History of Camp Brother Bear

The idea for Camp Brother Bear began as a tribute to the late Bjorn Norgaard ’10, a cherished member of the Northland College community who left us too soon. In his honor, the Norgaard family established the Brother Bear Fund, which has supported Northland students in pursuing their own adventurous journeys for over a decade. From internships with charitable organizations to international travel, ski experiences, and regenerative farm internships, the opportunities from the Brother Bear Fund have empowered students to embark on life-changing adventures.

Learn more about the Brother Bear Fund and the stories behind its creation here.

Camp Brother Bear represents the natural progression of the Brother Bear story at Northland College as it seeks to generate more opportunities for students. We extend a warm invitation to the entire Northland community and all those who cherish the great outdoors, seek thrilling adventures, revel in music under the stars, and value the camaraderie of amazing people to join us!

During this special weekend, you’ll have the chance to camp on site and immerse yourself in the beauty of the north woods. The Camp Brother Bear All Access Pass grants you access to ALL courses at the Highbridge Hills Disc Golf Megaplex, daytime on-site programming, and a delightful evening of music featuring talented artists like Floydian Slip, the Big Wu, and Bad Columbus!
