Wilderness North 

Many of our training programs take place at Wilderness North (click on "Wilderness North" for link to the Wilderness North Web Site), 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 a sense that Wilderness North is 'holy ground."


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 on 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

We would be happy to host your group. Our facilities can be rented for your own group retreat, family retreat, or personal solitude retreat!
