Brave & Warrior Program
Brave and Warrior campers will travel as a tribe unit, with a schedule tailored to suit their age-appropriate needs. These campers visit all the activities at Camp Widjiwagan, so they will have the opportunity to challenge themselves and discover new interests.
Thunderbird & Chief Program
Camp Widjiwagan's curriculum is designed to provide a safe, supportive environment where children can have fun and learn new skills. In addition to participating in all waterfront activities, Thunderbird and Chiefs campers develop independence by exploring their own interests during each day's land activities. With help from their counselor, campers decide which activities to pursue, working through increasing levels of skills and competence. Progress is recorded as campers learn more and more, carrying achievements over from summer to summer. Self-confidence and good sportsmanship are reinforced through individual instruction and group activities.
