This program is a great opportunity for kids and parents to experience camp together, make lasting memories, and have conversations about faith that you can take home.
At this 24-hour overnight camp, you will join a cabin of other kids and adults and make new friends, bond together, and grow in faith as you play games, worship, and hear stories about who God is, and how loved we are. You will get a chance to spend time unplugged with each other, in a faith-centered environment that encourages play, and individuality as an important part of community.

Note: As housing is in a shared cabin space, the program is designed for same-gender adult/child pairs. Housing may be available for mixed-gender pairs, but please contact the office (218-227-5107) before registering — housing options for mixed gender pairs is very limited when available and therefore not guaranteed.

Registration/Arrival: 2:30-3:30pm
Departure: 3:30pm

Schedule

Each schedule may differ slightly, but will center around core parts of the camp experience. There will be some times when the kids and adults will split up in order for the kids to have fun together and for the adults to relax and enjoy the beauty of camp while your kids are taken care of by our awesome staff.

CHOOSE YOUR TIER

Realizing that everyone has a different ability to pay, Pathways has instituted a voluntary 3 Tier fee structure for Camp Emmaus summer programs. You may choose the tier that is more suitable for your situation. It’s a free-will system; you tell us what is affordable for you and your family. All participants receive the same Emmaus experience no matter what they pay!

Tier 3

Corresponds to what it actually costs Pathways to provide summer programming.

$145

Tier 2

A partially subsidized fee for those who can pay a little more but still cannot afford the rate which represents the true cost of camp.

$125

Tier 1

A subsidized rate, it does not reflect the true cost of operating summer camp programs but is offered to ensure that all families have the opportunity to experience camp!

$110
