List of Excellent Adventures:
June 28- June 30th – 3 day week. (Camp is closed for July 1st and 2nd)
Summer Camp Begins! - Work together and live together in harmony. Get to know one another through co-operative games and an introduction to yoga. This week will set the tone for the following weeks of creative exploration.  Campers will discuss, share and discover what creativity and passion means to them.  They will walk away with an understanding of what it is they feel “passionate about.” They will feel empowered to walk to the beat of their own drum, and feel free to be themselves!  Together we will have a look at the coming weeks of the camp and campers will give their input. They will be pioneers and leaders in the very first Santosha Yoga Camp!
Campers signed up for this week get a free t-shirt!
