We welcome young villagers to a fun day camp experience at the authentic French Language Village north of Bemidji, Minn., on Turtle River Lake. With a passport in hand, your child will join a whole new world of adventure.

Try your rhythm in an African drum circle, learn to fence, play games or compete at soccer. You might even paint or create a mural by the fountain. Every day you’ll taste delicious French food, including la baguette, and maybe you’ll learn to make your own crêpes! We have many new adventures for you to try at Lac du Bois!

Alongside our day camp program, Lac du Bois has a residential session for children who stay overnight for one to four weeks. Day campers will participate in some of the same activities as the overnight camp group.
