About Camp Amnicon

Camp Amnicon is a wilderness adventure camp that offers year-round wilderness trips, retreats, and hermitage. We are located on the south shore of Lake Superior, about a half-hour east of Duluth, MN. We are affiliated with the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church of America).

For over 50 years, our role in Christ’s mission has been to welcome everyone into unique experiences of community and adventure, equipping others to step outside their comfort zones and experience God’s grace.
