Family Camp provides a positive experience for a young or first-time camper!

At Family Camp, we provide a balanced program for all ages to enjoy: for adults, a popular resource person will lead workshops on the topic for the week; for children, a wide variety of counselor-led activities give kids a taste of what Children’s Camp is like. Most important, the session is about families spending time together.

During the mornings, children are grouped by age to attend counselor-led activities while grown-ups meet with the resource person to discuss a relevant and interesting topic related to material from the Edgar Cayce readings.

All other activities are designed for the whole family to attend together. Grandparents, aunts, and uncles--all are welcome at Family Camp!

Adult Workshop During Family Camp

This experiential workshop is an opportunity to explore and develop your relationship with your physical, sensory self. We will play with listening and responding to messages from our bodies about our physical, emotional, and spiritual experience of life, and take a deep personal look at what resistance we may have to being present in our bodies. This workshop is perfect for those who have difficulty getting out of their head and into their body, as well as for those who delight in physical experience.

PARENTS: Family Camp can provide a positive experience for a young or first-time camper. If your child is not yet comfortable with attending a Kid's Camp, he or she might truly enjoy coming for Family Camp. After experiencing Family Camp, kids usually want to come back for more on their own!
