Elevate is going to summer camp!
Welcome! We are super excited to partner with both Camp Shamineau and Trout Lake Camp to offer summer camps for Elevate kids in grades 1-5. Both camps have created incredible programs and activities for kids to grow in their faith and build relationships throughout the week.
Activities include swimming, rock climbing, cabin activities, zip lining, playing ballfield games, and an incredible daily chapel time!
Trout Lake Camp
July 9-15, 2023
Pine River, MN
Wild Woods: Completed Grades 1, 2 or 3
The Point: Completed Grades 4, 5, OR 6
*This week at 'Wild Woods' for 1-3rd graders at Trout Lake Camps is a "short" week, meaning there is a session which begins Sunday and ends Wednesday, and a session which begins Wednesday and ends Saturday. There are full weeks available throughout the summer as well, please contact the camp with any questions.
Aug. 6-11, 2023
Tenderfoot: Completed Grades 1 or 2*
Note: While we promote these two weeks of camp, both Shamineau and Trout Lake Camps run all summer long! If you are unable to make it to either of these two weeks, or if they have filled up, you are welcome to register for another week during the summer.

Campers will be dropped off at camp on Sunday, and picked up on Friday for Shamineau, and picked up on Saturday for Trout Lake. On the final day at both camps, parents and guardians picking up their kids are invited to join them for a closing chapel, after which all kids will be dismissed to pick up their belongings.
When you register, you will enter the names of those who are allowed to pick up your kid from camp. Anyone not listed on the registration form will not be able to pick up your kid.
Eagle Brook will not be providing transportation to camp or returning. Families are responsible for dropping off and picking up their kids at camp. You may want to carpool with another family to cut down on how much you have to drive.
All camp staff have been background-checked, vetted, trained in working with kids, and hired for the purpose of leading and counseling elementary-aged kids. For security reasons, non-camp staff, including parents, are not permitted to be on-site at camp. If a family emergency arises during the week, parents must check in at the front desk of camp, where someone will page their kid(s).
Both Camp Shamineau and Trout Lake Camps have a professional nurse on camp at all times, as well as several EMT’s and other medically trained staff. Each of the counseling staff is also trained for emergencies.
If a child needs medication, it must be noted on the registration form, and given to the nurse at drop-off. The camp nurse will connect with kids as often as needed to distribute their medication. Kids may not carry their own medication, aside from special circumstances such as inhalers.
Campers’ money is kept in a “Camper Bank,” which is maintained by camp’s full time staff. This prevents it from being lost or taken. Campers may withdraw money if they want to buy something, and any money remaining at the end of the week will be sent home with the parents.
Both camps work to accommodate all of kids’ health needs when it comes to food. Gluten free and dairy free options are provided, and drinking water is strongly encouraged at each meal.
Eagle Brook does not offer financial assistance for those attending these camps, but both camps have some financial assistance available. If you have questions about assistance, contact the camp directly to learn about their options and the application process.
