This is a remarkable opportunity to take time together, away from the regular pressures of our lives, and allow love and joy to envelope us. Bring the grandparents, a family friend, your nephew-take the opportunity to gather together and enjoy the qualities of sweet summer life.
In the mornings there will be engaging programs for children while parents and other family members have time for meditation practice, study, relaxation, contemplative walks, etc. In the afternoons and evenings there will be both structured and spontaneous family activities: go to the beach, visit a local farm, fly kites, enjoy supervised evening campfires, singing and games.
Tell your friends about Family Camp - a warm and spiritual space to play and learn with other families.
