Gabriola NVC Summer Camp

Thu, 2017-07-20 - Sun, 2017-07-23

"The Camp was inspirational, refreshing, and releasing. I am holding on to it like an amazing dream that fades too soon after waking up." - 2015 participant

The Gabriola Island NVC Summer Camp is a combination of learning experiences, an experiment in community and giving, and a holiday by the ocean! We've got programs for adults, teens, and kids 6-12. This is a camp for everyone, not just families. 

This is our fourth year. Campers with or without NVC experience are welcome. We’ll have three days of  workshop sessions, led by experienced facilitators, around the themes of: individual work, relationships, and community change. Yoga will be offered every morning, and there are trails and beaches to explore.  Everyone is welcome, including families.  Campers bring what they need to survive – not hard on beautiful Gabriola Island. 

The camp takes place at Descanso Bay Campground, on Gabriola Island, BC. We’re a 20-minute ferry ride from Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, BC, which is 2 hours drive from Victoria, or a 2-hour ferry ride from Vancouver.

Early-bird rates until May 31.
