Our Site: Lac du Bois - Hackensack

Hackensack offers the original French village experience. Nestled between two majestic lakes in the Chippewa State Forest, this village provides an immersion experience in the natural world as well as in French language and Francophone cultures. The site enjoys an inclusive, intimate community, a lakeside wood-fired sauna, electricity-free sleeping cabins and special programs focusing on ecology and outdoor skills. With music, cuisine, games, sports, simulations and staff from around the French-speaking world, the classic camp experience meets an adventure abroad at Lac du Bois - Hackensack.
