Camp Nakanawa | Summer Programs

Camp Nakanawa


Nakanawa, which is located at an elevation of 2000 feet on the Cumberland Plateau, divides its traditional girls' camps into junior, intermediate and senior sections, depending upon age. Staff encourage girls at the junior camp to try every activity in order to gain experience and to develop fundamental skills. Campers in the intermediate and senior camps engage in only four required activities (swimming, tennis, canoeing and glee club), thus providing them with the opportunity to set their own schedules. A free day each week allows girls to take part in a planned trip off site or receive additional instruction in an activity.
