Shambhala Sun Camp is an outdoor, sleep-away summer camp for children ages 10-16. Since 1984, 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. More
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 starting three days before camp and continuing throughout; and Rites of Warriorship (ROW), a rites of passage program for 16 year-olds running for two days following camp.
