Support Camp Ihduhapi

Each year, we ask for your support to keep a long-standing tradition of exceptional camp experiences alive and well. Your donation helps campers develop character, build skills, learn from nature and make lasting friends and memories.

We missed our overnight camp last summer, but we are confident in our ability to provide transformational outdoor experiences for campers in 2021. The health and safety of our campers and staff team remain our top priority and we are working with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, American Camp Association and the Minnesota and Wisconsin Departments of Health to modify our programming as necessary.

We believe outdoor experiences will be more important than ever this summer. We need your support.

Your gift to Camp Ihduhapi will support necessary modifications to our program areas, new trainings for our staff and will ensure ALL camper will able to enjoy camp this summer, removing any financial barriers.
