North Star Camp

Back to Gatherings

As early as the 1930s there was talk of a Seventh-day Adventist camp for the youth of Minnesota.  By the summer of 1937, the discussions became a reality when the first camp session was held July 22-25 at Mission Farms on Medicine Lake about ten miles northwest of Minneapolis.  By 1938, it was being termed as “North Star Camp” and was held at Sunset Glow Assembly in Brainerd.  North Star Camp became an annual event which was held at various locations throughout the years.  Eventually, it was decided that the Minnesota Conference needed to have a permanent home for the camp.  Read the story below of how the current North Star Camp became a reality!
