​ADVENTURE STARTS HERE

Energizing youth since 1924.

For generations of Minnesotans, one word has captured the glory of a summer’s day at the beach or the magic of a winter’s hike in the woods: Tanadoona. 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.

Summer camp is back! Though it will look a little different in 2021…

The health and safety of our campers and staff are always our first priority. In 2021, as we plan around COVID-19, our summer camp offerings are limited to Day Camps and Leadership Development Programs only, with the expectation that Resident programs will resume in 2022. Updates will be added to our COVID-19 FAQs and Parent Resources page.
