We’re so excited to be setting up CAMP in different public places of our beautiful abundant city every day! We'll dance, share wisdom, do arts n crafts, jam it out, have meaningful talks, go on adventures in the neighborhood, form new friendships, and look fabulous doing it. We'll hold sacred space, honoring the location and leaving it more beautiful than when we arrived. Each day there will be a theme, so you can gear your look for it. Each activity period there will be options of what you can do, breakout-group style. Come for the full day, or drop in for an hour for an activity that excites you.

This is a participatory event that works with you adding your activities -- fill out the counselor form to get on board! Fill out the Camper form to play. Daily activity schedules will be announced, always with room for surprises. 

When it rains, we will stick it out when we can, and switch to a rainy day schedule when we can't.
