Join us for four soul-filled days that will revive your connection to yourself and the world around you. immerse yourself in experiences that will engage your heart, soul, senses, body, and mind.

slingshot-sketchAt Connection Camp, we’re all about fostering connection on a deep, earnest level – beyond schmoozing and networking, beyond “friending” and “liking,” beyond titles and status, beyond small talk and social masks. We’re talking about connection that’s heart-to-heart, hand-to-hand, soul-to-soul, smile-to-smile, and eye-to-eye.

slingshot-sketchFor four days, we invite you to come as you are – let go of the pursuit & the striving that can pull you away from your true vibrancy and sense of freedom. We welcome you back to yourself… back to your soul, your wonder and playfulness, your sensitivity, your health, your vitality, your spirit. At Connection Camp, you’ll indulge in nature’s gifts, delicious food, amazing people, inspiring workshops, and unabashed play.

what happens at camp?

Morning Practices

Daily Morning Practices give campers the opportunity to ground deeply in their own experience before launching into days of interactive play. Guided meditation, breathwork, and other energy practices will be offered.

DAYTIME ACTIVITIES

Choose from over thirty playful, participatory workshop offerings spread over four days, or create your own adventure splashing in the lake, lounging under the pines, and hiking the grounds’ serene trails with friends new and old.

Health & Wellness

Massage? Reiki? Chiropractic? Good healers are sometimes hard to find, but not in our Healing Pavillion. Health & Wellness Experts are available to you throughout the weekend for consultations and services. Exercise self-care as much as you exercise your sense of play.

Nights With Unitribe

Each night at camp boasts a different way to celebrate! Cut loose at the lakeside dance party, have some old school camp goodness with s’mores and singalongs at the bonfires, and strut your stuff in the talent show… All produced by our awesome friends at Unitribe!

BE A PART OF OUR COMMUNITY

Connection Camp

Connection Camp is a summer camp-style experience for grown-ups, with a focus on fostering connection in all its forms – connection with self, with other, nature, through play, and 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 8 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. For all the deets, visit www.connection-camp.com! INTERACT WITH US ON INSTAGRAM AND FB!! IG: connection_camp FB: facebook.com/joinconnectioncamp

Human connection is
the most vital
aspect of our existence,
without the sweet touch
of another being
we are lonely stars
in an empty space
waiting to shine gloriously.

Go and love someone exactly as they are. And then watch how quickly they transform into the greatest, truest version of themselves. When one feels seen and appreciated in their own essence, one is instantly empowered.

Just as the wave cannot exist for itself, but is ever a part of the heaving surface of the ocean, so must I never live my life for it self, but always in the experience which is going on around me.

If we could look into each other's hearts, and understand the unique challenges each of us faces, I think we would treat each other much more gently, with more love, patience, tolerance, and care.
