The North Country Bears invite you to the return of a Summer favorite....

Bunkhouse Bear Camp

Sat, June 30th - Tues, July 3rd

the weekend after Minneapolis Pride!

Bunkhouse Bear Camp is almost here!

The Bear Camper info newsletter has been emailed to our 40 campers. If you can't find it, read it online.

After 10 years of hibernation, one of the North Country Bears' favorite events of years past is back: Summer Bear Camp! Celebrate your Independence the weekend before July 4th by running free in the woods!

  • No tents required! "Camp" in the comfort of a bunk in a small private cabin with your buddy! (Limit 80)
  • Three days of Lodging and Meals included for only $75!
    • Bacon-wrapped Stuffed Chicken
    • Roasted Pork Loin with Caramelized Sweet Potatos
    • Lasagna with Garlic Bread
    • Hot breakfast and lunches too!
    • **Please let us know of any dietary restrictions in advance and we will try to accommodate you!
  • Private campground near Hinckley in Minnesota's Saint Croix State Park
  • Private beach, volleyball, softball field, games, and more!
  • Movie nights in the main lodge
  • Nearby Casino in case of rainy days (30 min drive)

We've reserved the same beautiful Norway Point group center in Saint Croix State Park in Hinckley, Minnesota for our clan, about 2 hours from Minneapolis. All lodging, food and beverages provided (BYOB) for only $75 for the entire weekend, plus some easy camp volunteer time will be asked of you.

The Norway Point group center has 4 villages of sleeping cabins where each village having a mini-Lodge and a restroom/shower building, plus the site has large dining hall and a private beach down the road. A few extra buildings have power for CPAP bears.

All meals will be served in the giant dining hall, and some fun events will be planned. Bike trails abound and the park has canoes for rent, but mostly, this is a weekend to relax in the woods and on our private beach with your fellow bears, doing what comes naturally. Wi-fi is even available to ease those with technology separation-anxiety!

Sign up today! We're planning 2 per cabin, though they can sleep up to 8 if you have close friends (specify during registration). Limited to 80 bears 21 or older.

    Some things to bring:
  • Sleeping bag / bedding & pillows - the bunks have 4" mattresses. The bunks are only 6ft long, so if you are taller you may want to bring a single-size air mattress. If needed, there is more space in the mini-lodge or craft building.
  • bath and beach towels
  • waterproof bag for toiletries, shampoo, and other items
  • optional padlock for your footlocker
  • flashlight - Menards has a variety of cheap LED flashlights and lanterns
  • strong bug spray
  • any discreet alcoholic beverages (not technically allowed in state parks)
  • cards, board games, etc.
  • beach toys and air mattresses
  • "personal supplies"
  • USB charging cable for phones, etc. We'll have a charging station available, or use a car charger.
  • an umbrella or rain poncho... just in case!
