Kowakan Adventures is part of Camp Minnesota, a non-profit organization with camps and outdoor ministry opportunities around the state. We offer an enormous variety of events that help bring joy to people's lives and build a connection with Christ, Community and Creation.

Camp provides an unparalleled experience for children and youth to learn teamwork, gain independence, try new things, and enjoy the outdoors. Camp Minnesota takes the camp experience one step further by allowing young people to develop a deeper relationship with God and see how God is at work in their lives and the world around them.

Kowakan's Mission is, “To provide quality wilderness experiences with God, leading to Christian discipleship and stewardship of creation.” It is our goal as a ministry to be the premier and most accessible Christian wilderness program in the United States

We are blessed to have the BWCAW/Quetico area so close and want to enable others to experience high-quality trips at an affordable rate.

We have the equipment, the expertise, the facilities, and the desire to be in ministry with you. The BWCAW gives us a rare opportunity to enjoy what God has given us through nature. Through this ministry you can visit a portion of the over a million acres of unspoiled island-dotted lakes surrounded by lush forest areas that are accessible only to paddlers. We want you to more than "survive" the BWCAW, we want you to experience it fully, with all of your senses, and to have the best experience possible.


We are ACA accredited

Camper health and safety and overall program quality are very important to us, and very important to parents. ACA is a rigorous accreditation process that helps us go above and beyond with our commitment to providing you with the best experience possible. Learn more.
