A new program for families with young children is starting in at A.R.E. Camp! This four-day retreat invites young families to a taste the rhythm and joys of family camp in a bite-sized portion. Imagine waking up with your family in the dappled light of a green forest and rising to stretch and meditate before breakfast. Imagine sitting down with friends to enjoy a fresh, healthy meal that has been grown and prepared by loving hands (though not yours!). Imagine letting your children roam freely through the woods and meadows, knowing they are with friends and cared for. Imagine joining other families to make music and sing, spend the afternoon exploring along a mountain creek, and taking a swim in a cool and crisp pond. Imagine ending the day with stories and intentions around a campfire.
The days are simple, relaxed and structured around the needs of your family. You don’t need to keep track of the time, or plan for next activity. You and your family are held in the rhythm of A.R.E. Camp, and it is a rhythm created with intention: to nourish the body, mind and spirit.
This retreat is an opportunity to live together in community close to nature, to have the space and structure to cultivate mindfulness, to enjoy without distraction the unbelievable gift of family time. We look forward to sharing an amazing adventurous and relaxing weekend with you and your family!
