Called "the coolest summer camp in Louisville," Camp Odyssey immerses children entering grades K-6 in the three main aspects of the Earth & Spirit Center mission: spiritual practice, compassion for others, and connection to the Earth. In this new offering at Shawnee Park, they explore the woodlands and open space of one of the anchor Olmsted Parks while working and playing with our artists, garden and environmental educators, chefs, and meditation instructors. 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.
