Camp Amnicon

Camp Amnicon strives to be a sanctuary to all people who set foot on its beautiful Lake Superior shoreline. Amnicon's ministry empowers today's youth by building community on small group adventure trips for at-risk youth groups. Campers are transformed by a week in the wilderness by learning that they are capable of overcoming challenges. Youth return home with the confidence and support to address the challenges in their home lives after team building in the wilderness at Camp Amnicon.

There is something truly electrifying about a the spring time at Camp Amnnicon. 

All of this excitment is thanks to the many people who have taken the time to make sure that every person who has come to Camp Amncion leaves with the knowledge that they are loved and valued. This is what Camp Amnicon is for, connecting youth and adults to creation, themselves and each other.

New Years Reflections on the People of Camp Amnicon

Dear Friends of Amnicon,

Thank you so much for your ongoing prayers and support of the ministry of this camp and all who come to it, as campers, as staff, as visitors.

Camp Amnicon is people. So many individuals from incredibly diverse walks of life come together to connect with each other, creation, and deeper into themselves. Campers and retreat guests are cared for by wonderful staff. The staff is here due to the compassionate giving of all our donors. And it is all connected by the loving work of volunteers and our board members. The effort of hundreds of people contribute greatly to make each young person that experiences a summer trip feel that they truly are lovable and capable (many for the first time). 

The New Year is proving to be full of joys and challenges. The summer calendar is filling up and we are on our way to meeting the goal of hosting over 40 wilderness trips this summer. More volunteers than ever have expressed a desire and a commitment to give of their time and talents. Excited college aged students are beginning the process of applying for positions as Guides and Support Staff, and generous people form across the world are coming together to show their financial support. The people of Amnicon, connecting in ways no one could have expected to provide life changing experiences for those most in need.

Because of your ongoing support, Amnicon continues to make new connections as well as supporting valued relationships with non-profits organizations, churches, and individuals. Many of members of the groups that come to Amnicon would not be able to afford their experience without the loving support and financial contributions of caring donors like you. Be assured your donation fosters profound differences in the lives of our individual campers as well as the larger communities where they will return.

Thank you again for your generous support!

Looking back on Summer, Planning ahead.

Dear Friends of Amnicon,

Thank you so much for your ongoing prayers and support of the ministry of this camp and all who come to it, as campers, as staff, as visitors.

Camp is a quiet place this time of year. The trees are bare and the cold winter is slowly creeping in. But from time to time we are joined by retreat and hermitage guests that bring more warmth and energy than we know what to do with! Fall at Amnicon is a wonderful site to behold.

The transition from our summer program to the retreat season has gone smoothly and now we are blessed to look back on the lives we have touched throughout the busy tripping season. Through the thoughtful giving of people like you, we were able to use campership funds to help over 100 young people see the image of God through wilderness experiences. For many this was their first opportunity to feel like a loved and valued member of a community.

As we look ahead to to the coming seasons the need for enriching the lives of the impoverished becomes strikingly evident. Camp Amnicon is host to a number of retreats for the homeless or those that are considered "at-risk". Providing large healthy meals, an environment of care and bellies full of laughter. A brief respite that makes a lasting difference in so many lives.

Because of your ongoing support, Amnicon continues to make new collaborations as well as maintain consistent relationships over many years. Many of those from these groups would not be able to afford an experience at Amnicon without the loving support and financial contributions of caring donors like you. Be assured your donation fosters profound differences in the lives of our individual campers as well as the larger communities where they will return.

Thank you again for your generous support!

In Christ,
