We are excited to provide an opportunity to enhance your families wilderness experience by offering family adventures into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. 

Your family will be offered the chance to work together to develop wilderness skills, have a fun outdoor adventure, and create meaningful outdoor experiences with memories that will last a life-time.

What is a du Trip?

  • A du Trip is a chance for your family to explore the beauty of the BWCA with a trained and certified du Nord staff member.
  • Camp du Nord can provide families the opportunity to supplement their week at camp with a 2-5 night camping experience, utilizing du Nord’s resources and staff.
  • Du Trips are designed for whole family involvement, an opportunity for all family members to be an active participant in the wilderness experience.
