WE ASKED OUR 2020 CAMPERS ABOUT THEIR FAVORITE ASPECTS OF CAMP. HERE'S WHAT THEY HAD TO SAY.
The overall feeling of acceptance, openness and laid back atmosphere. Loved the venue/location.
My favorite thing was spending my free time wandering and meeting beautiful people <3
Stargazing! Feeling like we could do whatever we wanted, freedom!
Loved the fire and water ceremonies!!! The food was delicious and the s’mores were an excellent addition. Arts and crafts were soooo fun.
I really loved hanging out by the river with everyone, made conversation easy and natural.
The honest support of each individual to be exactly themselves and find the path through camp that led to their best healing. So open-hearted!
Honestly, it was magic. Perfection is a silly construct and this camp was perfect.
Loved the variety of classes - movement, creativity, information, meditation. So many things.
Loved all of the classes/activities this year. Good mix of meditation, discussion, yoga, art, exercise and fun.
I can't pick a favorite part because it was all so freaking amazing.
WE ASKED WHAT THEY LEARNED AFTER SPENDING FOUR DAYS IN NATURE. HERE ARE THEIR RESPONSES.
I learned some new sounds, enjoyed the incline of the property, found beautiful rocks, and explored new connections with each element individually. I re-discovered a magic that gets lost in the city.
It reminded me that we are part of everything, that everything is part of us, and the joy in the eyes of everyone who doesn't get much nature reminded me to be grateful that I do.
Peace, happiness, joy and light are available to us all!!
I absolutely loooooved NOT having WiFi in the cabins. It forced me to check out and be present and be aware of the beauty around me.
How important it is to stay in tune with nature. I felt so good after coming back!
The absolute quiet of central-ish Missouri was so peaceful, I actually loved not having good cell and internet reception - it took away the option which has become habit for so many, and the perfect darkness allowing show many stars to show through makes the contrast of city lights seem intrusive.
That slowing down in actually really beautiful. Even the massive trees grow slow and steady. No rocks were formed in an instant. No fire can be put out without effort. It’s all about being willing to breathe through the experience and lean into the stillness. That’s what I learned.
