Fall Retreats & Programs

Decorated in the blazing hues of autumn, the Island is at its most strikingly beautiful in the fall. The variety of birds passing through on their way south is amazing; the fawns are nearly as big as the doe; and the crispness in the air is refreshing.

Fall Retreats and Events


As creation begins its colorful change, the program offerings at Lutheran Island Camp and Retreat Center shift more to weekends--though we also have events during the week. To register for any of the events click on the "Retreat Registration" link on the left.

Check out some of our scheduled events for Youth, Adults, Families, College age and older  or one of our special events or workshops and training events. More events are being scheduled

Whether a planning retreat for the board of elders/church council or a retreat for families from your congregation, we’d love to have you enjoy a weekend with us on the Island. Costs depend on how many meals, one or two nights’ lodging, and what program options you may choose. Call 218-583-2905 or e-mail info@islandcamp.org to schedule a retreat.

Senior Day on the Island

Join us for Bible study, lunch, and a ride on our pontoon boat and /or a ride on a wagon drawn by one of our teams of horses—all while enjoying the tranquility of autumn on the Island and fellowship with other older adults. Consider brining your LWML, seniors group, LLL, couples club, or other group from your congregation.
Cost: $15 per person
Dates: Call to schedule a date that works for your group!
