Founded in 1961, Camp du Nord is a family destination located deep in Minnesota's north woods. Situated on the edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, du Nord provides access to miles of hiking and skiing trails, as well as family and group programming throughout the year. Lodging ranges from tent sites to gorgeous cabins with full kitchens and bathrooms, perfect for a seasoned participant family or a first-time camping experience.

And just like all YMCA of the North adventure centers, we strive to build upon the Y's core values as part of our Camp Culture and Community Commitment.
