Space is limited to 15 campers. Once registered you will be sent an itinerary, more detailed information, and a list of what items you should bring to camp in a series of emails over the course of the next few weeks.

We are offering an early-bird registration fee of $400 until October 31st. After that the fee for the weekend will be $450.


Camp fee includes:

  • Single occupancy room at Campfire Bay Lodge

  • Two dinners and two breakfasts cooked by Chef Dan (that’s right, the hubs is a chef)

  • Supplies to make one felted bowl

  • Swag! Is it even a retreat without swag?



Minimum of 10 campers. In the unlikely case that we cancel the retreat due to too few participants, a full refund will be given. 

Cancellation information can be found here.

And now please enjoy a few photos of some projects we did at the most recent Camp & Create.

Have you wanted to spend more time outdoors in the woods but aren't quite sure where to start? Do you enjoy learning new things? Are you creative or would you like to be? If you answered yes to any of these questions Knitting In The Wild's Camp & Create is the place for you.

Set in Minnesota State Parks or other close to nature venues, Camp & Create weekends are small groups of people getting together to enjoy good company, great food and make pretty things. With a campy vibes but no tents, Camp & Create has been designed to provide the space in order for you to get outdoors, enjoy nature, feed your creativity, and maybe ignite

a new passion.

Currently Camp & Create weekends are usually opened about 120 days before camp. These are not at giant retreat centers and as such they are more of a pop up retreat. So check back often and fill out the form below to get on our email list so you can be the first to hear about new weekends.




Knitting In The Wild Camp & Create weekends have been designed to provide the space and campy vibe for you to get outdoors, enjoy nature, and tap into the creative side of yourself. Normally we stay in camper cabins at State Parks but for this winter edition of Camp & Create we will be staying at the very adorable Campfire Bay Resort. The mission is to bring like-minded people together, close to nature, to become friends, share, learn and inspire!


The weekend is geared towards creativity! Since the weather in Minnesota in January can be slightly unpredictable, we will be staying in the duplex cabins of Campfire Bay Resort and crafting in their lodge. Every camper will get their own room but we will all share common spaces with others. We will have plenty of space to work on our project, laugh, and tell stories. Campfire Bay Resort is on Fish Trap Lake in Cushing, MN so bring your snowshoes or cross country skis if we have snow. The views will be worth it!
