Soul Camp brings together world-renowned teachers, authors, and motivators and gives you access to them in person in a way like never before. Our instructors' courses and programs, outside of camp, sell out in seconds and cost thousands of dollars. At Soul Camp, not only do you gain access to their teachings for a fraction of a cost, you get to experience all of them in one place. You will learn from your favorite instructor one period, and be their partner in a breathwork workshop the next!

Soul Camp is a place to play, explore and find the courage within when you get outside your comfort zone.

a day at camp

From the moment you wake up to the moment you lay your head down to sleep, your day will be filled with delicious food, thought-provoking conversations, fun and nourishing entertainment and activities for your mind, body and spirit. Each period, we offer about six different choices so you will always find something that you’ll want to do. You get to choose your own adventure!

No two days will be the same, but here's what a typical day might look like:
9:00 AM registration opens
10:00 AM opening ceremony
11:00 AM period 1: all-camp activity (think: color war!)
12:00 PM period 2: choose your own workshop or lunch
1:15 PM period 3: chose your own workshop or lunch
2:30 PM period 4: choose your own play activity
3:30 PM closing bonfire (complete with s'mores!)

your camp staff

We've brought together the most inspiring, wise, fun, and creative staff yet. Not only will you get to learn from them, you will actually get to play and dance and learn right alongside of them! What makes Soul Camp unique is that we are all in the experience together. there are no teachers on a pedestal. we truly are all student and teacher. And just remember that camp is a choose your own adventure- you get to pick the classes and activities that YOU want to go to. Nothing is forced, everything is optional.

Each camp, we bring together renowned, inspiring, wise, fun, and creative teachers for you to learn from. In 2017, we will be adding intensives to dive deep into the subjects you are craving to learn more of. Staff roster will be announced in early 2017.

but i'm not sure...

it's too much money!

Grass triangle 0b7fb26b89c295020ffcd3ff5109e13277e535250e7ae61032bf234eebbfe6d6

$1299 or $129/month for 12 months?! Let's break this down. Retreats of this caliber and quality could run you anywhere from $2,500-$7,500 including food on-site, accommodations, airfare, etc. At Soul Camp, EVERYTHING is included: all food, housing, a high-level curated experience with over 50 classes & workshops available, swag and an infinite amount of snacks. The instructors you will be learning from and working with at camp charge thousands of dollars for their programs - at Soul Camp, you will be there with 40 of the best! One weekend away that will provide you with a life transformation and memories that will last forever? That's priceless.

i'm scared to come alone!

Grass triangle 0b7fb26b89c295020ffcd3ff5109e13277e535250e7ae61032bf234eebbfe6d6

Of course! Going away to the woods with 300 strangers? Yup. Scary. We get it. However, we have really great news. After one hour at camp, we are no longer strangers. Our programming is completely geared towards the campers that come alone (80% of our campers do) because most campers are coming to camp to meet their people. You will be in a bunk with other "newbies" coming alone and with bunk bonding activities, communal mealtimes, small class sizes and 300 people who are entering into this transformative experience together, making friends is easy and feeling lonely is difficult at Soul Camp.

We're putting on our life coach hats right now to tell you that you can make the time. If you want to be at camp, you can make it work. Yes, you may have to do something new. You may need to ask your partner to watch the kids, you may need to trade in your daily Starbucks to make this work, you may need to ask your manager for the time off or even a reimbursement for an experience that will catapult your creativity like woah. Whatever it is, if you want a life-changing experience, if you want to make a change, you are going to have to start now by taking a leap and making a decision. You got this!

what campers are saying...

HEAR MORE STORIES LISTEN ROUND THE CAMPFIRE

F.A.Q.

Of course! Soul Camp is the place to meet new friends, so you have nothing to worry about. Most of our campers come alone and we promise that one of the main intentions of Soul Camp is to create new friendships and foster community. Without the distraction of our cell phones, we partake in incredible activities together- there is truly nowhere for you to feel alone. We have carefully crafted the experience to allow you to get to know an intimate group of people, all the while feeling the connection to the larger community present at camp.

