Recreation - Camps & Camping in Brainerd

Summer camps, day camps, learning camps, and play camps! We've got it all in the Brainerd Lakes Area. With a community that is home to dozens of lakes and woods, it's no wonder that Brainerd offers such a wide variety of outdoor activities for kids and children of all ages.

Many of the camps have a specialized theme to help kids who are going through tough times or changes, and some even include family activities, and growth opportunities so that your child not only gets to experience the fun and magic of the MN North Woods, but also gets to build character and skills.
