Camp Knutson is a supportive, medically-sound camp for individuals with disabilities, medical conditions and other identified needs. We partner with other organizations to host camps for youth and adults with identified needs such as autism, heart disease, skin conditions, Down syndrome, burn survivors, HIV/AIDS and youth experiencing homelessness.

Our beautiful, updated 30-acre campus is nestled between the pristine waters of Lower Whitefish and Big Trout lakes. Open year-round, our modern facilities and beautiful north-woods setting make us the perfect location for retreats, conferences, social gatherings, meetings or training events September through May.

COVID-19 Update: The past few months, our Camp Knutson leadership team, along with our Camp Partners, has been busy determining the safest path forward for this summer. After considering recommendations from the CDC, Minnesota Department of Health and American Camp Association we have decided to cancel all our summer camp sessions this year. As difficult as this decision was, we know it is the right decision to keep our campers, staff, and volunteers safe. We will be making every effort to connect with our entire camp community from a distance to help support each other through this time.  We appreciate your patience and understanding. We are looking forward to welcoming our community back next summer.  

Your support to Camp K matters more than ever. We will be hosting our Night Under the Stars (July 18th) and Quilt Auction (August 8th) in a virtual format to allow everyone to participate safely.
