July 11-14 Overnight Teen Camp - Welding, Cooking and Boating!
Enjoy camping in the redwoods near the summit of the Santa Cruz Mountains while learning creative sculpting in wood and metal. With a focus on, hands-on experimental learning, each student will complete works inspired by the animals and plants of the woods and ocean.
There is also a culinary component to this camp as all students will be preparing all meals together using wholesome organic ingredients. We will teach simple, plant-based meal plans to help hungry teens feed themselves! The food will be all organic and locally sourced.
We will be hiking in the redwoods and enjoying activities in nature. Plus a canoe excursion on the Pacific Ocean! You can think of this as a right of passage!
This outdoor adventure is geared towards kids who love being outside and want to deepen their creative and culinary skills.
Teachers are Jordan Champagne - founder of Happy Girl Kitchen and she studied to be a waldorf teacher and leads culinary camps at Happy Girl. Robert Seals inventor and founder of Kleen Kanteen and Mother Nature's temple and his wife Susan O'neill. The camp will be on their property in which they have created a perfect environment for kids to make art and connect with nature. All three have been working with kids camps for over 10 years and have a wonderful way of empowering kids and creating a mindful environment. Ry Champagne is also a counselor who is a graduate of the program and has led summer camps for the past two years. This camp is designed to be low tech and so cell phones will be parked at a central location and used only during agreed upon times.
Families will bring their teens to the property in Santa Cruz county on the morning of July 11th and get a chance to see the property and environment if they would like a tour! And then they will pick up their teens on the evening of July 14th and we will have an art show and appetizers to share what we have done for the week! This will be the 4th year we have done this camp and kids have made lifelong friends here!!!
