​ADVENTURE STARTS HERE

Energizing youth since 1924.

For generations of Minnesotans, Camp Fire camps have captured the glory of a summer’s day at the beach or the magic of a winter’s hike in the woods. Here, in the forests and fields of more than 100 acres on the shore of Lake Minnewashta, young people discover in nature something many didn’t even know they were looking for. Themselves. Their inner sparks. The kindling to ignite their true potential. All youth are welcome. Light the fire within.

Our camp name has recently changed, you can read about that here.

We are a diverse community committed to creating a welcoming experience where each camper can bring their full selves to campAll youth are welcome. Discover more about what inclusion looks like at camp.
