Ultimate August Adventure: Outdoor Education and Yoga Camp for Kids 6-15

Sunday, August 11 – Thursday, August 15, 2019

Ultimate August Adventure: Outdoor Education and Yoga Camp

Entrust Jennifer Bascom and Jessie Steinberg, two OCT certified teachers (with more than 35 years of classroom teaching experience between them and over 15 years of running camps) to give your child the ultimate summer experience.
Take all the traditions of camp that have long benefited children (independence, freedom, fresh air, nature, friends, and expert guidance) and add to that the benefits of yoga, mindfulness, healthy food and forest play. 
 
There is no place more beautiful or peaceful at which to retreat than Sugar Ridge Retreat Centre. The natural surroundings are a paradise of forest, flowers, birds, and animals. The food is exceptional in every way: taste, nutrition, and satisfaction. The accommodations are luxurious and rustic at the same time.
 
Your children will unplug from electronics and reconnect to themselves, to the land, and to each other. They will return much grown up: they will have slept away with new friends, tried new foods, seen new things, learned new concepts, and developed new skills.
 
A sleep-away camp can be intimidating for children and parents alike, please contact us with any questions!
