Concordia Language Villages will require all participants eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine to be fully vaccinated prior to arrival at a residential session, effective September 1, 2021. Read our vaccine FAQ for more information.​

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, day campers will join a whole new world of adventure.

Tackle rhythm in an African drum circle, learn to fence, play games or compete at soccer. Day campers might even paint or create a mural by the fountain. Every day there are opportunities to taste delicious French food, including la baguette, and maybe even learning to make crêpes! We have many new adventures to try at Lac du Bois!

Alongside our Day Camp program, Lac du Bois has residential sessions for villagers who are ready to stay overnight for one to four weeks. Day campers will participate in some of the same activities as the overnight villagers.
