Portland Society Boot Camp is like brainy summer camp in fall. Bring your thinking cap, but also consider bringing your mountain bike, running shoes, yoga mat, journal, hiking shoes, butterfly net, etc. If you haven’t been on the Banks-Vernonia multi-use trail, you’re in for a treat. It’s one of the best in Oregon. Expect exceptional company.
Boot Camp happens at Stub Stewart State Park. Yoga, meetings, meals, socializing and even scrap-booking take place in the community building, which we’ll have all to ourselves. It’s a great venue with a wood burning stove, huge kitchen and two bathrooms. For sleeping, we’ll stay in cozy heated cabins just a few minute walk from the community hall. Don’t forget your sleeping bag and head lamp!
2018 Boot Camp was a marvelous exchange of ideas on the theme of Collaborative Leadership, seen through a lens of connecting with yourself and others through mindfulness practices. Stay tuned here for dates and details for the 2019 Boot Camp!
Friday: Bike in from Portland or the Hillsboro MAX station with the group or carpool to Stub Stewart. Details on those options to come. We’ll stay in the rustic cabin village in the park. The evening will entail a happy hour, dinner and the infamous arts and crafts extravaganza in the community hall near the cabins.
Saturday: Heart of the program, outdoors time and yoga
Sunday: Breakfast and head out
Food: It’s included in the price. A priority of the Camp has been to have killer food.
