Youth Camp

The Minnesota Elks Youth Camp is a co-ed camp for deserving youth of Minnesota, ages nine through thirteen. Most campers are referred to local Elks Lodges by adults who know the child’s family. Persons knowing young people who otherwise would not have such an opportunity are urged to contact their nearest Minnesota Elks Lodge. The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks pay all necessary camp fees for campers. Members of your local Elks Lodges arrange transportation to and from the camp.

The camp setting includes about 270 acres of land on Pelican and Markee Lakes. The north woods atmosphere is prevalent with evergreen trees, fresh air, sunshine, wildlife, and a large sandy beach.

Programs and activities are planned to provide a fun-filled week and to enhance the campers’ love of the outdoors. Qualified staff members supervise all activities. In the unlikely event of personal injury, the camp has its own “Health House” and first aid equipment. Hospital facilities and a camp-assigned physician are just twenty minutes away in Brainerd, Minnesota. Any special medical needs should be noted on the camp physical form.

Campers receive a well-balanced diet through our Summer Food Service Program under the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Meals are served family-style in our attractive air-conditioned dining hall.

The Minnesota Elks Youth Camp does not discriminate against any person because of race, color, sex, national origin, age, or disability.

Youth Drug Awareness

Welcome to the resource center for the Elks National Drug Awareness Program – the largest volunteer drug awareness program in the United States. We are very proud of our dedicated army of volunteers who freely give their time and talents to this most noble cause.

The Elks are committed to eliminating the use and abuse of illegal drugs by all members of society and believe that in order to ensure a bright future for our country, it is essential that our children be raised in a drug-free environment.

ENF Program

The mission of the ENF is to help Elks build stronger communities. We fulfill this pledge by investing in communities where Elks live and work. We help youth develop lifelong skills, send students to college, meet the needs of today’s veterans, support the charitable work of the state Elks associations, and fund projects that improve the quality of life in local Elks communities.

Hoop Shoot

The Hoop Shoot has been developing gritty kids for 50 years. The Elks Hoop Shoot is a free throw program for youth ages 8-13
