Summer 2020: COVID-19 Cancellations

Deep Portage has made the difficult decision to cancel all overnight summer camps for the Summer 2020 season. We feel we cannot provide a physically and emotionally safe experience for our campers, staff, and families due to the potential risks of COVID-19.

We are exploring options to provide opportunities for firearms safety field days and other day programming. Visit the MN DNR’s webpage for information on what the DNR is doing regarding firearms safety this year. 


While we are saddened we can’t hold camps this year, we will be spending our time planning and developing new ideas to make 2021 the best summer ever.

For those who have already paid a deposit for 2020 camps, there are two options:

  • Roll over your deposit for Summer 2021 or Summer 2022.

  • Receive a full refund.

Please email or call Deep Portage at (218) 682-2325 to let us know what you'd like to do.


Although we can't welcome you to camp this summer, our trails remain open to everybody. We encourage you to enjoy the woods, water, and wildlife of Deep Portage. Please follow social distancing guidelines by remaining at least 6 feet away from other visitors. Thank you, and enjoy your visit!
