The 4th annual Camp Vermilion Bluegrass Festival took place on July 25th on the shores of Lake Vermilion in Cook, MN. More than 420 people gathered at the camp ball field for 6 hours of wonderful food and fellowship. Together they raised over $17,000 to support the programs at Camp Vermilion and Camp Hiawatha.
Jerusalem Road (Fort Collins, CO), No Grass Limit (Minneapolis, MN), and Sloughrass (Birchdale, MN) played bluegrass music all afternoon and were joined by a surprise set by some of the camp staff. VLM wishes to thank Thrivent Financial - North Zone for their sponsorship this year's bands and for their "Action Team" to help our guests be Energenerous and purchase energy saving LED light bulbs for the camp.
We would also like to thank all of our friends, neighbors, and local business sponsors who made this festival our best ever! It's great to be alive in God's great northwoods.
