Our Partnership Model
Camp Knutson partners with other organizations to host camps for children and adults with disabilities, medical conditions or other identified needs. This partnership model holds true during our camping season as well when we partner with other organizations, businesses or community groups to host retreats, meetings, and other gatherings. We provide a full programming experience for camps and work with retreat groups to determine the level of program support that we can offer.
Our facilities are fully accessible and medically sound to provide a safe camping experiencing for all campers and retreat participants.
Our partner organizations handle camper registration, individual camper support, and medical support during camp. Programming is provided in collaboration with Camp Knutson staff to offer activities that best meet the needs of each camper. Activities might include archery, horseback riding, boating and swimming, arts and crafts, outdoor games and much more. Camp Knutson provides a medically-sound environment, fully accessible facilities, supportive programming and an inclusive, welcoming community.
Our beautiful lakeside facilities are the ideal place for fun, healing and creating new friendships!
