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 families. We are taking reservations from now until the end of the year for select cabins at Camp Friendship.

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.

To reserve your cabin today email retreats@truefriends.org or call 952.852.0104.

To be so close to our homes in the metro but feel so far away from "it all" was an amazing experience.

We had a wonderful time at our weekend convention. I want to thank Gina our host and the staff at your kitchen. We've used various facilities but yours is distinct. We thank you for giving us such great service.
