Camp Lost Garden

Ready to be a kid again?! Camp Lost Garden might just be the place for you! Disconnect for a weekend and take time for good old-fashioned fun, relaxation, and adventure!

Campers will enjoy classic camp activities like arts and crafts, group games/races, campfires (with stories and s’mores!), nature hikes, and more! In some cases, these kid-inspired activities come with an adult twist (e.g., bloody mary bar, cocktail crafting workshop, “boots and brews” hike, etc.) Find the detailed schedule here.

Grab your gear and get ready for a packed weekend of fun! (If possible, we suggest taking Friday afternoon off so you can arrive at camp early.) Whether you are an organization looking to boost team morale, a group of friends who want a good time, or an individual interested in meeting new people while finding time for self-reflection, there is something for all to enjoy!

Special speakers are also being planned. The schedule will include (more TBA):

Friday (June 23): 3 to 5 p.m. — Check-In, Chair Massages, Tent Set-up

Saturday (June 24): 1 p.m. — Gina Johnson of Blueprint in Urbana will speak on “The Science of Creating the Life You Want Through Vision, Belief & Action.”

Sunday (June 25): 10 a.m. — Abby Schwarzentraub will speak on “Mental Health and Creating a Good Work-Life Balance.”

If you are interested in being added as a speaker, apply here.
