To engage children, youth and adults with the life-changing message of Jesus Christ by creating unique camp communities and learning experiences in which our words, our service and our personal relationships capture and communicate the essence of the gospel.
Trout Lake Camps officially opened in 1947 and since then more than 200,000 people have experienced this "meeting place with God." The camp sits on 180 acres north of Brainerd, Minn., and offers incredible experiences, from summer camp fun to intense adventure camping to weekend retreats for youth and adults.
We are owned by approximately 230 Baptist churches who are associated with the Minnesota Iowa Baptist Conference (www.mbcworld.org). Since 1960 we have been a member of the Christian Camp and Conference Association (www.ccca.org). We also have a sister camp in Iowa called Pine Lake Camps (www.pinelakecamps.org)
