West End Gazebo: Open for Conversation!

We're thrilled to finally enjoy a brand new gazebo on the west end of Camp. Women's Retreat guests have already taken advantage of the new place, which is perfect for relaxed conversation.
Fall Service Projects: Volunteers Needed!

There's a lot to be done as Camp transitions from fall into winter and we would sure appreciate your help!  There are opportunities available for families, individuals, and groups.  Please email info@camplebanon.org if you're interested!
VIDEO: 2017 Summer in 5 Numbers

Game On!  What an amazing summer it was. Watch the video as Rich gives a quick three minute recap of the summer. Lot of kids, a wonderful staff, and excellent speakers all added up to one fantastic summer!

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then we have millions of words to say about this past summer! Thousands of pictures were taken and countless moments were caught on camera. Here are 100 of our favorites from this past summer.

VIDEO: Mini Show Mash-Up!

Looking for one video to see what went on this summer at Camp?  Look no further, the Mini Show Mash-Up is here! All of our weekly mini shows combined into one. You can't help but smile, reminisce, and be touched! 
SUMMER STAFF: What a team!

Summer youth camps would not be possible without our summer staff team. Fulfilling roles in program, counseling, housekeeping, maintenance, kitchen, marketing, and other areas, the impact is huge!  From summer-long staff to those who help out for a week or two, these young men and women invest a lot of heart, time, and energy.  Summer staff of 2017, THANK YOU!  And for all of you who were praying for the team, thank you as well!

Horse rides at sunrise, wiffleball games, adventure hikes with dad, the last swim of the summer, and a sports-themed banquet - sometimes we wonder how we can possibly fit all of these fun things into our  Father-Daughter Retreat !  This retreat was such a joy to experience with all of these dads and daughters (& grandpas!).


Zipline, hymn singing, campfires, fellowship, and amazing food highlighted a wonderful Senior Day & Young at Heart Retreat.  Friends filled Camp and we took time to encourage one another in remembering "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God."

MEN Face the Tension Head On

Men's Retreat is known for being filled with fun activities and this year certainly did not disappoint (including a 70 person homerun derby!). Even more, the weekend combined fun with focused growth as eight different speakers dove in to eight tension-filled areas of life. The sessions and conversations with other guys left many men feeling encouraged and ready to fight for growth.

WOMEN Get the Chance to Just Breathe

During the last two weekends in September, Camp Lebanon welcomed over 400 women to meet with God and take a deep breath of fresh, Minnesota air. Whether they were participating in all of the activities, crafts, and workshops offered, or just resting in the quiet of their room or on the shore of Cedar Lake, the women were encouraged to use their time at Camp to meet with God and with each other.

NEW FRIENDS Make Life-giving Memories

Camp Lebanon made some brand new friends this fall!  Meet this fun group of seniors from Presbyterian Homes in the Twin Cities. Pontoon rides, campfires, sitting by the lake, and go-cart rides highlighted a wonderful time for these dear people to enjoy God's creation.
