Summer is somehow already halfway finished, but there’s still plenty of fun things left to check out while the sun is shining.
One of the most exciting things to do with a gorgeous season is to take a trip out to summer camp — and no, it’s not just for kids anymore.
- Canadians do summer right, according to Statistics Canada
- Breakfast for dinner (or anytime) at Tim Hortons starts this week
- Where to get this magical mermaid gelato sundae in Calgary
To say this past weekend was incredible would be an understatement. I was pushed so far out of my comfort zone to do things I never thought I would or could do. To surrender my personal space, to be in the moment, to not be in control, and to think without judgement or expectation on myself and others. Thank you to @campyoga for creating this experience of community in which total strangers support one another and actively demonstrate kindness ❤️❤️❤️ @soulcycle @dailyhivevancouver . . . . #campyoga #pnwonderland #pnwonderland #westcoastbestcoast #dailyhivevan #weekendwarrior #tribe #community #yogaeverydamnday #yogagram #sunshinecoast #beautifulbritishcolumbia
Take all the best stuff from those throw-back days at camp — the cabins, bunk beds, and outdoor activities — and mix that in with some of your favourite things to do now that you’ve become an adult; namely drinking wine, dancing to live music, and enjoying a yoga session — and you’ve now got an idea of what Camp Yoga is like.
I went into this past weekend with an open mind, an open heart and a desire to learn. It did not disappoint! I slept in a teepee sitting at a balmy -6°C the first night. I laughed, danced, attended 6 yoga classes, a boxing class, an arm balance workshop, hiking & meditation and that was just the tip of the iceberg. I have not been practising yoga long at all but I felt completely and 100% at home in this environment. I have been called Pocahontas my entire life (I’m not sure if that applies now since I cut my hair ha ha) but I think it is fitting for this past weekend! You can bet your ass I’m going to be there next year! 🖤🖤
The adults-only summer camp is heading west this September and setting up shop at Camp Chief Hector, which is only an hour’s drive away from Calgary.
Tickets to the three-day camp (September 14 to 16) are starting at $474 for early bird pricing, but we’ve got a ticket with your name on it completely free of charge.
Don’t worry if you don’t have anyone to make the trip with you — it’s actually encouraged that campers come on their own so that they can truly experience all the new friendships, reflective moments, and pushed boundaries that only a solo trip to camp can offer.
There will be plenty of people there in the same boat as you (both figuratively and literally) so those strangers will undoubtedly turn into good friends in no time.
Take me back to Camp! 🌿💫🌚 Spent the mornings in nature climbing, boxing, doing all kinds of fitness and performance classes and off course lots of yoga! & nights gathered around the camp fire, star gazing, dancing my ass out at the glow in the dark party. I got to meet so many wonderful souls that quickly turned from strangers to friends! Looking forward to @campyoga 2018
