VIEW CAMP PHOTO

CAMP LOCATION: Laketrails is located on Oak Island in Lake of the Woods, about 6 miles from the mainland in the extreme northern area of Minnesota. We are found in the very unique Northwest Angle region of MN approximately 65 miles from the nearest U.S. towns of Roseau and Warroad, MN. The Base Camp location encompasses 17 wooded acres with rustic cabins, and it lies adjacent to our 250+ acres of wooded wilderness on the main part of Oak Island. Check out our website and this link to the Laketrails Photo Gallery: Our Camp Website Link: laketrails.org.

CAMP FACILITIES: Campers sleep in tents while on their 5-6 day canoe trips. Base Camp accommodations include 7 rustic camper cabins with bunks, our main Lodge where meals are served, the Chart House, or program building; a sauna, a large campfire area, and the Wilderness Building for trip food and equipment. Walking paths connect the facilities with an open yard for games and gatherings near the Lodge. All areas provide beautiful views of Lake of the Woods.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: "Unconditional acceptance" has been the hallmark of Laketrails since 1952. We believe every teen should be accepted for who they are, and we seek to develop empowered youth by teaching a healthy appreciation of nature, community living, and the gift of themselves. Teens gain a true sense of confidence and competence while paddling their way into the Canadian wilderness.

Nearly all activities at Laketrails involve the water! Swimming, beach games, fishing, Fun-yaks, canoeing, and campfires are all popular pastimes. A 5-6 day canoe trip through the island wilderness of Ontario is at the heart of our 9-day program.

Laketrails staff is certified in Wilderness First Aid and CPR, and well-trained in safety protocols, wilderness travel, and communication. To best serve our campers, a 1:5 ratio is maintained between staff and campers. We are proudly accredited by the American Camp Association. Please visit our website, Our Camp Website Link: www.laketrails.org, for more information.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Developing leadership skills is an inherent by-product of the Laketrails program. Youth are actively involved in planning their canoe trips, and by the end of their trail experience have developed an important sense of leadership and competence by contributing to the success of their group. Returning campers are eligible to apply for our Camper-Worker program which is a leadership position for campers.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: At Laketrails we believe no one should be deprived of the opportunity to experience a wilderness adventure because of a lack of finances. Therefore, we are pleased to be able to offer financial aid for campers in need. Campers who qualify for free/reduced school lunch automatically qualify for our financial aid. Please complete our "campership" application: Our Camp Website Link: laketrails.org.

FAMILY CAMP SESSION(S): In addition to our regular youth camping program, Laketrails offers a women's canoe trip. Dates this year are July 19-27, 2020.

North Central Camp Cherith is a top Leadership Camp for ages: 7 - 18.
VIEW CAMP PHOTO

CAMP LOCATION: Camp Cherith resides about 15 minutes from Detroit Lakes, MN on 280 stunning acres of lakes, woodlands, and rolling hills. Our activities promote interaction with nature, so Cherith campers spend a lot of time outdoors surrounded by the splendor of God's creation. Beautiful Lake Six provides a clean and safe environment for our waterfront activities, and Schram's Lake offers a majestic backdrop for morning devotions, outdoor chapel services, canoeing, and hanging out with friends. Our horsemanship program makes use of miles of wooded trails and our many scenic campfire sites make outdoor cookouts one of the week's highlights.

CAMP FACILITIES: Camp Cherith has a variety of cabins including both stand-alone and dormitory types. In addition, we have a recreation/dining hall, outdoor basketball courts, beautiful chapel area, many wooded paths, and a pristine lake for swimming.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Camp Cherith's Christ-centered community creates an environment where many life-long friendships have gotten their start. Campers learn about God in an interdenominational setting through daily Bible exploration, dynamic campfire messages, and cabin devotions. And everyone participates in Morning Watch, a quiet time spent alone with God reading His Word and praying. All campers experience the thrill of success through skill-building classes. Each camper chooses two activities for the week, which they participate in daily. Our goal is to help each camper either learn a new skill or improve an existing one.

Camp Cherith's multi-age format allows same-gender siblings to attend camp together. (Parents can also come to camp as valued volunteers.) Campers are placed in divisions based on grade level and are assigned to cabins within their division. They spend about half of each day with this group, but campers of different ages do interact during meal times, free time, and various camp activities. Our younger campers look up to the bigger kids and as a result bring out a kind, nurturing spirit in the older boys and girls.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Camp Cherith’s own staff development programs – CILT for girls and BUILT for boys – are two-year programs for campers who’ve completed tenth grade and want to develop leadership skills with an emphasis on spiritual growth. It is an intensive commitment, including the planning and implementation of various camp activities, reading and teaching assignments, and finally a week of actual counseling experience on site. It gives participants the tools necessary to serve as an effective staff member at any of the nation’s Camp Cherith locations.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Partial Scholarships available - No one is turned away due to financial need.
