SoulShine Summer Camps

Join us for an adventurous summer, diving into important world issues and expeditions to Atlanta’s most hip and mindful spots.

Led by experts of permaculture, homesteading, environmental awareness,  and our local foodie movement, we showcase our city’s up-and-coming gardens, farms, nature centers, and farm-to-table restaurants.

Our week-long camps feature:

  • Two field trips
  • An expert’s visit
  • Daily activities on the weekly theme
  • Two fun days at a local pool (or rainy-day adventures if needed)

Because our camp is small, children receive personal attention and experiences. Through our exploration of special topics each week, we awaken the mind and the senses, building treasured memories together as we learn from and celebrate the special places and people in our community.

Ages 4* through 12 (*Children 4 and 5 years old who will begin PreK or Kindergarten in August, 2018 may attend permaculture summer camp.)

Summer Camps


Permaculture is a toolbox of ecological and resource-wise practices that create a more balanced and fair relationship with the earth and the people who inhabit it. By studying the patterns of nature and working with them, we become more harmonious participants in life and living. Permaculture works toward building a more regenerative landscape, and encompasses using less energy, eating wholesome, local food, involving your family in the life of the community and making wiser choices that will improve the quality of life for your family, your community and the environment around you.


Summer camp activities incorporate permaculture values and awareness 


Campers discover how being well is enhanced with whole food and clean gardening


Campers see the community through field trips, neighborhood walks & volunteer opportunities



Campers learn to value nature and to develop a healthy relationship with the earth and its people
