A typical day may include canoeing, arts and crafts, horseback riding and climbing a rock wall. There is a RN on site 24 hours a day. Camp Widjiwagan is located on a 320 acre campus on J. Percy Priest Lake in the Nashville, Tennessee area. Camp runs late May through July. Adult resident camps are in August and weekend camps are offered in October , December and March. Prices range from $330.00 for a one week youth day camp session to $975.00 for a one week adult resident camp session.
