Camp Information

On the scenic shores of Lake Coeur d’Alene in northern Idaho, lies the ideal location for the  Lady of the Lake Music and Dance Camp. Come join us at Camp N-Sid-Sen, an idyllic 257 acres of tall pine and fir forest. There is nearly a mile of lake shore, hiking trails, boats and beach. The camp has a beautiful new dance hall, multiple workshop sites, clean, tidy cabins, delicious food and more.

Housing, Camping, and Food

Twelve cedar cabins sleep 6 to 12 people each. All have bunk beds with mattresses provided. Camping is available for those who prefer. Please let us know ahead of time because cabin assignments are prearranged.
