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 campus and nature sanctuary, children 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. There's plenty of time for yoga, meditation, games, laughter, creative projects, singing, and eating super-healthy snacks whipped up from our organic gardens. Camp Odyssey also invites local folk singer John Gage to provide an unforgettable experience for your kids or grandkids.
