This retreat is sponsored by the Immanuel, Mankato congregation. We’re excited for our talented group of Christian counselors and presenters with pastor-led devotions.  We will have an onsite nurse and lifeguard and immediately available transportation off-site if needed.

Camp will begin Wednesday evening, August 2nd.  Check-in will be 5:00-6:00 pm.  We will wrap up by 12:00pm on Sunday, August 6th.

Camp FAHOCHA is located about 20 miles NE of Mankato, MN on German Lake.  Attendees will be responsible for getting to Beaver Dam Resort which is the pontoon pick up point.  Please consider carpooling or getting dropped off, as there is not a lot of parking.  More info will be sent to registered attendees.

We will be shuttled to the island on pontoons.  Please consider this as you pack!

There are many activities available on the island including swimming, hiking, canoes, paddleboats, indoor games, and many more!




The camp will be considered “rustic” by some.  There are male and female flush toilets as well as 2 showers in each restroom.  The main lodge has kitchen and meeting spaces for us.  All meals and snacks will be provided.

The camp has small cabins for our attendees that can house 5.  Please be aware that the provided beds are “cots.”  Sleeping bags will work best on these.  Single air mattresses will be allowed, provided you bring your own way of inflating it.

If you are interested in tenting, please contact the organizers.  You would need to provide your own equipment.




Cost of the camp is $125.00.  Please write checks to Immanuel Lutheran Church.  After registering, you will receive a permission form to sign.
