Important Update on the 2020 Season

Hello friends –

As always, we hope this message finds you safe and healthy.  

We want to thank you for your patience and understanding as we carefully weighed several factors impacting our ability to open this season.  After much consideration, we are suspending summer camps, Common Ground Canopy Tours, Life School, and both our Team Building Adventure and Tree Climbing Adventure for the remainder of the 2020 season.

This is not an easy decision. We were so excited to celebrate our 25th season of camp this summer, to lead you on new adventures in the treetops and more. We miss everyone, but ultimately the health and safety of our guests and our staff take the highest priority.

We believe wholeheartedly in the mission of our work and we look forward to staying connected with you this year while we prepare for an amazing 2021 season! So, check back in with us here on our website, follow us on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and make sure you’re information is up to date on our mailing list.

We do hope to host our annual Firewalk this September. Tickets are still available on Also, we plan to offer a new session of Mindful Leadership coming this fall.
