Camp Nathanael is a Christian, all boys summer camp near Hinckley, Minnesota, just 90 minutes from the Twin Cities. 

We are 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, play adventure 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 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.

  • 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.

  • “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

  • “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.
