Operating 12 months out-of-the-year, we provide several summer camp sessions for kids as well as host a wide variety of retreat groups ranging from 1-300 guests in the fall, winter and spring.

Winter 2014 is nearly full and we’re already taking calls for spring and summer 2014 retreats and rental camps! God has great things in store for Big Sandy Camp and for your group! Dig out that 2014 calendar now and start to get your dates set.
Big Sandy Camp is honored to host the 2014 Minn-E-Dakotas Sectional Conference, February 2-5, 2014.
This will be a great time for info sharing, exploring new vendors and getting a recharge for summer 2014. Plans are underway, so camp ministry folks, plan to attend. Please contact Tate at email@example.com or call him at 218-426-3389 for more details.
This is your official request. We need you here next summer! Spend a week here as a Camp Pastor, emceeing chapels, supporting and ministering to our summer staff and hanging out with campers. It’s a great break from the normal routine and helps bring your church into the camp loop. We would also like to have a Camp Pastor here during staff training week (June 1-6) as we prepare the summer staffers for camp ministry. It’s our goal to have a camp pastor here every week of camp. Give Tate a call today and get signed up!
Summer Camp 2014 dates are posted and our brochures are in the works. Click in the yellow box (above) for a look at our 2014 camp schedule.

Our First Couples Retreat was a Great Success!
There was lots of time to connect and reflect in the quiet of the north woods. Our speakers Cory and Amy Stout were right-on and the couples were treated to a banquet and concert.
Here are just a few on the many comments we received.
“This weekend has been life-changing, thank you!”
“Our marriage was taken out of the dark and new life given to us.”
“The best thing was spending quality time with my spouse”
Just in case you missed out this year, we will be doing this retreat again next fall, October 24-26, 2014. Please stay tuned for details. This event was sold out, so keep and eye on this web site and sign up early!
Retired, But Not Tired?
Many seniors have RV’s and like to travel the country. We have seen some interest in volunteers that like to park here for a week or two or three and volunteer here at Big Sandy Camp. We also have some limited lodging available for volunteers so, it’s worth a call. We can always use some help in maintenance, craft shop, gift shop and other projects. Call the camp office at 218-426-3389 for more information. We’d love to have you join the team!
