Not familiar with Mount Carmel? This would be a great way to experience what we do here and how your family and ministry can benefit.

We are an independent family camp and conference center, founded by the Lutheran Bible Institute of Minneapolis in 1938. We became independent in 1988, and continue to serve Lutherans and others in our mission to help people experience Jesus through this vital outdoor family ministry.

We look forward to seeing you this summer!


Mount Carmel is a place for rest, renewal, and recreation where people experience Jesus.
