Camp Bodhi

Season: July & August

"The best education does not happen at a desk, but rather engaged in everyday living - hands on, exploring, in active relationship with life." 

― Vince Gowman

Nature Week

It all starts with nature. 

The focus of this week in our camp structure is our foundation for anyone wanting to participate in the month long camp.  It's focused on the flora & fauna that is in our eco system, from aquatic bugs & plant life found in our creeks and streams to identifying animal prints and other native plants.  This week includes nature made boat races, a camp favorite!

Wilderness Week

Survival skills.

With a foundation in nature, we take the next logical step in learning how to survive in our natural habitat, in an age specific way. Skills learned will include compass and basic map reading, basic first aid, building & cooking over fire, purifying water, building a shelter, fishing in our pond and scavenger hunts around the farm. 

Homestead Week

Homesteading education at its best. 

Learn the time honored and proven skills of the homesteaders that came before us. Campers will participate in animal care with our chickens and pigs, planting and harvesting in the gardens, candle making, butter churning, food preservation methods and potato sack races.

Art Week

Let's get creative!

Art week is all about fun and creativity using natural materials! Skills learned will include learning how to weave, working with clay pottery, using garden goodies to create paint, learning how to tie dye & crafting our own bird feeders.  We will also create colorful snacks from the garden - a camper favorite!

For The Parents

It's not all about the kids!

Let's re-think drop off and pickup time... instead of rushing in and out, consider sticking around for some YOU time. There are lots that parents can do separate from Camp Bodhi while on the farm.  Summer options include:

  • Yoga. Check out our yoga class schedule and make some time for yourself. You get a free adult class pass with your child's camp fee.

  • Massage. Schedule a private creekside massage to relax and rejuvenate.

  • Dine. Grab a meal or a drink at our outdoor creekside Field Kitchen with or without the kiddos.
