Camp Registration Now Open!

Camp Minnesota is excited to announce registration for the 2018 Summer Camping season programs is now open. Program information and registration details are available online, and brochures are available at your local church.

“We’re eager to share this summer’s camping opportunities with our families and churches,” said Keith Shew, Dakotas-Minnesota Area Director of Camp & Retreat Ministry. “Your Camping Ministry team, in collaboration with many volunteers, worked hard to provide events for all interests throughout the 2018 camping season. Each event helps campers explore Christian faith and discipleship, experience community and hospitality, develop as leaders, and provides a safe place apart in nature for growth and reflection." 

Camp Minnesota offers programs and experiences for children, youth, families, and adults at three beautiful MN locations: Koronis Ministries (Paynesville, MN), Northern Pines Camp (Park Rapids, MN), and Kowakan Adventures (Ely, MN). Camper safety is Camp Minnesota’s top priority, and each site is accredited by the American Camp Association. Campers and guests are invited to experience Christ, Creation, and Community through camp and retreat ministries.

The 2018 Bible Study theme will be Beyond Belief! This Bible study invites campers to ask the big questions about God and explores how God can be seen in the vastness of creation, the power of community, and in their own hearts. Some games, worship services, Bible studies, art projects, and service projects will be a part of this theme. Campers will discover how God’s endless love launches amazing adventures. God always has new mysteries for us to explore.

The online registration system allows access to everything from financial information to medical forms directly from our website at Each of our camps offer online registration for most programs, making it easy to register for a favorite or to find a new one to attend.
