Due to COVID-19, ERM is working with Stearns County and the State of MN to ensure the safety of our campers and staff when planning activities. We are hopeful that we will be able to host activities as usual, however, we are asking that our campers be flexible as some activities may be cancelled or changed to adhere to COVID protocols. Follow us on Facebook or give us a call for more up to date information on activities throughout the 2022 season. 
Thanks for your patience and cooperation!
