About the Event
This is a unique opportunity to unplug from our regular lives and fully immerse in nature while focusing on our wellness!
Participants will pack up all they need in a backpack or compact bag for a 2 day- 1 night stay on the island. We will meet at the Island Packers headquarters in Ventura Harbor to board the boat early Saturday morning and return Sunday afternoon. At camp, we will learn about basic camping and safety practices and venture from there for various hikes. Throughout the experience, we will engage in a variety of group discussions, self-reflections in journaling and lessons in healthy coping to provide light support around wellness. This experience is not therapy, but will feel therapeutic.
The facilitators will provide a supportive, educational and safe experience in nature through their backgrounds in therapy, wilderness education and wilderness first aid training.
We are able to supply most of the camping gear that is needed (unless you have your own)!
Details on gear, locations and more will be provided to those signed up.
