CAMP TOUR & MAP
Ready for your Camp tour?
A virtual tour isn’t the same as touring in person (pictures don’t do this place justice) but this should give you a taste of what Camp Lebanon is like. One perk of a virtual tour is you can jump ahead! Feel free to skip ahead using the shortcuts below or just keep scrolling through the entire tour. Alright, let’s go! Oh, you’re welcome to print or view the Camp map as we go, too.
A virtual tour isn’t the same as touring in person (pictures don’t do this place justice) but this should give you a taste of what Camp Lebanon is like. Let’s go!
The first stop on our tour is a place we call “The Hub.” It’s called “The Hub” because Camp is very centralized in nature and everything reaches out from this middle location. It’s natural to begin here because this is where we will most likely meet you when you arrive. “The Hub” is host to our sand volleyball court, octoball (“gaga ball”) court, Canteen (candy shop), activity/craft center, main Chalet building, Office, raised bonfire pit, outdoor amphitheather, and more. If you were standing here in the summer you’d also hear campers down at the beach, see friends playing wiffleball, smell dinner cooking in the Chalet, and feel the warmth around a campfire. Soak it in. You made it to Camp. Let’s continue on our tour!
HOUSING & MEETING SPACE
Camp Lebanon offers housing that suits everyone – simple cabins with nearby shower buildings, comfortable dorms with community restroom/showers just down the hall, and hotel-style rooms with a full bath in every unit. Everything at Camp Lebanon is clean and well maintained, and staff members are ready and available to meet your every need. Let’s take a look at the different buildings.
Cedar Bay Lodge
Cedar Bay Lodge and Birch Point are Camp’s favorite adult and family housing facilities. There are 14 tastefully decorated hotel-style rooms in Cedar Bay Lodge and 4 more in Birch Point. Each room features a comfortable queen bed, XL bunk bed, roll-away, private bathroom with shower/tub combo, and a small sitting area (table and chair). The Cedar Bay Lodge meeting room (called the A-Frame) seats up to 70 and boasts a fieldstone wood-burning fireplace. The meeting room includes a sound system, Smart TV, and DVD player. “The Lodge” also includes a lower level recreation room and a kitchenette with a refrigerator, microwave, stove/oven, and coffee machine.
The Chalet – located in the heart of Camp’s site and just 35 feet from the lake – is home to the Dining Hall and Main Hall (Camp’s largest meeting room), as well as game rooms, lounge, spacious deck overlooking Cedar Lake, and the Camp Trading Post (gift shop). Serviced by a three-stop elevator, the Chalet’s upper level features six dorm-style rooms that sleep 6-12 each (total capacity 46). Each room is equipped with bunk beds, including one extra-long twin-over-double bunk, and its own private sink vanity. Showers and restrooms facilities are located just down the hallway.
The Chalet Main Hall has seating for up to 250, a spacious stage, excellent sound system, keyboard, projection screen, and stage lights. Great for all groups!
With a fresh, modern facelift in 2020 including a new kitchenette, Scandinavia might just have become Camp’s top housing destination. With accommodations for up to 49 guests, the facility offers two levels of housing, a large meeting room, and air-conditioning. The upper level includes three rooms that sleep twelve and a fourth room that sleeps up to three. The lower level features two rooms that sleep five each and a recently refreshed meeting/game room with a kitchenette, coffee station, and a fieldstone gas fireplace with seating for up to sixty. Both levels are served by centrally located shower and restroom facilities. Scandinavia is a much-enjoyed facility for youth groups, smaller adult groups, and the ever-popular family reunions.
Traditional cabin-style housing
Fifteen single-room cabins are Camp’s classic and budget friendly housing option. Cabins provide a comfortable and fun getaway experience for up to twelve people in a single room with five bunk beds and two extra-long singles. All cabins are climate controlled (heat/AC) and are just a short walk from modern, clean community shower houses. Recent efforts to add outdoor landscaping and more adult-friendly mattresses make these traditional favorites more popular than ever. The cabins are named after countries from around the world and are arranged alphabetically from Brazil to Zambia.
Vacation home style
Need to escape crazy? Camp’s log cottages provide the perfect place to enjoy a peaceful week-long vacation or a special weekend getaway on the shores of beautiful Cedar Lake. These two charming housekeeping units are adjacent to the main camp facilities and sleep four-to-six each. Nestled in a secluded, wooded setting, both cottages enjoy a gorgeous view of the lake and access to a separate dock and waterfront area. Each cottage has its own kitchen, loft, grill, firepit, and more. Cottages are available to rent from May through December.
5 Sites Available
Five full-service RV sites serve from full size RVs to tent campers. Amenities for each site include water, sewer, electricity, fire pit, and picnic table. A grass-covered yard overlooks scenic views. These sites are available for rent individually or as part of a group. Eagle’s Nest Rec Pavilion is located adjacent to the North 40 ball field and is a short walk to the RV park. Features of the Eagle’s Nest include a meeting area, non-commercial kitchen, bathrooms, showers, and laundry facilities.

The gazebo is ideal for small groups or as an additional meeting area for larger groups. Gorgeous elevated lakeside seating with beautiful lake views • Seating for up to 25 • Couches and Folding Chairs • Stone-faced gas fireplace • Smart TV and DVD player • Water cooler
Large Meeting Space
Situated on our North 40 field, Eagle’s Nest includes a meeting space, serving area, bathrooms, showers, and laundry facilities. The meeting space is large enough to fit 170 people. Great for a more excluded chapel space and also doubles as an excellent dodgeball facility.
BEAUTIFUL SITE & CREATION
Camp Lebanon has been blessed with beautiful grounds and an abundant opportunity to witness God’s Creation at its best! It’s not unusual to spot a deer, or a beaver, or a barred owl on a hike along our trails. Trek out to The Point or to Sunset Cove right around dusk, kayak into Turtle Bay to catch a sun-bathing turtle, or walk (quietly) onto the Beaver Boardwalk to see if you can spot the busy inhabitants of our very own beaver dam. Check out our amazing creation photo gallery!
Swim it. Boat it. Fish it. People love, love, love Cedar Lake! No matter where you’re housed on Camp’s peninsula, the lake is always close by. Fish-filled, spring-fed Cedar Lake is a 253-acre lake located in southwest Morrison County. With its clear water and considerable depth (88′ max, 39′ mean), Cedar is one of central Minnesota’s top water quality bodies and gets cleaner as the summer progresses. Guests all ages enjoy a spacious waterfront equipped with waterslides, water mats, and a deep water diving raft. Boasting thirty-one species of fish, guests’ favorite fishing targets are sunfish, crappies, walleye, pike, and largemouth bass. While many guests bring their own boats, Camp’s fleet includes canoes, pedalboats, kayaks, corcls, sailboats and pontoons.
Camp is the home of the “funnest fun!” Our wide variety of activity options is one of the best parts of being here. So whether you’re looking for some adventure, action or relaxing, there’s something for you. Here’s a list of SOME of the activities we offer at Camp Lebanon: Zipline, laser tag, nerf wars, swimming, boating, hiking, fishing, crafts, wiffleball, octoball, bonfires, swinging chairs, frisbee golf, basketball, broomball, ice skating, winter curling, snow tubing, hockey, table games, billiards, team building, and archery are just some of the things that you can enjoy at Camp!
