First purchased in 1958, Camp Christmas Tree is just 30 minutes west of Minneapolis in Mound, MN. We are on 30 acres of land with horse pasture, an animal barn, garden archery ranges, a playground, and a climbing tower. We are also fortunate to be on a peninsula, strutting out into beautiful Dutch Lake, which campers enjoy swimming, canoeing, and kayaking in.
