Know Before You Go!
If you’ve never been to Cathedral of the Pines Camp, here are some details you should know before you head up!
Details about cancellations/refunds, payments, mail and care packages, lost and found, and phone calls can be found here.
We have contracted with Northfield Bus Lines for roundtrip transportation.
Each bus will have a minimum of two high school age counselors/workstaffers designated as bus supervisors, with authorization to ensure a safe and pleasant journey for all. All counselors/workstaffers will wear a special “Counselor” or “Workstaff” T-shirt, so that the Campers can identify them more readily.
Lunch is served upon arrival at Camp. Restrooms are available on each bus.
Health and Safety
The Camp health center is overseen by a Health Center Coordinator and a volunteer Health Professional. All Camp Staff are trained in First Aid and CPR, and are available to assist with Camper needs. General care and first aid supplies are available at Camp. For some other medical services, Grand Marais Hospital and Clinic is located approximately 30 minutes from Cathedral of the Pines. The nearest surgical facility is located in Duluth approximately two hours away. Please understand that the Grand Marais Hospital and Clinic accepts only limited insurance coverage. Any expenses incurred off Camp property are the responsibility of the family.
If your child is brought to an offsite facility, is prescribed medication, or should otherwise need any emergency care, the Health Professional or a Camp Staff member will contact you.
Cathedral of the Pines has upheld the same daily schedule since it’s induction in 1949.
