Called "the coolest summer camp in Louisville," Camp Odyssey immerses children entering grades 1-6 in the three main aspects of the Earth & Spirit Center mission: spiritual practice, compassion for others, and connection to the Earth. As they explore the woodlands and meadows of our 27-acre nature sanctuary, work and play with our artists, garden and environmental educators, chefs, yoga and meditation instructors, and musicians, kids come to understand how ecosystems work, where their food comes from, and how to be more mindful and compassionate toward themselves, others, and their surroundings. We have now expanded to a summer camp series. Weeks 1 & 2 will still be our original Camp Odyssey. We have now continued the Odyssey with six more weeks of fun and adventure. You can sign up for individual weeks or the entire series.
