Join the Camp Knutson Community


Who We Serve

We serve campers with autism, Down Syndrome, heart disease, HIV or Aids, burn survivors, and youth experiencing homelessness. We also offer a week of camp for adults with mental health needs.


Why We Serve

Everyone should have the opportunity to be themselves, experience joy, & develop meaningful friendships. As volunteers, it is our privilege to befriend campers who have not always had the opportunity to be in situations where they are wholly accepted for who they are. It is a joy and an honor to be with them and to experience the joy they bring us in return.


How We Serve

We have volunteer opportunities ranging from behind the scenes administrative tasks to help leading programs and committees and everything in between. Not all volunteers work directly with campers or even on the grounds, but a lot of them do. Let us know what your strengths and passions are and we’ll find a place for you!


Where We Serve

Our beautiful, updated 30-acre campus is nestled between the pristine Minnesota waters of Lower Whitefish and Big Trout Lakes. It gives our campers an ideal space to be freely themselves and try new things. If you want to help create unforgettable experiences for our campers, we’d love to have you as a volunteer!
