Camp Butwin is located on Lake O'Brien on 88 wooded acres and surrounded by Lebanon Hills County Park in Eagan, Minnesota. Children play in a safe, stimulating setting and use a heated outdoor swimming pool, a lake with a boating area and a sandy beach, a ropes course and climbing tower, softball and soccer fields, an archery range, and areas for crafts, nature, and theater.
As a CIT, you’ll be a role model for younger campers, develop your skills as a counselor, bond with other teens and make new friends. CITs are mentored by senior Camp Butwin staff and have field trips, evening activities and overnights throughout the summer.
