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.

Widjiwagan's unique location in Ely offers an excellent opportunity for corporate groups, non-profit groups and adult retreats to truly experience the north woods. We work with you to plan programs that facilitate the objectives of the group and take advantage of all that camp has to offer.

Activities include:

  • Canoeing
  • Hiking
  • Skiing
  • Stargazing
  • Sauna
  • Relaxing by a warm fire

To reserve your weekend or for more information, contact us at info@widji.org or 218-365-2117.
