COFA (Christian Outdoor Fellowship of America) is offering the getaway of a lifetime in the great state of Minnesota. Where you will experience some of the greatest walleye fishing in the US located in the heart of North Central Minnesota, plus some great scenery and wildlife.  This trip is open to singles, couples, and families!

Come to the Northern Minnesota Lakes region for a Fall Retreat with COFA.  We will be lodging in cabins and dining at Camp Oak Hills on Lake Marquette south of Bemidji, MN (home to Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox).  The local lakes we fish hold some of the nation’s largest walleye, northern pike, and musky.  You will get a chance to fish, trade stories, and take some great pictures.



At COFA Fall Retreat you will:

  • Catch Fish and become a better angler (unless you only sit on the dock and drink really good camp coffee).
  • Grow in your relationship with God.  If you choose, move forward from wherever you are in your spiritual journey; whatever point you are in your life.  All are welcome.
  • Be a part of meeting and making some potential life-time friends with other outdoor enthusiasts.
  • Probably get out-fished by Dan.  At one point, we had 5 Dans in camp.  A couple of them are really good anglers - The rest are just really good people.
  • Eat great food and enjoy some delightful fish fries from our catches.  All meals (Breakfast/Lunch /Dinner) are provided with your Registration.
  • Come away with reunion and new acquaintances from around the country; memories of a lifetime; rare experiences and special blessings found from this adventure in the Land of Paul Bunyan.
