Adult Winter Camp | March 4 – 7, 2021

Camp Northern Lights is a magical place for families in the summer, but this weekend is for the adults to enjoy all that winter has to offer and play hard.

Go at your own pace! Join others for some guided outdoor adventures or relax and unwind next to the fire in your cabin.

Staff will be leading a variety of guided adventures including cross-country skiing, fat tire biking and snowshoeing. All scheduled activities will be held on a sign up basis to ensure small groups that comply with the current social gathering guidelines.

The following equipment will be available to use at no extra charge.

  • Ice Fishing Gear (portable icehouse, auger, tip-ups and jigs)
  • Kick Sleds and Tubes *for our sledding hill
  • Cross country skis and snowshoes

Cabin Options (To request a specific cabin, please email daniel.obrien@ymcamn.org)

In accordance with the social gathering guidelines from the State of MN, we will be limiting each cabin to two households – meaning you will likely be able to have one roommate, of your choosing, per cabin, but no more (unless you already share a household with someone else coming to the retreat).

All cabins have Wi-Fi for those that need to work remotely or stay connected.

Cost: $300 per person
