About Spirit in the Pines: Est. 2001

Spirit in the Pines is owned and operated by St. Andrew. The property was purchased in 2001, and since then a wide community has grown with people coming from all over the west metro area. We host over 1000 people every summer. Last summer 45% were from St. Andrew, and there were people from over 20 different faith communities.

Spirit in the Pines is located about an hour north of Brainerd, Minnesota on beautiful Pleasant Lake. Summertime at Spirit in the Pines Camp is filled with age specific youth camp sessions during the week and family camp sessions on the weekends. Youth and adult retreats are held during the fall and winter months.
