   Sunday Morning Worship - 10:00am

Cathedral of the Pines, a youth camp located 260 miles north of Minneapolis, combines some of the best ingredients for a positive summer experience...prayer, praise, education and recreation.

The mission of Cathedral of the Pines Camp is to serve children and young people by enhancing their spiritual and emotional development. The summer camping experience in the natural beauty of northern Minnesota helps the youth grow in their relationship with God.

Individuals of all ages gather on the lovely shores of Caribou Lake for Christian experiences in an atmosphere of friendship, fine facilities and good food. Trained caring counselors bring the Good News of God and loving volunteers prepare meals. There are health professionals available at all times. A typical camp day includes Bible centered Christian living classes, swimming, paddleboats, nature, hiking, sports fundamentals, arts and crafts, large and small group games, and, of course, delicious food! Each day at Cathedral of the Pines begins and ends in the chapel overlooking beautiful Caribou Lake.

The camp schedule includes separate weeks for children entering third grade through high school graduating seniors. Adult and family retreats are offered throughout the camping season.  Visitors are welcome. Evening and Sunday chapel services are open to all.
