Our Beginnings

The seeds of Camp Dellwater were sown in 1972 when Larry and Gladys Erie turned their lives over to the Lord Jesus Christ and began to seek His will regarding their Lake Dellwater property. As the vision for a Christian camp grew and more people became interested, the Camp was incorporated as a non-profit, tax-exempt organization in 1974


Why We Are

The purpose of Camp Dellwater is to encourage people to develop a closer personal relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. We are committed to ensuring youth and families have the opportunity to experience camp and have their lives impacted for Christ.


Where We Are

Camp Dellwater consists of 53 acres of land with over 2500 feet of shoreline and a sandy beach on Dellwater Lake. We are located 27 miles NW of Bemidji, MN.


How We Are

Camp Dellwater exists because of the support of our volunteers and donors. Many of our campers could not afford to come to camp without this support.
Over the years, hundreds of people have invested their time and money to see lives impacted for Christ! We continue to rely on that type of support to see God’s plans fulfilled for the Camp.


Who We Are

Camp Dellwater is a non-profit, non-denominational Christian camp that ministers to people and their needs through a camp setting.


What We Are

Camp Dellwater is a host facility that provides a place for groups to conduct their own ministry programs for youth groups, kids camps, family reunions & camps, conferences and other events.


When We Are

Camp Dellwater is currently available for rental during the Summer and Fall, from Memorial Day through the fall season (weather dependent).
