Cathedral of the Pines is summer youth camp in Lutsen, MN, sponsored by Mount Olivet Lutheran Church

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. Friendships are formed that last a lifetime!

Individuals of all ages gather on the lovely shores of Caribou Lake for Christian experiences in an atmosphere of friendship, spiritual growth, fine facilities, and great food. Trained and caring counselors bring the good news of God's love and dedicated volunteers prepare meals. Health professionals are available at all times. A typical camp day includes brief Bible Study, swimming, nature exploration, hiking, sports, arts and crafts, large and small group games, variety shows, 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 specific weeks for children entering third grade through high school graduating seniors. Adult, family, and volunteer sessions are also available throughout the summer. Visitors are welcome at evening chapel services (7:30pm daily) and Sunday morning worship.
