“After a couple of days my whole outlook on life was changed. It was an awesome experience. I would encourage any teen to come here.”
– Josh, age 15
“Exactly what my 17-year-old son needed. A supportive staff, diverse group of kids, beautiful setting, meditation, yoga, talks, mindfulness, new friends, and new thinking. Learning to relax and observe your emotions from amazing staff and leaders! Life changing in the most positive way.”
– Kimberly, Parent
“My daughter came back from the retreat sort of transformed, in subtle ways. She seems more mature somehow, and she has a new clarity about what she wants from her life. The sort of jaded and depressed attitude that she was beginning to exhibit has been replaced with a more proactive attitude and a desire to connect to things. I am so thankful for this retreat, it’s just been a godsend.”
– Karin, Parent
