Make a gift to send students to Widji!

We are in the midst of raising fund to support sending kids to camp. Many of our community members are familiar with Widji’s campership process for summer campers but did you know that we also support schools to bring their students to Widji in the fall, winter and spring months? Over a quarter of the students who come with their schools to camp receive scholarship support. Funds raised through our Annual Campaign help to lower the overall cost to each school.

A 6th grade teacher from Seward Montessori in Minneapolis once shared with me that when her students come back to say hello to her, they want to talk about their trip to Widji and about the time they jumped into a hole in a frozen lake. She laughingly lamented that they never want to chat about the history or math she taught them.

Please make a gift to Widji’s Annual campaign today at widji.org and contribute to life-changing experiences for young people!!
