Our Site: Lago del Bosco

Lodging and Accommodations

Lago del Bosco is located at Camp Holiday. The Fraser family began Camp Holiday as a private girl’s camp in 1922, and they have continued their careful maintenance through several generations. The buildings and grounds have been well maintained and upgraded over the years to cherish the “camp” atmosphere and also accommodate modern needs.

The main swimming beach is situated on Baby Lake and provides a wonderful view of scenic northern Minnesota. There is a beautiful swimming area, and the waterfront is full of different activities for the villagers.

Lago del Bosco’s simple (no electricity) and cozy cabins create a nice sense of community and all face into a large, flat, grassy area. Each can accommodate ten villagers and two counselors, with small cupboards for the villagers’ possessions. Cabins are usually the first place villagers will get to know other people at camp, and cabin life is an important part of the Lago del Bosco experience.

Buon appetito! Lunch in our rustic trattoria (dining hall). 

Villagers get a good opportunity to talk about their days at Lago del Bosco. A favorite among many villagers is the sauna (a Minnesota tradition) and some make it something of a ritual to use it every day! Counselors take turns lighting a fire in the woodstove so that the sauna can be nice and hot for   a dip in the lake as the sun sets.

The sports field is perhaps the most well-used area of camp. It consists of a flat, grassy area often referred to as “the soccer field,” but it’s also used for Frisbee, bocce and other games and activities. There’s also a volleyball court where fun matches of roverino take place!  

Minnesota is typical of a continental climate. The North Woods of Minnesota experience the widest variety of weather in the United States. Each of the four seasons has its own distinct characteristics. Although summers are generally hot and humid, it is normal to experience rain showers, thunderstorms and cool nights. Temperatures average 85 F but can get down to 55 F, so keep that in mind while packing!
