Camp Twigs Bellevue
Camp Twigs loves to encourage exploration and spark curiosity and this is a great location to do so! This beautiful 70-acre property is nestled in the rolling hills just outside of Nashville next to the South Harpeth River. This peaceful retreat offers big grassy fields, a rolling river perfect for nature exploring, a playground, tree swings, and a big pavilion to play games, crafts, and other camp fun! All of our camps are highly personalized and allow children to choose their own adventure.
Everyday at Camp Twigs is filled with imaginative play, exploring aquatic habitats, playing in the woods, seeing local wildlife, building forts, 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 Bellevue is one of the summer camps offered by Leadership Academy.
Camp Twigs Bellevue is for children ages 5-12 years old and is one of the summer camps offered by Leadership Academy. Camp Twigs Bellevue will be at the Rau-Wood Retreat Center.
Children will spend the day outdoors, engaged in play and education, and increasing their appreciation for nature. To encourage independence and creativity, schedules and activities are flexible. Through their time at camp, kids develop confidence, grit, determination, and valuable social skills – all the while getting sweaty, muddy, and stronger!
