Through our permit with Nashville Metro Parks, we have connected children to Nature. Children grow a true love and affinity for Percy Warner Park and Edwin Warner Parks through exploring the parks and learning about the plants and animals. Leadership Academy believes in supporting education, conservation, and volunteerism in the parks. Check out the many organizations, full of outdoor enthusiasts, that support the camp program.
