Tofte Lake Center
Now entering into our second decade, TLC provides residencies for artists who crave dedicated time to work on their projects, for creative individuals who seek individual growth through guided workshops or retreats, for organizations that want to make time to re/focus on their goals or mission, for leaders to gather to exchange ideas with colleagues in their field.
TLC believes that every individual is creative at his/her core, and offers programming that enables the creative impulse to come to the fore. Through its artist-in-residence weeks, curated group projects, and guided retreats and workshops, TLC strives to create an environment where self and group expression can be extensively and intensively explored.
Lovingly referred to as Norm's Fish Camp (in honor of the resort's previous owner), TLC is situated in the Superior National Forest, adjacent to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW), and offers boating, swimming, fishing, hiking and biking along with a sauna, library, meeting space, public performance space, artist studios and comfortable, fully-equipped cabins for our residents.
