Dear Friends and Family,

YMCA's Camp Menogyn has beena big part of my life.  For five years, I have been paddling the lakes of Minnesota's amazing Boundary Waters and Quetico of Canada.  This is my last year as a paddler!!!  The greatest honor bestowed on any camper is to be selected for the Femmes du Nord long trip (woman of the north).  This is a 52 day, INVITE ONLY trip that just a small hand full of people get the opportunity to go.  For 52 days we will paddle the lakes and rivers of Canada, helping each camper to build character, skills, and memories that we will invest in the rest of our lives.  I know, my dad and Uncle Jim were Hommes du Nord (men of the north), and both have said it was one of the most important, life-changing experiences of their life.  I am thrilled at this opportunity and thankful to be selected for this years trip!

Expenses for camp as well as travel will run close to $8000.00!  It's a huge investment, but a  trip of a lifetime!!!  I know its hard to understand why I would invest so much into such a trip, but this is one of those experiences that you come home changed....this is a kind of trip that transforms people and will prepare me for the rest of my life.  Ever since I was a little girl listening to my dad tell me stories of how awesome Camp Menogyn was/is...I wanted to be Femmes du Nord.  Here's my chance...please help me make it happen!!!

Thanks to all of you...I love you!!!
