About The Program

For more than 30 years, Kindred Spirits has offered a way for people to expand their growing edges, relax, and have fun. It can do that for you, too.

A wide variety of activities are provided in a beautiful, natural environment. Stay in a rustic cabin or cozy dorm room or treat yourself to a private room. Enjoy the divine food. Free your imagination to create what you have always wanted. Explore “lifeshops” in relationships, breathwork, grief and loss, nurturing the self, arts and crafts, meditation, music, play, or movement. Immerse yourself in singing, dancing, campfires, support groups, a talent-optional show, swimming, and lots of time just schmoozing.

We are a purposeful community that creates the world in which we want to live for a week every summer in the beautiful mountains of Western Massachusetts. We unplug and connect with nature and with each other. Camp is a place to experience unconditional love, dive into deep healing work in safety, or just let your inner child have a blast. We nurture our bodies with farm-to-table amazing food. We connect through song, breathwork, art, dance, music, and play. Our roots are in the 12 Step movement. 12 step offerings are still an integral part of camp, but we have evolved into a community for anyone who wants to further their personal growth and experience an unconditionally supportive community. Many campers have been coming for over a decade and would not miss it for the world. Give yourself this amazing gift this summer. You will be welcomed with open arms!
