Do you remember the glory days of your youth, when you would spend your summers at camp?
You know, the days when you made lifelong friendships, spent hours swimming in the lake, singing Kumbaya around the campfire, and crafting poorly made macrame friendship bracelets.
Well, it just so happens that you’ll be able to relive your childhood this September at an epic adults-only summer camp where you can spend the weekend living like a kid again, but this time, with booze.
From September 7 to 9, there’s a Camp Yoga weekend happening three hours north of Toronto at Camp Manitou in Perry Sound.
10 Things I Learned at Camp Yoga (with corresponding photos): – • 1. Nothing makes you feel more alive than jumping in a cold lake. Nature is beautiful and to be one with nature is magic. • 2. B19 is playfulness, mischief, and party, but also pure love, generosity and inclusivity. The best kind of people to be. 💗 You are amazing (and hilarious) @mandabritton, @wisdomkeeper and @kiddlind. • 3. Bring your best friends everywhere. They will take care of you and laugh with you. Find friends like @briannajgibson and @robyn_barry. • 4. Go canoeing more. It’s relaxing, peaceful and a perfect addition to the old lady life you live. • 5. Hang on the dock with your gals from last year plus the best new ones. Some of the best convos (and snacks!) happen on the dock. • 6. Bring a friend to camp who’s never done yoga. Experiencing Body Art, meditation and yoga through her eyes was nothing short of magical. Thanks for coming @luskington. • 7. It’s okay if you fall asleep in meditation when you’ve only had one hour of sleep. But next time try and stay awake because @queeniephair and @jonathanphair are simply the greatest humans. • 8. Friends who bring all the snacks are the best kind of friends. It’s also fun to spend more time with ladies you have crushes on. (Hi @jessmelville & @russouw_round_the_way) • 9. Picking someone up at a rest stop might just mean finding a new soul sister. And she just might teach you to roll with the punches and that crutches don’t have to stop you from having the most fun weekend. I love you @laurenpark15. • 10. Always stay in a cabin with this view from the back deck. Because, whoa. Thank you @chesleylong and @campyoga for yet another incredible weekend. You’ve created something truly special. ✨#campyogaON #ahoyhoy
For three days, Camp Yoga campers can enjoy traditional camp activities like rock-climbing, archery, canoeing, and high ropes courses in addition to live music, DJ raves, meditation, wine tastings, and yoga and fitness classes taught by the region’s top instructors — so you’ll really get to experience a diverse mix of activities.
The best part about Camp Yoga is you don’t need to go with a group, as campers are encouraged to come on their own.
From having life chats on the dock and bunking with new friends, to enjoying group wine tastings and challenging yourself with new activities, you’ll spend the weekend breaking out of your comfort zone by interacting with a new community of like-minded people.
SWIPE ➡ When your bodies in Toronto but your minds at Camp Yoga… still not over it. Thank you Chesley and every single person at camp yoga for sharing your energy and light with me. I came out of this retreat with great memories, life lessons, sore muscles, new skills, deep chats, epic naps and most importantly, new friendships. Thank you to all the teachers, vendors, leaders, attendees and staff – you’re all rockstars! Special shoutout to everyone who joined my wine tastings and shared their experiences and hangover with me 🤦🏽♀️🤣🏕🌺💕🕺🏼 #CampYoga #Retreat #Love #Friendship #Muskoka #Fitness #Yoga #Mindful #Gratitude #DanceParties #ParrySound #Ontario
Still need convincing to give Camp Yoga a try? Just imagine how refreshed you’re going to feel after spending a weekend in the great outdoors away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Not to mention you’ll get to leave camp with incredible memories, life lessons, plenty of sore muscles, and most importantly, life-long friendships.
I came home from Camp Yoga with a lot more than just a broken cast and crutches covered in glow paint. I came home with a new appreciation for heated buildings, believing now that unicorns really do exist, learning I can do pretty much anything a fully abled body person can do, that camp food can be v. lux, and have a heck of a lot more forever-friends. I’m so glad @nicolebreanne and @luskington picked me up at the side of the road and allowed me to experience all of it. Can we already sign up for 2018? Plz pencil the 3 of us in for cabin F2 again along with @robyn_barry @briannajgibson @lauren_anne_24 🌲📿 #chilldickmoves @chesleylong you’ve created something really special. 📸: @jencerullo
