July, Sustainability Camp will become Synergia Summer Exchange Program. Since
1997, Synergia has included young people in real building projects that have
included the Synergia lodge and bathhouse, three cozy and beautiful cabins, two
ropes courses, a sweat lodge, walking trails, and forest parks. Working on
building projects together is one of the most satisfying and enjoyable ways to
be together and to learn. Your energy and good work will go to creating
beautiful long-lasting spaces that others will benefit from for years to come.
You will learn useful skills that will serve you in ways you can’t even imagine
now. And of course we’ll start the session on the ropes course, and spend the
hot afternoons swimming in the Yuba River.
Thinking about enrolling in Finding the Good next fall or in the future?
This is a great way to try it out, live here for while, and get a feel for what
we do and what it’s like.
Two family sessions are offered:
There’s more! We’re really
excited about the Family Weekends.
For two weekends during the exchange program, families with kids of all ages
are invited to come to Synergia to experience first hand the sustainability
education center we’ve built here. Come work/play with us: build, learn new games,
learn to preserve and ferment foods, challenge yourself on the ropes course, swim in the Yuba
River. We’ll cook delicious meals together including produce from our garden
and the local Farmer’s Market. And if you come for the first weekend, you can
attend the Sierra Storytelling Festival with us – there is nothing else like
it. Parents and younger children are always asking us when they can come to
Synergia. Now is your chance. Summer in the Sierra foothills is paradise – come
be with us!
