​Village Life and Location

Mori no Ike is located near Cass Lake, Minn., approximately three and a half hours from Minneapolis-St. Paul and twenty minutes from Bemidji, Minn.  We are in the early stages of fundraising to build a permanent facility in Bemidji, on the shores of Turtle River Lake.

Lodging and Accommodations

Cass Lake is located in northern Minnesota within the boundaries of the beautiful Chippewa National Forest, home to one of the largest populations of breeding Bald Eagles in the lower 48 states.

About Camp Minne-wa-Kan

Camp Minne-wa-Kan is a traditional summer camp built along the shores of Lake Andrusia. The cabins, dining hall, and group activity facilities are built out of logs with views of the lake.

  • Central bath buildings with showers and toilets
  • Activity building
  • Lakeside dining hall

Mori no Ike is a relaxed place.  All you'll need are shorts, t-shirts, sneakers, a swimsuit and a sweatshirt and jeans in case of a cool evening. There isn't much need for "dress up" clothing, but if you would like to bring some, there will be a banquet or dance night where you can show off your fancy duds. We'll send a packing list after you have registered. Please pack wisely as there is limited storage space.

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. Summer temperatures average 85 F but can get down to 55 F, so keep that in mind while packing!
