Camp Twigs Rau-Wood
Explore the amazing Camp Twigs, where curiosity and fun adventures take center stage! Located in a beautiful 70-acre spot near Nashville, right by the South Harpeth River, this camp is all about letting kids discover the wonders of nature.
Imagine spending your days playing in big grassy fields, exploring by the rolling river, enjoying a playground, swinging on tree swings, and having tons of fun in a big pavilion with games and crafts. At Camp Twigs, every day is a chance for kids to choose their own adventure and make friends while doing it.
Camp Twigs is different from other camps because we believe in letting kids take the lead. Our counselors are there to support and guide, but the day is designed to be unstructured and flexible. This means lots of time for playing, making deeper connections with nature, and forming friendships.
Whether it’s building forts, watching birds, or learning outdoor skills like fire-building, Camp Twigs is the place to be. At Leadership Academy, we want kids to feel emotionally safe to practice social skills, gain confidence, and work through conflicts with our caring counselors.
Camp Twigs Rau-Wood is one of the summer camps offered by Leadership Academy.
Camp Twigs Rau-Wood is for children ages 5-12 years old and is one of the summer camps offered by Leadership Academy. Camp will be at the Rau-Wood Retreat Center.
Join us at Camp Twigs for an unforgettable experience where your child will fall in love with the outdoors, make lifelong friends, and have a blast exploring the wonders of nature – all the while getting sweaty, muddy, and stronger!
