Alumni Campers have their own team of adult Mentors in their own cohort of 24 kids. Together they take command of the Alumni Treehouse Village, they build big projects, or invent their own daily take-home projects. During camp some alumni may choose an internship as an MIT (Mentor-in-Training), or open a camp business, or choose to get a job in the Tribal Government. Alumni Camps are 1-week at a time. Choose any week or any combination of weeks. Alumni are mentored towards being good examples to the younger kids and to take responsibility for their own success in life.
These day camps are epic human childhood at its best! Please see the camp videos. Text Ben and Claire at 408-898-8177 if you have questions.
In the heart and experience of your child, Tribal Wisdom Camps allow your child to rediscover the forest village life from which our species originates. Historically and still today it truly takes a village to raise a child, with the space to learn by doing, and the experience of making mistakes which leads to developmental success. The advantage of traditional human mind/body/social/emotional human development through analog experience is priceless.
ADULTS: Get a great summer job! Our Alumni campers from years past who are now ages 16+ may apply for an Internship. And adults, like retired teachers, parents, and college students may apply to become a well paid TWA Summer Mentor, June 4 to August 19, or minimally June 9 to August 12. See the Job Page HERE.
