Enjoy a unique and enriching camp experience! Our engaging nature-based activities use critical and balanced thinking to understand the connections between us, animals and the environment. Yoga and meditation-mindfulness are introduced as fun physical and mental exercises to lead healthy, fulfilling, and conscientious lives. This camp is for youth in between ages 9 to 17.
