Due to the covid-19 pandemic, we are temporarily pausing hosting groups at Widji. We hope to resume our programming at Camp as soon as it is safe to do so. In the meantime, please check out YMCA Family Campus and Outdoor Campus for information about creative day and half day outdoor education opportunities that are being offered to students and families at other locations. Please call Widji at 218-365-2117 if you have questions and for additional information on re-opening plans.
Outdoor Learning Program for school groups
Since 1973, Widji has combined environmental education with experiential learning to introduce school groups from 10 to 90 students to the magic and wonder of the north.
Retreats & Group Rentals for youth and adult groups
Widjiwagan's unique location outside of Ely, Minnesota and nestled in Burntside State Forest offers an excellent opportunity for youth and adult retreats to truly experience the north woods.
