Camps & Retreats

An Invitation

from one of our graduates

What's This?

Hey there! So you've found our camps and retreats. These are annual events open to high school students interested in mindfulness, service, and leadership. All of these events are planned and led by two teens elected each year at the Spring Rally. Anyone is welcome to attend these events with us, although we do ask that everyone attend at least one of our weekly meetings (in-person or virtually) before signing up to go to a retreat or camp. This helps us know who you are before you get in the van. We travel together to all events from our campus in Greensboro.

We'll be kicking off the new school year with meditation, new friends, and activities to release and let go.
