Founded in 1929, Camp Ihduhapi provides enriching overnight, day camp, and retreat experiences. Situated on 175 acres of vibrant maple forest along the shores of Lake Independence, its close proximity to the Twin Cities makes Ihduhapi the perfect place for youth and adults to learn new skills, build confidence, and create lifelong memories.

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.
