What to expect at camp-
1. To create an atmosphere conducive to educating the greater society in regards to the ecological danger that faces all humanity
2. To create a community setting that teaches and promotes youth and others to be active in developing ways to live in harmony with earth and nature
3. To develop ways and means necessary to confront those forces that would destroy the natural order of life and sabotage the future of our planet and thus our children
4. And most of all, to promote recognition in all people that the earth and nature are the greatest manifestations of the Creator that we have to relate to and to identify and promote spirituality within the community by working together with the elements of our existence that this community can sustain itself in a way that allows the earth to replenish itself every spring as our ancestors did as they faced the challenges of their time
