Pick your Camp Experience.
For 20 years, Prairie River Camp has provided a transformational environment to draw youth and adults to the heart of God. Through authentic relationships, shared experiences, outdoor challenges, and time of solitude, our goal is that our guests - young and old - will
encounter life transformation through Jesus Christ.
We hope to see you at Camp soon!
Located North of Bricelyn, Minnesota.
Prairie River Camp is beautifully located on the East fork of the Blue Earth River. Only twenty minutes from Thompson, Iowa, and two-and-a-half hours from the Twin Cities of Minnesota. Prairie River Camp feels like an adventure away from home and yet close enough to be a pleasant drive to those in Minnesota & Iowa.
Whether you are looking for programmed camps for youth, facilities for retreats or reunions, or exciting adventure activities, and everything in between. We have so much to offer! Check out the events calendar to see what's coming up.
My kids love it every year they have made friends that they look forward to seeing them. They chat online with those friends and a couple of the councilors all year leading up to camp. The camp is very pretty and the cabins are temperature controlled so no worries about being too hot or cold. I can't imagine sending them anywhere else. My adopted daughter went for the first time last year. She had never been away from me in the 18 months prior. She was a bit nervous at first. The councilors made her feel right at home. I got emailed a picture of her singing in front of the other campers. It was a huge step to her coming out of her shell. I can not express my gratitude enough. Also, they have scholarships which helped allow me to send my kids when I was just starting out as a single parent.
Had so much fun exploring even in the dead of winter. Got to see some pretty large cougar tracks too!
Our second year there camping with our American Heritage Girls troop. The facilities are fantastic and clean. The food is excellent. And the staff is superb. We are able to design a great program for our girls! Thank you so much!
