CAMP
NATHANAEL


 

Camp Nathanael is a Christian, all boys summer camp in Minnesota just 90 minutes from the Twin Cities, 20 miles east of Hinckley. 

We keep it simple as a rustic, old-school camp. No electricity in the cabins means there's more time for real connections with others and with Christ. Wake up to a bugle, stand tall at the flag raising ceremony, and spend time reading the Bible without modern distractions.

Learn new skills, participate in games, and gather by a fire to sing songs, tell stories, and act out funny skits. And during the fun, be cared for and challenged to grow in faith and maturity. 

Leadership development is also a core part of camp. Our counselors and staff are mentored, challenged and given opportunities for leadership in a way that is unlike any other place on earth. 

If you already love Camp Nathanael, the best Minnesota camp for boys, and you like the new website, help us get the word out. "LIKE" the Camp page on Facebook and/or SHARE it to your timeline.

 
 
  • My son absolutely loves Camp Nathanael! He talks about it for months after he returns and can't wait for camp to come again the next year.
    — Mary Beth Steen, Medicine Lake, MN
  • I have experience at YMCA camps, and other church sponsored camps, which were all good, but Camp Nathanael outshined them in the quality of staff and the atmosphere. I would encourage anyone to bring their son here.
    — Camper Parent
  • My son GREW in the short time that he was at camp. He didn't change in stature, but in maturity, and with a firmer grasp of being a young man of God. He felt safe and grew in confidence. He is looking forward to next year!
    — J.T., North Branch, Minnesota
  • Camp Nathanael challenged our son physically and spiritually in an atmosphere of fun, acceptance and community. He can't wait to return. In his words, "One of the best weeks of my life!"
    — Robin, Maple grove (1st time camper parent)
  • The camp counselors were extremely helpful and positive There were plenty of activities I appreciated the opportunity/excuse to do nothing other than hang out with my son. It is very hard to do that during our busy lives.
    — Dad who attended Father/Son Camp
