Has anyone heard of Camp Nakanawa

Camp Nakanawa is a camp located in Crossville Tennessee (Cumberland County TN) just for Girls.

I was given the book titled Nakanawa (The First Fifty Years) since my Family (Garrett's) worked at the camp back around 1920.

Since 1920, helping young ladies gain confidence and reach their potential in a positive, fun-filled environment.  See website.

Colonel L.L. Rice founded Nakanawa Camps for Girls in 1920, and they were under his direction until 1947 when Miss Elisabeth Mitchell (Mitch) became the owner and director for 34 years. Beginning in 1981, the camp has been under the direction of Ann and Pepe Perron.

Since established, Nakanawa has offered a program designed to enable each camper to acquire skill in various games and sports in an atmosphere that develops character and a spirit of unselfishness in a fun filled environment. Nakanawa is located on the Cumberland Plateau in Crossville, Tennessee at an elevation of 2000 feet.
