Best Camps Retreats in Minnesota

Minnesota’s climate is as extreme and varied as its landscape, with hot summers and bitterly cold winters. This great diversity of climate and land makes Minnesota a great place for a wide range of activities all year long.

There is a vast array of winter sports available during the long snowy months, like snow-shoeing, cross-country skiing, ice-climbing, and ice-fishing. The warmer months are perfect for taking advantage of the beautiful state parks for camping and hiking or the waters of Lake Superior for water skiing, fishing, and boating.

Some points of interest for Christian groups include:

Churches of St.Paul- Known as “The Saintly City,” St. Paul, Minnesota is home to many beautiful and historic places of worship such as: The Cathedral of St. Paul, Church of St. Agnes and St. John’s Church
