Camp & Retreat Center
Camp Knutson is a welcoming, inclusive camp for youth and adults with disabilities, medical conditions and other identified needs. We celebrate each participant and help campers build friendships, recognize their strengths, gain self-confidence and identify skills to help them realize their goals.
We are open year-round, operating as a retreat center September through May. Our beautiful, lakeside setting, and modern amenities are the perfect spot for a retreat, conference, meeting, celebration or other social gathering.
Founded in 1953 after Congressman Harold Knutson donated his summer vacation property in honor of his mother who had a passion for helping individuals with special needs and assisting those less fortunate. Over 65 years later, Camp Knutson remains dedicated to nurturing the well-being of persons with disabilities, medical conditions and other identified needs.
Camp Knutson partners with other organizations to provide high quality, fully accessible residential camping opportunities.
