Coming Alive to Our Senses
July 19 – 23, 2017
Facilitated by Collin Brown
“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive” Howard Thurman
Camp Wildwood is designed to help you come alive: to your senses, your body, a brotherhood of queer men, and the extraordinary natural beauty of Wildwood. Join us for a five-day summer camp experience that will nourish your capacity to feel more alive, cultivate the joy and delight of being in your body, and create a supportive community of gay brothers. We will use ritual, movement, massage, and the exquisite beauty of Wildwood’s natural surroundings to weave together a community experience that will encourage deeper levels of connection and self-awareness. When we have permission to be more authentically ourselves, we open our potential for greater joy, aliveness and pleasure.
Don’t miss this opportunity to experience a summer camp where your body, mind, heart and spirit are fully welcomed and nourished. Learn to give and receive full body massage that will expand your erotic repertoire and provide basic skills to enhance your capacity for pleasure. Who could you be in the world if you deepened your capacity to love yourself unconditionally? If you come to Camp Wildwood, prepare to fall more deeply in love with yourself, your life, and your sense of belonging in the world. It’s that simple and that profound.
We will come alive in heart circles, by swimming, hiking, enjoying delicious, nourishing food, and having fun in the company of other kindred spirits. Camp Wildwood is open to men who love men of all ages: queer, transgendered, bi, curious and gay. While no previous experience is required, we ask that you be open to exploring nudity, erotic rituals, and your relationship to the natural world. Our days will be full and we will have space to relax and enjoy our surroundings.
