"YOU HAVE TO GET LOST BEFORE YOU CAN BE FOUND."
SPRING & SUMMER OPTIONS
PLAN YOUR OWN INDIVIDUAL OR GROUP RETREAT
When the camp is not being utilized for organized programs, it is available for individuals or groups to reserve space for customized retreat sessions. Whatever drives you on a solo endeavor, our facilities will provide you a warm and restful slice of time and space to disconnect and reconnect with your goals and purposes for taking some time off to explore, discover, commune with nature. For groups up to 10, you can reserve our main lodge for your yoga retreat, your training session, team-building or time to collaborate whether it be writing, art, theater, storytelling, music your creative spirits can be nurtured here. Additional space may be available for groups up to 17.
Rejoice in the season of blossoms and planting seeds for future growth. Enjoy that days are getting longer and the sun provides energy for more exploring, adventures, discovery and creative abandon in a quest for those resolutions and dreams to turn into reality. Summer workshops bring us back to memories of childhood and the opportunity, the excuse or permission to put away technology to focus on oneself, one's relationship with nature and creativity, and meeting new people or reinforcing established friendships. Most importantly the season of warm air, lightning bugs and butterflies, thunderstorms followed by amazing cloud formations, and time for vacations provide an opportunity to get lost. The workshops and design of facility are grounded in the philosophy that rewarding experiences occur when we get LOST – lost in thought, lost in a good book, lost in translation, lost in conversation, lost in place. Here you will get lost and found.
WANDER 101: BACK TO BASICS future dates TBA or contact to arrange for your group
Feeling couped up, drained, burned out, stuck in the daily grind? This simple weekend getaway could be the refresher you need. It's an excuse to turn off the phone and get back to basics, back to craft. This is an unstructured retreat for those who have a project in mind, want to dust off the sketch book, sharpen up the pencils or dig out the other media tucked away behind all your other priorities. In a summer camp experience, you can watch the clouds, take your canvas to the field, explore the woods, rent a canoe, listen to the wind in the trees and the birds singing. For those interested in a more guided session, you will be challenged in a 24 hour project with a design coach who will encourage you to wander and challenge your creative conventions. Through the act of making by hand you'll have the opportunity to design, write, photograph, draw, collage, your results into a visual narrative (and even try a simple technique of traditional japanese binding). Commune with other participants during meals and depart feeling motivated and refreshed.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Creative people interested in graphic design, writing, stories, photography, adventure, getting back to nature whether you have just started your career or are in the midst of an intense daily grind will commune together in this weekend back to craft opportunity.
