Congregation Camps

Bring your church friends with you for a week or weekend to experience Pilgrim Point!



A tier-scale payment system for congregation camps. 

The 2014 building rate fees are based on a tier-scale, with the lowest rate being offset by approximately 40% and the highest rate offset by 20% thanks to Friends of Pilgrim Point contributions and the Ashley Endowment. This is allowing camp to be more accessible for more of our congregations – and we’re really excited about that. When filling our your reservation, please choose the payment level that fits your congregation best.

A flexible and customizable plan for programming. 

Congregations of the Minnesota Conference UCC are invited to sponsor a week or weekend at Pilgrim Point. Each day we provide two all-camp, cross-generational programs – and are willing to work with you to make them as meaningful as possible for your congregation. We offer worship planning and support for the Vesper’s leadership (done once a day as all-camp), providing as little or as much of the worship or music you request. Don’t worry, there will still be plenty of time for relaxing, playing at the beach on one of our new water slides, playing in the ball field or creating your own experiences!

Check out the Reservation Form for lodging and rate information.

On the back you can find procedures on how to make a successful reservation. Please read through this carefully before submitting your application. Contact Zac at for available dates or other questions.
