Welcome to Camp Twigs at A New Leaf
Camp Twigs loves connecting kids with nature! Our newest nature day camp location is at A New Leaf nature school in Nashville. Just like our other locations, Camp Twigs at A New Leaf will have your child splashing in the creek, meeting local wildlife, playing outdoor games, and more! Leadership Academy Camp Twigs at A New Leaf is a place where your child’s creativity and imagination can run wild!
Every day at Camp Twigs is filled with imaginative play, exploring the aquatic habitats, playing in the woods, seeing local wildlife, building forts, developing outdoor skills, making crafts and forming friendships. Camp Twigs is where your child develops a true love and affinity for the natural world and will feel like they belong in it. Our campers learn outdoor skills, such as fire-building, Leave No Trace ethics, using hand-tools, bird watching and more. Day campers will be grouped with qualified, energetic, and passionate counselors who will foster a sense of appreciation of the parks and the outdoors.
Our philosophy is different than other camps. At Leadership Academy, we purposely structure our camps so that children can direct activities without adult micromanagement, giving kids an emotionally safe place to practice social skills, build confidence, understand appropriate responses to others and work through conflict with the support of caring counselors. The camp day is unstructured and unscheduled by design, allowing time for the children to play and form deeper connections to nature and each other.
Camp Twigs at A New Leaf is one of the summer camps offered by Leadership Academy.
