AGES 3-8




1. play; creation seen as the playful activity of the divine.

Camp Lila is a mindful environment where children have the freedom to express themselves creatively, indulge their imaginations, and nurture friendships. Our playscapes are thoughtfully created and ever evolving in order to evoke curiosity, inspire meaningful play, and develop artistic souls.

"At the end of the day your feet should be dirty, your hair messy and your eyes sparkling." Shanti

As artists, we embrace the definition of creativity by experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun. We lose our fear of being wrong and simply share our souls with the world. We were created to create and nurture this philosophy through play. We do our best without fear of perfection. We release our minds and work from our hearts, knowing that there is nothing more artistic thank loving people. Camp Lila is an environment where our imaginations have the freedom to run wild.

"Creativity is imagination having fun." Albert Einstein

Through art, music, yoga, games, and good old fashioned play, we are a blend of the children who join us. Each child brings a piece of themselves to the Camp Lila experience and there is no way that a day could be repeated twice. We are artists, we create our world together...and Play Dirty.  

"Creative people are curious, flexible, persistent, and independent with a tremendous spirit of adventure and a love of play." - Henry Matisse
