Camp Unistar

Cass Lake, Minnesota

Camp Unistar is a campground located in Cass Lake. Camp UniStar is a camp for Unitarian Universalist individuals and families and other like-minded people. It is located on Star Island in Cass Lake, a part of the Chippewa National Forest in northern Minnesota. During the season, camp offers ten family weeks with various programs, a work week, two youth weeks, Boundary Waters canoe trips, and September group retreats. The lake encourages water activities; the forest trails attract hikers; sunrises and sunsets invite meditation. Each year UniStar campers return for peace, quiet, and serenity to an island retreat with no roads or commercial enterprise. Star Island even has its own lake, Windigo, acknowledged in Ripley's Believe It or Not series as "the lake in the island in the lake."

Camp UniStar is a gift donated in 1961 by the Anderson family of Houston, Texas, to the Prairie Star District of the Unitarian Universalist Association. The rustic facilities include Anderson Lodge, Clagett Dining Hall, staff quarters, five cabins, and a tenting area. Camp capacity is 70 campers housed in sleeping rooms in the cabins and the upstairs of the Lodge, or in the tenting area. The Lodge has a large porch, double fireplace, lots of room for relaxing, reading, rocking, and talking. The Dining Hall is also used for children's programs, dancing, and music making. The Marg Weaver Kitchen provides wholesome, delicious, plentiful food. Each cabin is equipped with a fireplace, a simple kitchen, sleeping rooms, and a shared bathroom with a tub with hot water. Shower houses are also available in the cabin and tenting areas. Dress is casual. Campers bring their own personal bedding and towels; pillows are provided; blankets on request. The camp is a member of CU2C2, the Council of Unitarian Universalist Camps and Conferences.
