Camp Emmaus Retreats

Camp Emmaus is located just outside of Menahga, MN. Emmaus offers year-round retreat and conference facilities for groups of all types in a peaceful and pristine setting. Camp Emmaus is ideal for retreats, family reunions, banquets, and meetings. The Challenge Course at Camp Emmaus also opens up possibilities for team building retreats.


Though only two miles from town, Camp Emmaus gives one the feeling of total seclusion. Camp’s 340 acres of pine and oak forest make it easy to relax and enjoy a slower pace of life. Emmaus surrounds beautiful Lake Morgan, which is stocked with Rainbow Trout, and there is additional shoreline on Stocking Lake. A network of hiking trails leads to every corner of camp. Hikers with sharp eyes frequently spot deer, grouse, and even eagles.
