State Camporee

Chairman Roger Coudron Family Programs

We welcome you to the 30th Annual MN Knights of Columbus State Camping weekend

~ Also known as the KC Camporee ~

August 23-25, 2024 at the Brookside Campground near Blooming Prairie, MN

The weekend will be held at Brookside Campground near Blooming Prairie, MN on August 23rd to 25th, 2024.  All Knights and their families are invited to attend.  The weekend includes Prayer time, including the rosary, Mass on Saturday night and lots of fun, with Bean Bag and Horseshoe Tournaments, and time around the campfire.

Brookside has many things to offer a family.  You can just relax and visit, or enjoy the heated swimming pool, basketball and volleyball courts, gaga ball, hiking trails or kayak and canoeing access.  There is also crafts for the kids on Saturday morning and wagon rides on Friday and Saturday evenings.  Brookside is a pretty, wooded campground along the Cedar River.

The campground is south of Blooming Prairie and about 12 miles from Austin, MN for those who like to check out the surrounding area.

For information, contact Roger and Deanna Coudron at 507-829-5126 or  You can also look up Brookside on the internet at or call them at 507-583-2979.

If you wish to reserve a campsite, you can call or email the campground and ask for sites reserved by the Knights of Columbus.  If you think you will be camping with us, it would be best to reserve as soon as possible, as the sites will go fast.  We would appreciate it if you also contact us by phone or email to register with the Knights of Columbus, so we can plan for the catered meal.
