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.


Our facilities provide a beautiful natural setting for group rentals, retreats, field trips and weddings. This 103-acre property located on Lake Minnewashta is bordered by Lake Minnewashta Regional Park, adding to the natural wildlife and outdoor experience. You’ll frequently see wildlife such as deer, turkeys, turtles and many birds like bald eagles, bluebirds, robins, woodpeckers and more!

We’re conveniently located in the southwest Twin Cities metro, but guests instantly feel like they’re far from the city.

Each summer, we offer 12 weeks of youth summer camp, leaving our camp and facilities available for outside groups to enjoy September through May.
