Adult Summer Camp

Five Days of Relaxation and Play in the Forest

July 17th-21st
Blue Skies

How great was summer camp? Do you long for those lazy summer days making friendship bracelets? In a world where hustle and ambition often overshadow our inner peace, it's time to step away from your “to do” list and embrace a different rhythm – one that honors down time, connection, and fun.

Come join Arehn McCarty and friends for five days of adult (all gender) summer camp in a safe and relaxed space, while surrounded by the towering majesty of ancient trees, breathe in the power and peace of time in nature.

With daily classes and excursions offered you can be as busy or relaxed as you want to be. Indulge in meals crafted from scratch with love and care, nourishing both body and soul. As daylight fades and the stars emerge overhead, gather around the campfire and share laughter and stories.

You will leave camp with an inner rejuvenation, a more joyful countenance, and the healing that comes from time in nature away from it all. 

This is the kind of indulgence your soul is calling for.

Activities offered will be based on interest but here are some options
