DAY CAMPS

Best summer ever.

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.

 

Camp Fire Minnesota is the perfect place for children to spend their summer. We are passionate about getting kids outside and creating a new community that they wouldn’t experience anywhere else. Here you can be yourself, learn alongside friends and caring adults, and have fun in the outdoors!

Each week of Day Camp is filled with a wide range of outdoor and nature-based activities that build character, ignite wonder and curiosity, and fill the woods with laughter. Zig-zag across Lake Minnewashta by canoe or kayak, take aim during archery in the woods, express your creative side through a variety of arts, become an outdoor survivalist and gather ’round the campfire. Adventure awaits!
