Weekday Theme Camps

Theme Camps are sessions in which community members share their interests and passions, an opportunity to learn through sharing.

They can last all week or take place at specific times.

Participants are encouraged to decorate and personalize their campsite, provide a communal space or provide an activity. Anyone can contribute to a creative and communal atmosphere through personal or group expression! Even a simple idea such as a “sunscreen camp” turns a necessary task into an artistic, fun and interactive activity.

It’s up to you, campers! What’s your passion? May your inner self-expression blossom within an environment of respect!
