If your boys are looking for adventure this summer or if you are looking something to ignite their spiritual growth, Camp Nathanael is that place.
Camp Nathanael is a non-profit, independent Christian boys’ camp located on a private lake 20 miles east of Hinckley, Minnesota. The camp has a very low camper-to-counselor ratio and offers a scenic, safe and rustic setting for a variety of outdoor activities. Whether a boy’s interests lean to swimming or sailing, model rockets or woodworking, climbing or mountain biking, shooting or archery, Camp Nathanael has something for him. There are also high-energy group games and activities that are suited to boys of all abilities.
With our beautiful natural setting as a backdrop, our programs and activities are designed to help boys grow physically, socially, mentally and spiritually.
For most of our campers, this is the first time they have had anyone other than a pastor or parent talk to them about their faith in Christ. Our high school and college age counselors are uniquely positioned to reach young boys and illustrate with their own lives their faith and solid values.
An important focus of Camp Nathanael is the leadership training and development of the young men who are the core of our summer leadership team. Following a rigorous application process, this team spends two weeks in intensive training. Through the summer they serve in a variety of capacities, participate in daily staff meetings, receive weekly evaluations, and meet regularly with a mentor.
Camp Nathanael offers a complete summer camping program for boys grades 3-12 as well as father/son programs.
