Koronis Ministries offers a beautiful lakeside retreat center for groups of 3-300, plus an accredited summer youth camp for kids aged 6-18 located in our 185-acre woods. 

At our historic (begun in 1922) Retreat Center on the shores of stunning Lake Koronis, your church or family group can come together in a place of natural beauty and refreshment. Our facilities feature a variety of lodging styles to suit every taste and budget, plus state-or-the art meeting facilities can be right-sized to your group's needs.  In addition, our lakeside setting offers four seasons of outdoor activities, plus a gym and game room as a place for fun no matter the weather.  We'll do the cooking too, with delicious buffet-style meals cheerfully served in Lakeside Dining Room. Our rural setting feels a world away from the daily grind, but we're conveniently located just 90 minutes from the Twin Cities. 

For kids, our accredited summer residential kids camp, Camp Koronis, has been a place of fun and adventure for over six dacades!  Campers live in rustic cabins immersed in our 185-acre woodlands. The days are filled with activities kids love like archery, fishing, swimming, nature arts & crafts, boating, fishing, sports, campfires, sleep-outs, s'mores, horseback riding, and much more, led by our highly trained staff committed to safety, faith, and the individual worth of each camper. Camp programs range from two-day "teddy-bear camps" for our youngest campers (ages 6-9) to week-long camps for 9-13 year-olds, as well as a special high-energy week just for teens.
 
We are driven to excellence by our mission: To provide programs, facilities and activities to invite people experience Christ, Creation and Community.

See the joy, the connections, the growth
