Unique Personal Growth Experience: For the price, there are few events on the planet which offer the depth and quality of experience of an NFNC Camp. We are deeply committed to co-creating a New Culture, and these events are our primary vehicle for doing so. To learn more about what to expect from our intended culture of camp or new culture you may find it helpful to read the article, New Culture Perspectives, downloaded here.
"Safe Container": We begin Exploratorium Camp by co-creating a safe container. To establish a bond of trust, mutual respect, safety, and loving kindness, it is essential that all attendees be present by 7:00PM, Friday, June 14. We welcome your arrival after 1PM on Friday. Register, set up your campsite, then join us for dinner at 5:00PM, followed by the evening program. Please contact the registrar if you can't attend the evening program at 7 PM on Friday, June 14 so that we can make sure you have all the information you need to co-create your New Culture Exploratorium Camp experience.
Early Departure: If you can't stay for the entire time, Exploratorium Camp can still be a powerfully transformational experience. We understand if you need to leave early, and appreciate the time that you shared with us.
Community Service: Exploritorium Camp has a high value on service. Everyone will contribute daily hours toward projects that will support SCwest and support our daily camp community. Participating in daily service offers the opportunity to bond more deeply with each other as we share in the joy of co-creating community and making camp happen.

Caveat: Besides being a wonderful escape from some of society's repressive social constraints, Exploratorium Camp can be an intense personal and interpersonal experience. As such, it offers opportunities and challenges to face our own innermost inconsistencies, insecurities, and instabilities, and to encounter and respond to those of others. Be aware that not every situation may be to your liking, and that you are always at choice to participate or not. Traditionally, many campers practice multiple loving relationships. However, Exploratorium Camp is a place where all relationship choices and orientations are honored equally.
