Summer Camp 2010: June 22 - Aug. 24
To enhance connection of youth with the earth, plants, animals, and each other and to teach ways of maintaining these interconnections in the midst of materialistic and individualistic influences.
Philosophy: We strive to create a deeper
understanding and concern for the natural world through a program that
stresses enjoyable and active, hands-on learning. We believe that
experiential learning will enable children to make intelligent decisions
relating to the future of our planet. We value life-long learning and
the renewing aspects of nature.
Sara Hiller: I am a 2010 Lewisburg High School graduate and have a genuine love for the mountains, rivers, people, and plants of Pennsylvania. Although my roots run deep in this area, I have also lived in both New Zealand and India and greatly enjoy learning about other cultures yet seeing how people everywhere share a universal humanity. I am an ethical vegan and a yogini and am very interested in the wellbeing of all sentient beings. The Earth never ceases to amaze me and I plan on dedicating my life to creating a sustainable and peaceful planet, starting by attending Warren Wilson College in Asheville, NC a year from now.

helped advance the consciousness of ecological reciprocity in Central
PA. Cole lives in State College with his wife, two sons, mother-in-law
