What is Teens Camp and Why is it important?
Our Teens camp is a unique experience designed for teens aged 13 to 18. Through our carefully designed programs, we offer a very safe and professional environment where we will share the living space and have lots of fun whilst going on a journey of self-discovery!
We center our work around the values of love, kindness, true attention and care, presence, humour, creativity, friendship, honesty and authenticity.

Our approach is designed to meet the specific needs of each teenager based on our previous talks with them and their families.
