Shambhala Sun Summer Camp is an outdoor, sleep-away summer camp for children ages 10-16. Since 1983, campers have been returning time and again to experience nature, themselves, and a community where people take care of one another. Campers leave behind television, video games, and other kinds of urban entertainments in exchange for the simplicity of living in a tent in nature. Experiencing the weather, cooking and eating together, practicing being awake and aware, and taking part in other traditional camp activities form the basis for a simple, profound experience. Sun Camp is inspired and based on the Shambhala Buddhist teachings, but is open to people of all backgrounds and interests.

Camp consists of three interconnected programs. Sun Camp: the main week-long program, for ages 10-16. Cadet Command Workshop (CCW): a leadership training intensive for returning participants age 14-16 that starts three days before camp and continues throughout Sun Camp. Rites of Warriorship (ROW): a rites of passage program for 16 year-olds, for the two days following camp.
