When & Where

Aug 03, 2024, 1:30 PM – 10:00 PM

Olde Growth Farm, 13800 SW 450th Place, Gaston, OR 97119



Bring your grief to Summer Camp at Olde Growth farm in Gaston, Oregon! 

How would your loss and grief feel if you interacted with them playfully, with no plan for how they should show up, no anticipated end product or outcome, no expectation of expertise or resolution no requirement for excellence? What if you offered them a kind, generous, inquisitive invitation to move around and show themselves to you and a community of fellow grievers, with guidance and encouragement in ways one might play with grief from folks who feel well grounded in their practice?

If you'd like to come give this experiment a try - feel welcome at Grief House Summer Arts Camp!

We'll offer dream theater, grief theater and puppetry workshops in which we'll get the chance to work in small groups to literally embody our dreams and our loss. A clay offering-bowl workshop, plus an array of drop in style activities including: mask making, memory bracelets, grief creature t-shirt making, face painting, writing activites, and goat time. 

Plus Sascha!!! Sascha is coming. What could be more delightful?

We will break the day into two sessions, so folks who are in the longer format workshops can switch out to the drop in activities and vice versa.

We will have gluten free, vegitarian snacks and dinner provided by plants growing on the farm, supplimented with food from a few local growers. And music and dancing into the evening.

Our schedule for the day will look something like this:

1:30 - 2:00: Welcoming - orientation - thanks to the land and the beings who hold us.

2:00 - 4:00: First Session

break for snacks and wandering about

4:30 - 6:30: Second Session

6:30 - 7:15: Whole Group Grief Share

7:15 - 8:00: Dinner - folks can offer their grief art to the whole group if they choose

8 - 10 - music/dancing/sitting around

This is a family friendly event! Bring your beloveds of all ages.
