Help Isabelle and Czarina get to their second year of camp as Wild Rose Sisters!
The Wildrose Sisterhood camp is one of the best and
positive things that I am looking forward to this summer. Before I went to camp, it was harder for me to socialize and communicate owith other girls unless I’d known them for a while. That being said, when I first arrived I was extremely nervous for who I’d meet there. Luckily, I went with my best friend Czarina so I wasn’t that worried about being the "alone”. When we introduced ourselves, everyone was a little shy but the next day, we all got to know each other better; we all became close friends.
I’m glad that my sister invited me to this special camp because I wouldn’t have met the humorous and lovable girls that are
like my little sisters.
During the three days at camp, we did plenty of activities. We do
yoga every morning to shake the slumber from our bodies. One day we made mini clay pots and vases, made candles and our own natural lip balm. We dyed our own wildrose sisterhood shirts with natural dyes from beets. We also had a silly, and fantastic dance party one night at the pavilion with glow sticks and candles.
To be able to have this this fun-filled, amazing and touching experience again this year is so important for me and my best friend Czarina. It makes us feel so special to be part of a phenomenal group of girls.
The Wild Rose Sisterhood is a community of women joining together to honor and nurture the maturing, independent spirit of young girls supporting their cultivation of self-esteem, self-love, and sisterhood.
By weaving yoga, mindfulness, art, folklore, nature and music into workshops, classes, camps, performances, and events we create a safe space to empower young girls to develop a healthy relationship with themselves and their peers.
We are fundraising to create scholarship opportunities to make our camp financially accessible for girls who would otherwise not be able to attend. Your contributions will provide girls with tuition which includes lodging in yurts, vegetarian meals at camp, arts + crafts supplies, and we will also be able to pay our teachers for their wonderful work with the girls.
$25 pays for transportation for one girl to get to camp
$50 pays for journals for all girls
$75 pays for 1 teacher and all art supplies for a camp workshop
$100 pays for meals for 1 girl during camp
$200 pays for lodging for 2 girls throughout camp
$500 pays all costs for 1 girl to come to camp
$1000 pays for 5 girls' partial scholarships to cover 50% of camp tuition
The Wild Rose Sisterhood Camp is a 5 day Rites of Passage journey for young women ages 11-15 that honors the sacred time when a girl is becoming a woman.
In this five-day camp nestled in the heart of nature at Stonehouse Farm, we build a close connection to the Earth's elements and each other while exploring ourselves in relation to the world around us. Each day begins with morning yoga and mindfulness practice to encourage self-care and a positive body image.
Activities include weaving, natural indigo dyeing, clay pottery + pit firing, leadership development, social justice + activism circles, yoga + movement, working with plant medicine, creating natural self-care products, ritual + fire circles, swimming, singing, connecting to nature and each other.
We’ll move from the heart to cultivate authenticity, self-love, self-expression, courage, and inner strength while nurturing the flower blooming from within.
We thank you all so much for believing in us and for helping us give this wonderful gift to as many girls as we can!
Big Love, Lauren, Alexa, Jean, Marisa, Kelly, Emily, Harper & Sara
