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

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.
A new program!
New this year, we have a goal to raise enough to contributions to be able to offer 8 scholarships this season. This new program will allow 8 applicants to take part in our camps at no cost to them.
We thank all of you that so strongly encouraged us to create this program and appreciate your support if you are able. There is an optional add on during the registration process if you wish to contribute to this program.
