YMCA Camp Widjiwagan in Ely, MN!  

This is the biggest trip of the year and one that the students absolutely love! We travel up north to Ely, MN on coach buses. We are at Widji for 3 nights and 4 days and stay in cabins. The Widji staff (along with Seward staff) take the kids on day and night hikes, learn about the northern wildlife, and play several games. The kids also learn about ways to conserve energy, food, and water and learn about the importance of respecting the environment we live in. We all take a sauna and jump in the lake for a polar bear plunge! (This tends to be something the kids don’t stop talking about throughout their whole middle school career.) Below are a few quotes from the kids that are just some examples of how much the kids enjoy Widji!  Click here for more info.

“My favorite part of middle school was our trip to Widji in 6th grade!”
“Widji helps us get to know each other way better and we build tons of memories together!”
“My favorite part of the Widji trip was the bus ride! It was so fun getting to sit and talk with friends for 5 hours!”
