Print

Registration is now open for the Camp Odyssey summer program, which will take place this June at the Passionist Earth & Spirit Center in the Highlands. The fun and educational program is designed to help children connect with the Earth, awakening a sense of awe and wonder about the planet we live on.

Campers—grade school children who have completed kindergarten to 6th grade—will explore nature, science, hiking, music and movement, yoga, the arts, gardening, sustainable living and more on the center’s 20 acres.

The program, which this year will be held in cooperation with SHINE, LLC, runs from June 20-24 or June 27-July 1 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Tuition is $180.00 per child (or $90.00 for morning or afternoon half-day programs). Some scholarships are available; inquire by emailing earthandspirit@passionist.org.

The center offers programs on topics from meditation to environmental justice throughout the year to people of all faiths. For more information, contact Beth Zangari at the Earth & Spirit Center at 452-2749 weekdays between 9:00-3:00 or e-mail earthandspirit@passionist.org.