We have campers signed up from age 18-69 and everything in between, but the average age of our campers is 30-45. All ages are welcome! And you are NEVER too old for camp!

At Soul Camp East, we are expecting approximately 250 campers.

At Soul Camp West, we are expecting approximately 150 campers.

We recommend you plan accordingly and take time off from work to allow yourself the full experience at Soul Camp. However, we understand that life happens so if you are arriving late, we will have someone able to greet you and show you your way to your bunk!

Although campers are allowed to leave early, we strongly encourage you to stay for the entire experience. Soul Camp is so much fun that if you are planning on leaving early, you’ll most likely change your mind once camp starts. If you do need to leave early, please inform your counselor so we don’t go looking for you in the woods!

Yes. This camp is for anyone above the age of 18.

Nope. This weekend is meant to be rejuvenating and relaxing, and while we love your kiddos so much, we know you will be able to get the most out of the weekend if you are alone. Find a sitter, leave a love note for the kids, and come escape to Soul Camp!

If you are unable to come for any reason, your ticket is 100% transferable.

At Soul Camp East, you will be staying in upscale (for camp) cabins with approximately 10 other bunkmates. All cabins come complete with private bathrooms, your own cubbies and drawers and a private porch to take a breather. No private housing is available at this location.

At Soul Camp West, we have several accommodation options available. We have dorm-style housing (total campy vibe!), a shared room with one other person, a shared room with three other people, and an exclusive cottage fitting 2 people. You are able to secure a bed in any of these accommodations and then request your roommates/bunkmates.

Check out last year's packing list for a general idea of what to bring to camp! We will be providing you with a camp-specific packing list once you have registered.

We recommend you allow yourself a weekend free from Facebook, Instagram and your work emails. There is limited cell phone service and no WIFI at camp. There are camp computers and camp phones you will have access to in case of emergency.

We will provide you with our camp emergency contact information. Before camp, we will provide this information for you to give to your family and friends in case of emergency.

During registration, you will have the opportunity to list three to four friends you’d like to be bunked with. We’ll match you up, so you can enjoy the week with some of your friends, while meeting new people. Just like old camp times, right?

No. Your registration for Soul Camp includes your stay as a camper, all programming and food. There will be a Soul Bus leaving from NYC, LA & SF. You are able to purchase your seat on the bus when you register.

Animals are not allowed onto the camp grounds. Sorry animals, we love you!

Nope. This is just like summer camp when you were a kid so we will not be providing alcohol.

All workshops and classes at Soul Camp are optional - you can attend as many or as few classes as you want. This is a choose your own adventure experience, some of our campers opt to take a yoga class every single period, while others mix it up and try classes and genres they have never heard of before. If you would rather relax in a canoe every period, that’s totally fine too! This is YOUR camp experience - participate as you wish!

If you are going to camp and you are local, you can drive or take the Soul Camp Bus from Midtown Manhattan in NYC (which we recommend). The bus meets at 47th St and 12th Ave. If you are going to our East Coast camp and you are from out of town, you can fly into any NYC airport (JFK, LGA, EWR) and then take the Soul Camp Bus directly to camp, or you can rent your own car. The Soul Camp Bus leaves at 12:00 pm on Wednesday, August 24th so plan your flights and trip accordingly. The Soul Camp Bus returns to NYC before 4pm on Sunday, August 28th.

If you are going to camp and you are local to California, you can drive, you can take the Soul Camp Bus from downtown Los Angeles or downtown San Francisco. If you are from out of town, you can fly into any LAX or SFO and then take the Soul Camp Bus directly to camp, or you can fly directly to Fresno and purchase the 30min shuttle from the aiport to camp. The Soul Camp Bus leaves at 12:00 pm on Tuesday, October 25th so plan your flights and trip accordingly. The Soul Camp Bus returns to LA and SF before 5pm on Sunday, October 29th.

All Soul Camp Tickets are non-refundable and 100% transferrable.

let's get campy!
