Flaming Pine Youth Camp 19803 State Hwy 1

Flaming Pine Youth Camp takes its name from the days when natives roamed the forests of Northern Minnesota. The fall foliage of brightly colored hardwoods mixed with the evergreens was and still is a captivating sight; an ideal setting for seeing the splendor of God.
Worshipping God and studying His word are the focal points of all activities at FPYC. There are Bible studies, devotionals around the campfire, and worship in the lodge. Singing hymns of praise and devotion is always a part of Christian camping.
Picnics, cookouts, campfire programs, treasure and scavenger hunts, and crazy olympics add to the fun. Or how about a game of capture the flag? For a change of pace, the crafts center will be open. Painting, metal sculpture, wood carving, plaster and wood plaques, beads and lacing are only a sample of the things to do.
Sports are also a part of any camp experience. There is volleyball, basketball, softball, soccer, tetherball, and ping pong. On the lake there is swimming, fishing, boating, canoeing and sailing.
Since the camp is located in the center of the George Washington State Forest, there are many opportunities for hiking and nature study. Canoe trips and overnight camping are high points of the camping experience at FPYC.

Alaskan Malamute Iditarod Team - Nancy Russell, owner of Storm Kloud Kennel in Sussex, Wisconsin, dreamed of having an Iditarod team ever since the race started in 1973. Nancy met musher Jamie Nelson of Togo, Minnesota, at a freight race in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin, in 1987. Shortly after, she sent two dogs to Jamie to be trained as lead dogs. In 1989, Nancy took a litter of six puppies to Jamie to develop into a team for promotional purposes. Jamie was impressed with the working ability of the Malamutes and the idea of an Iditarod team became a real possibility.
