Summer Camp

Boy and Counselor

Camps at Camp Knutson


Children with special needs benefit from having a fun-filled camp experience while connecting with other young people who may share similar health, emotional, and social concerns.

Camp Knutson was donated in 1953 by Minnesota Congressman Harold Knutson to be used as a summer retreat for "neglected, unfortunate, deprived and handicapped children."

Today the purpose of the camp has been expanded and currently serves:
