Sounds of the Northwoods: A Festival and Fundraiser for Camp

Since 2011, the community has been gathering on the shores of Lake Vermilion to listen to amazing music while lifting up the mission and programs at Camp Hiawatha and Camp Vermilion. Now in 2023, we are expanding our horizons with the Sounds of the Northwoods Festival and Fundraiser for Camp!
