New in 2020 – Cabin Rentals Available
Over the past few months we have faced unprecedented challenges and have had to make difficult decisions. From cancelling summer camp to furloughing staff, we have all felt the weight of the COVID-19 pandemic. As restrictions are gradually being lifted and new guidance is being provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), and other local and state agencies, we are excited to share with you a new opportunity for you to get involved with True Friends.
We are now offering cabin rentals for small groups and families with up to 10 people. We are now taking reservations for August – November for our Lakeside and Rotter cabins at Camp Courage. We have also opened up cabins at Camp Friendship, including our new Trumpeter Swan and Pelican cabins. The Dormitory at Camp Eden Wood is now available for rental and is perfect for a getaway in the Twin Cities’ backyard.
Take a break and enjoy a moment of relaxation surrounded by nature and the beautiful Cedar Lake or Clearwater Lake. With miles of outdoor trails and recreational spaces, not to mention the most beautiful sunrise and sunsets over the lake, your stay will be relaxing and give you time to reconnect with your friends and loved ones.
