Wilderness North - A Great Experience

Many of our training programs take place at Wilderness North, TENTMAKERS’ Training and Retreat Center in Brimson, Minnesota, north of Duluth in the Lake Superior National Forest.  (5740 Murphy Lake Road, Brimson, MN)

Participants have private accommodations in this wilderness setting to maximize solitude and concentration for study, reflection, planning and prayer. Hundreds of visitors and student campers have experienced the beauty, quiet, and recreational opportunities here as well as the feeling that Wilderness North is 'holy ground."

Facilities

Our Wilderness North facilities consists of a main log lodge with a loft library, meeting room and dining area; a shower/sauna house, the Olson & Sonstegard suites in the Evergreen Lodge (mentor lodge), eighteen individual log cabins, and a waterfront area.

Spiritual and Physical Rest

This is a place to experience spiritual and physical rest -- as well as outdoor adventures. You can swim, boat, or fish in private Lake Murphy, walk trails, play volleyball, pick raspberries, watch wildlife, or take a hot sauna. In the winter, cross-country skis, snowshoes, and ice skates are available.

Personal Retreat

Our Wilderness North Directors, Eric and Lynn Hofstad would be happy to host your group. Our facilities can also be rented for your own group retreat, family retreat, or personal solitude retreat!
