search for camps. Click on the title of the camp for more information and to download the welcome letter. Camper grade is designated as the grade completed as of June in the current school year. When registering online for the first time, plan for the process to take 15-20 minutes to complete.

Current COVID-19 safety guidelines include reductions to overall group size and camp capacity, so we will have less space in our summer camping events. If an event is full, you will be placed on a waitlist. But don’t give up! As COVID-19 conditions change we hope to adjust our capacities upward and register those on our waitlists for their chosen event. You will be notified no later than 3-weeks prior to the start of your event if you are moved from a waitlist onto the event roster. Please let our central office camp staff know as soon as possible if you decide to register for a different event and no longer wish to remain on the waitlist. 

Please see our FAQ section for answers to common registration questions. If you need further assistance, contact the camping office at camps@campminnesota.org, or give us a call toll-free at 855-622-1973.

Affiliated camp events take place at Camp Minnesota campsites and elsewhere around the state. They are organized and led by friends of Camp Minnesota, but operate independently of Camp Minnesota. Each affiliated camp handles its own registration, programming, safety and risk management, and is not included in Camp Minnesota’s American Camp Association accreditation process. These affiliated camps are included in this listing as suggestions of additional opportunities led by United Methodist leaders. To register for these camps, contact the leaders directly.
Serve MSP #415 $40 per student 7 - 12 8/3/2021 - 8/5/2021 Register

Serve MSP 

Serve MSP is a day camp for youth in grades 7-12.  At Serve MSP, youth will spend time volunteering with service partners that work to support and advocate for the marginalized and those in need in the Twin Cities area.  Each day will also include time to hear from community speakers and leaders about topics rooted in social justice.  We’ll be unpacking scripture and stories related to these topics, too, with an anchor held in this verse from Esther:  

“For such a time as this.” 

Minnesota has been a central figure in conversations about social justice in recent history.  Serve MSP will allow an opportunity to safely gather with other youth and community leaders, to serve organizations that are doing justice work every day, and to engage in necessary conversations.  

We'll gather from August 3-5 at several locations in the Twin Cities (itineraries will be distributed to adult leaders before camp week).  We'll have a Zoom Kickoff Event on Aug 2 and a closing worship service on August 5. In the weeks leading up to Serve MSP, adult leaders will have a menu of service and learning opportunities to choose from and can determine what will be best for their group (based on group size, age, learning emphasis).   

$40/student will cover the cost of materials (and for a sweet t-shirt) over the course of the camp week. Scholarships are available. Please contact youth@minnesotaumc.org to apply.
