Camp du Nord is unique among YMCA camps in that it provides programming centered on connecting families. Our mission is to strengthen families by providing opportunities for individual and family growth, supporting spiritual development, and enhancing environmental awareness in a wilderness setting.
YMCA Camp du Nord seeks to promote an atmosphere where all persons feel welcome, included, and respected. At du Nord, we pride ourselves on appreciating the value of diverse populations and welcome all! Our programs are designed to enhance the relationships of any and all those that you consider a part of your family.
