Feeling the need to get yourself, your kids, your squad, your troop, your team OFF THE GRID? Commune with nature to practice tech disconnect? Schedule a weekend workshop that can be customized based on your goals. Say goodbye to the hectic pace of cars and traffic, and hello to the rural country life for a couple of days in a safe hosted space. Give the kids a chance to interact with chickens and pick up the eggs they laid in the morning or see our donkeys up close and personal. Schedule a 'forest bathing' tour of the 17 acre property that also has a trail from the bluff to the river bed and a lovely swimming hole spot on the Buffalo River. What's 'forest bathing'? This is a Japanese activity where you spend time with a guide in nature to observe the nuances of the earth surroundings. Schedule a tinkering activity like building a birdhouse, painting a birdhouse, or make a bamboo fishing pole. Arts or craft projects include collage, photography, basic design or drawing, origami and pottery (available in 2019). Make a tin can camp stove or learn to build a fire for evening campfire circle. Learn how to pitch a tent or tie knots for the next time you want to go all in on camp instead of glamp. Yoga sessions or cooking instruction available upon request. Ask about adding Adulting skills lessons like using a crock pot so you have a warm meal at the end of a long day or strategies to make washing dishes a daily meditation for creative thinking or basic sewing skills to get those buttons back on your shirt yourself instead of the hassle to hire out.
Lodging options at the camp vary depending on your squad, troop, family, team size.
The main lodge sleeps up to 14 with a triple ensuite (king & twin), a full private with hall bath, a loft dorm with 7 twins, and a daybed with trundle in the pine room near the cozy wood stove.
The artist residency house may be available when you book your trip and that sleeps 7 with extra space for quality air mattress or tents in the yard. There's a quad ensuite (queen with bunk bed), a full and a twin private rooms with hall bath.
