Pathways operates two properties in northern Minnesota: Camp Emmaus and Camp Minne-wa-kan. Please contact us if you are interested in renting our facilities for your group!

Camp Emmaus

Camp Emmaus is located just outside of Menahga, Minnesota. With over 340 wooded acres, Emmaus offers solitude and lots of space to explore. A network of nearly 10 miles of trails takes the adventurous to every corner of camp. Emmaus surrounds beautiful Lake Morgan. A small but deep lake, Morgan is spring fed and is periodically stocked with rainbow trout. Camp also has shoreline on Stocking Lake.

In the summer, Emmaus is bustling with campers of all ages. Our summer cabins will house up to 120. Emmaus also offers year-round retreat and conference facilities for groups of all types. Camp Emmaus is ideal for retreats, family reunions, banquets, and meetings. The Lodge can serve meals for groups up to 200 people, and there are sleeping accommodations for up to 30 with additional year round housing in Cabin Friendship.

Another unique opportunity at Camp Emmaus is the Challenge Course. Emmaus has a low ropes course – and we are able to partner with the Character Challenge Course Company in Park Rapids for high ropes. We encourage groups and our summer campers to take advantage of these team building activities within their programming. It is a great way for individuals and groups to learn more about themselves and supporting one another.

Camp Minne-Wa-Kan

Camp Minne-Wa-Kan encompasses 23 acres with nearly a half-mile of sandy shoreline on Lake Andrusia. One could canoe from Bemidji down the Mississippi to camp in about a day, but most people drive the 17 miles instead. Minne-Wa-Kan is surrounded by the tall trees of the Chippewa National Forest and located within the bounds of the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe Reservation. The waterfront is a highlight at Camp Minne-Wa-Kan with its canoes, kayaks and the swim beach.

Camp Minne-Wa-Kan is available for retreats and groups of all types from September through May.  Minne-Wa-Kan is ideal for groups looking for a peaceful place to get away and be refreshed. 

During summer, Minne-Wa-Kan is leased to Concordia Language Villages for Spanish Language Camp. Elementary through high school age campers come from all over the US to be immersed in Spanish culture and language.
