Minnesota Elks Youth Camp
The Minnesota Elks Youth Camp is a co-ed camp for deserving youth of Minnesota, ages nine through thirteen. Most campers are referred to local Elks Lodges through adults who know the child's family. Persons knowing young people who otherwise would not have such an opportunity are urged to contact their nearest Minnesota Elks Lodge. The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks pay all necessary camp fees for campers. Members of your local Elks Lodges arrange transportation to and from the camp.
The camp setting includes about 270 acres of land on Pelican and Markee Lakes. The north woods atmosphere is prevalent with evergreen trees, fresh air, sunshine, wildlife and a large sandy beach.
Programs and activities are planned to provide a fun-filled week and to enhance the campers' love of the outdoors. Qualified staff members supervise all activities. In the unlikely event of personal injury, the camp has its own "Health House" and first aid equipment. Hospital facilities and a camp assigned physician are just twenty minutes away in Brainerd, Minnesota. Any special medical needs should be noted on the camp physical form.
Campers receive a well balanced diet through our Summer Food Service Program under the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Meals are served family style in our attractive air-conditioned dining hall.
The Minnesota Elks Youth Camp does not discriminate against any person because of race, color, sex, national origin, age or disability.
