Notes from Camp Du Nord

We just got home from Camp Du Nord, a YMCA family camp.

It was amazing.

"Frogs Dig Pink"

"The Big One"

"North, Northwest"

"Into the BWCA, at least for an hour"

Here is the mission of the camp:

The mission of Camp du Nord is to strengthen families by providing opportunities for individual and family growth, supporting spiritual development and enhancing environmental awareness in a wilderness setting. Guided by this mission, our programs seek to:

• Enrich family life and inter-family relationships;

• Develop new insights and understanding between family members;

• Encourage awareness of the natural world and strengthen appreciation for wilderness;

• Encourage spiritual growth and renewal in a wilderness setting.

I don't mean to be cheesy about it, but it was all that and more. I will write more, but wanted to post some pictures.
