Rooted in Faith Tradition

We are a non-demoninational Christian camp that welcomes boys from all traditions.

Check out this video to catch a small glimpse into a week at Camp Nathanael.

Character-Shaping, Outdoor Adventure.
Far From Distraction, Close to God.

Camp Nathanael is a place where boys become men of God.

Every Christian parent wants their son to grow into an honorable young man who loves and follows Jesus. But it's tough for those values to compete against the distractions of entertainment, technology and cultural pressures.

We have programs for boys ages 5 through adulthood. We develop leaders by teaching them to love the Bible, be mentored by others who are more mature in their faith, and to put their faith into action by serving others.

What Parents Say About Camp Nathanael

"My son grew in the short time that he was at camp."

He didn't change in stature, but in maturity, and with a firmer grasp of being a young man of God. He felt safe and grew in confidence. He is looking forward to next year!"

— J.T., North Branch, Minnesota

"Camp Nathanael outshined them in the quality of staff and the atmosphere."

"I have experience at YMCA camps, and other church sponsored camps, which were all good, but Camp Nathanael outshined them. I would encourage anyone to bring their son here."

— Camp Parent
