Teen Camp 2024

July 10 @ 2:00 pm July 14 @ 2:00 pm PDT

Registration is now closed

The Monastic Sisters and Brothers of Deer Park Monastery are thrilled to be hosting Teen Camp, a unique opportunity for 13-18 year-olds to practice mindfulness in nature, surrounded by other young people who want to grow in understanding and love.

At Teen Camp we will learn the art of taking care of ourselves through the practices of mindful sitting, walking, and eating in noble silence. Other activities include:

  • Guided meditations
  • Hiking
  • Games
  • Circle sharing 

This year’s Teen Camp theme is Be Alive, Be a Miracle! – You Already Are What You Want to Become. We offer you a reminder: just by being alive, you are a miracle. Your heart is beating, your lungs are filling and emptying, and without any effort at all, you are already a wonder of life. There are so many expectations put on teens today–to be the best student or athlete, to be popular, to be funny, good-looking, and smart. Teen Camp is here to meet you as you are, and to let you know that you already are what you want to become, because you are inextricably connected to the web of life. The universe has conspired to make your existence possible, and there is nothing that is not you.

At Teen Camp, we practice as a family to be truly alive, empowering the people around us to do the same. We learn skills to help us embrace and transform our feelings of fear, anger, and despair, and to be happy, healthy, and free. Most importantly, we have the opportunity to connect with old friends and make new ones, forging meaningful relationships to last a lifetime. The Monastic Siblings of Deer Park Monastery are happy to invite you to join us for this very special five-day Teen Camp, to Be Alive, Be a Miracle!


For 4-nights of tent camping: $292 per teen to attend
