Adult Self Renewal Summer Camp: FULL WEEK
Come experience the freedom, playfulness and learning that only summer camp can provide!
Multiple Facilitators

You may not have been lucky enough to attend summer camp as a child. However, you likely have heard enough about those adventures to relate to the excitement of being outdoors with a community of people, learning new skills and engaging life. If you ever dreamed of going to summer camp or want to relive those wonderful days, join Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha) for the first-ever Adult Self Renewal Summer Camp!

Between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m. each day, you will be presented with three delicious meals, an Adventure Guide to take you through the daily theme, outdoor activities, creative projects, relaxation, simple energizing exercises, and optional evening activities that include singing, music and storytelling.
