Preteen Camp Ironwood

July 11, 2021 to July 14, 2021

Camp Ironwood in southeast Minnesota welcomes campers to experience four days of fun-filled activities in a positive, loving and godly environment. Camp is held in the spectacular outdoor setting of Ironwood Springs Christian Ranch.

Camp activities are designed to enrich children spiritually and physically in a nurturing atmosphere. Our goal is to enhance children’s relationship with God and with others. Activities include daily Christian living, music classes, a zipline, swimming, horseback riding, field games, team challenge, a climbing wall, arts and crafts, archery/BB guns, slingshot, creek walk and slip-and-slide. Fun-filled evening activities include a carnival, campfire sing-along, Novelty Olympics, treasure hunt and Dancing with Jelly. It’s a busy four days, but full of memories to take home.

Preteen Camp Ironwood has a tradition for being a “family camp” with teens (ages 14-19) and parents serving together as staff. The activity staff strive to make sure each camper participates and enjoys each activity, but each teen staff is also a “big sister or brother” to campers, dropping in on their activities and lunches. Additionally, “dorm parents” visit dorms each evening for a short talk and prayer. 

Camp Ironwood endeavors to include the entire family. Parents who serve on staff and have a camper and a young child are able to bring the young siblings as well! Younger children (ages 3-5) can participate in the daytime mini dorm activities and stay overnight with mom and dad.

If you, your preteens or teens are looking for an exciting camp experience and enjoy the company of other young people striving to live God’s way, Camp Ironwood is for you! We look forward to seeing you this summer at Camp Ironwood!
