With art, movement, music, writing, acting, discussion, and nature available to us all for cheap or free, our goal is model how these types of experiences offered at camp are always within reach.
Our hope is to broaden folks' horizons - no experience or skill level is expected, just an open mind! We also honor that every activity offered might not be each person's cup of tea and offer the space for any individual to opt to sit back and observe as a form of participation.
In this camp, we offer a variety of creative experiences to empower folks to find joy and meaning in daily life.
