"This is me Mom!" 10 year old camper.

Every summer Nancy and Amber guide girls ages 9-13 at Girls Camp Courange. The camp is held at the remote Gathering of Friends Retreat Center in the Gila Wilderness of New Mexico. The girls learn to live in community, survival skills, work in the organic garden, play in the pond and river, go hiking and backpacking and make herbal remedies from local plants. The camp rituals include exchanging beads for qualities and making necklaces, making candles and wishing boats for the wishing boat ceremony and a special camp journal. This camp provides challenges for gaining confidence and self-knowledge, friendship and communication skills, physical stamina and lots and lots and lots of fun.

For the summer of 2017 we will leave Boulder on Thursday, June 22nd and returning Saturday, July 1.  Contact Nancy at nancy@runningriver.org for more information.
