The Wild Rose Sisterhood Camp Scholarship Fund
Organized by: The Wild Rose Sisterhood
EVENT DATE Aug 03, 2015
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.
Achieving our goal is time sensitive as camp begins August 3rd, 2015!
Every donor will receive a personalized THANK YOU from the girls at camp!

In this four-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 learning earth-based skills, arts and crafts, nature walks with identification of wild plants and flowers, foraging wild edibles, scavenger hunts, swimming, singing, drumming, dancing, bee keeping, and celebrating together in fire circles. Together participants create a safe space for sharing the joy and challenging experiences of this budding time of life. 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!
