Standing on the grounds of the former Good Fellow Club Youth Camp, Dunes Learning Center is located in the heart of Indiana Dunes National Park, less than an hour from Chicago. Our modern facility is encircled by scenic trails, historic sites, and one of the most biologically diverse National Parks in the nation.


Dunes Learning Center has ten cabins that each accomodate seven campers and one adult Chaperone. The cabins are fully accessible, with comfortable bunk beds, heat and air conditioning, and private toilets and showers. Male and female campers use separate cabins and are supervised by adults both inside the cabins and during all activities. Campers can make one mutual cabin mate request to enhance their camp experience.
