Summer Bound 2023

It’s time to get ready for summer.

Every summer, hundreds of teens from across the country sign up for our “more than a summer camp” mindfulness retreats to discover and be themselves among a caring community of peers and mentors.

The Summer Bound Teen Scholarships Fund enables us to uphold our founding commitment of accepting every teen regardless of their household’s capacity to pay tuition. Thanks to your support, we have provided $2.1M in scholarships since 2017. And the need is only increasing – a record 83% of participants are requesting tuition support for this summer.

Inward Bound Mindfulness

A national leader in immersive mindfulness education, Inward Bound Mindfulness provides teens and young adults with a rare opportunity to gain a level of insight into their own experience and build safe and authentic connection with peers and mentors.

Our vision is to support future generations of heart-centered, diverse leaders who are prepared to respond to the challenges of their time with focus, resiliency, and compassion for themselves, their communities, and the global environment.

Teens need our support more than ever.

Confident in their needs and their dreams, Gen Z leaders are showing their elders and each other how to authentically share one’s voice and take action. At the same time, the multitude of crises – a global pandemic, a climate emergency, systemic racism – and the responsibility youth feel to address them have resulted in the highest rates of anxiety, depression, and suicide recorded in history for young people.

Inward Bound programs are a unique opportunity to meet the call of this consequential moment and provide teens with an embodied sense of awareness, well-being, self-confidence, and interconnectedness amidst the chaos.
