We value compassion, authenticity and connection.

Connection Camp is a summer camp-style experience for adults, with a focus on fostering connection in all its forms – connection with self, connection with other, connection with nature, connection through play, connection through collaboration. Through a variety of conscientiously-curated participatory workshops, individually-focused guided practices, playful camp activities, evening dance parties and campfire gatherings, and on-site health and wellness providers, Connection Camp offers more than a weekend getaway, a rustic retreat, or a chance to meet new people. It’s a radical opportunity for participants to get curious, get playful, get real, and get plugged into a vibrant sense of community.

From Thursday, June 8th through Sunday, June 11th, campers will put our technology and work aside and say yes to the beauty of nature, deepening relationships, and unbridled play.

why?

'Throughout our lives we long to love ourselves more deeply and to feel connected with others. Instead, we often contract, fear intimacy, and suffer a bewildering sense of separation. We crave love, and yet we are lonely. Our delusion of being separate from one another, of being apart from all that is around us, gives rise to all of this pain.'

- Sharon Salzberg

When people go within and connect with themselves, they realize they are connected to the universe and they are connected to all living things.

I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard and valued; when they can give and receive without judgement; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.
