The Camp Christopher Story

Camp Christopher is an 11 acre river property near Cotton, MN and we want to offer it to those who have been impacted by suicide or mental illness for camping. Whether you have lost a loved one to suicide, have been impacted by those who struggle with mental illness or you yourself struggle with mental health, please know this place is meant for you for some time of reflection, healing and peace. It has electricity but no water. Close to Sax-Zim Bog which is one of the nation's premier birding areas and 40 minutes from Duluth and the North Shore. No cost unless you wish to make a donation to in memory of my brother Chris or a loved one that you want to honor.
