25th May – 28th May 2018
Experience community and sustainable living through sharing skills, creativity and celebration at the Gaia Tribe Summer Camp.
We are now in our 13th Year of beautiful, solar powered summer camps, and we felt it was time to shake things up a bit. This year we are going back to our roots, to those early days of long weekend camps. The idea is to shake things up a bit, make it more accessible in terms of budget and time, to still have many of the wonderful activities and workshops but with more space and time to reconnect with the land and with each other.
Many favourite activities will still be on offer, such as: dancing, singing, drumming, music, games, creative arts, circus skills, drama, discussion groups, meditation and yoga., storytelling. There will be a range of activities for the children, a teen zone and a creche.
More news to follow about the content, but here’s what a typical day would look like:
- Start the day with Yoga, Taize devotional Singing, or Meditation
