Camps and Events

We have three amazing summer 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.

Best. Summer. Ever.
