Widji 365 - Capital Improvements
Over the next few years, we are seeking generous partners to help us create a year-round experience for campers both young and old by donating to Widji 365.
What is Widji 365?
Widji 365 is our ongoing philanthropic effort to enhance our current camp experience and expand it beyond the summer months. We accomplish this primarily through building additional year-round facilities and improving our current facilities.
Expanding our future with quality facilities
Most of our camp facilities were built with only summer programming in mind. By making key capital improvements and expanding our programming beyond summer, we become a positive, permanent influence on campers of all ages.
