Earth Arts of Ithaca and Shimmering Light


are delighted to collaborate and bring the Bristol Hills


Forest Camp for Grown-ups

When: July 27-29, 2018

Where:  Shimmering Light Farm & Renewal Center, Naples, NY

Who:  Ages 18 and up

Crave a break from adulting?

Ready to revive childhood joy?

Come play with us in the forest!

Choose your pleasure in each moment. You can…

– Build a fort (or a serious weather-proof shelter)
– Take a nap
– Make dandelion pie (and forage more wild edibles and teas)
– Howl at the Full Moon
– Sleep under the stars, or in your fort (or in a cozy indoor bed)
– Make your own rope or basket
– Play with fire (make a 1 match fire – and cook our wild harvest)
– Lollygag in a gully… find turtle stones
– Float under a waterfall
– En Joy!

This weekend forest immersion will weave these childhood passions together with primitive survival skills and a Shinrin-Yoku Forest Bathing experience. All activities are invitations. Do what you feel like doing and happily ignore the rest (like you did when Mom was scolding you for dragging mud into the house)!

Cost:  $250 for the weekend, including free camping Friday and Saturday nights, and meals. The Renewal Center has rooms available for additional $ for the weekend, please contact Shimmering Light directly for more information.

Leaders/Mentors for the weekend:
Deb Denome – Deb is an herbal educator, Horticultural Therapist, Forest Therapy Guide, and Director of Shimmering Light Farm & Renewal Center, a non-profit educational organization dedicated to exploring and inspiring more conscious and regenerative ways of life.

Julie Nichols Kulik – Julie is the Director/Owner of Earth Arts Ithaca, a program that has been offering Nature Awareness and playing in the woods and gorges surrounding Ithaca for the last 18 years!
