Adult Day Camp Take Two

Updated: Feb 29

Warm, inviting, fulfilling, nurturing, inspiring, delicious, healthy, healing, clarifying, supportive, thought-provoking, unique, refreshing, fun, restful, well-organized...just a few of the words participants of my first Adult Day Camp shared with me throughout the event and afterwards. I am heartened by the experience, fairly convinced that this adventure will be a good fit for me and my little farm, and can say that yesterday felt totally perfect and somehow magical!

What is this new project you ask? Well, I am convinced that adults crave opportunities to come together around important topics, would like to forge meaningful relationships, desire a closer connection to nature, want new paths to creativity and play, are curious about better ways to nourish the body and soul... so I have decided to offer a variety of Adult Day Camps (here's the original blog post) with those needs in mind. I have the teaching skills and a very nurturing little farmette where these experiences can happen. Perfect combo I believe!

After the successful take on Camp One, I am SUPER excited to launch a second camp on March 9th. This one will take us into storytelling and memoir writing as ways to unlock our next best selves. There is space for a few more. Come to make friends, or bring a partner for the ride!

Here are the details and how tos...


Use Storytelling and Memoir To Help Define Our True Selves

Saturday, March 9th, 9:00 - 4:15

Deadline to reserve your space: 3/7

COST: $65 per person. 8-10 participants required to hold retreat. 

(To reserve your spot, make your payment to Sarah Brenner@bfarmin in Venmo. Also send a quick introduction to  - helps me plan for classes.

If class doesn't fill, payment will be refunded.)

In this adventure we will use storytelling and memoir to help unearth true self and reflect on the parts of us defined by others in order to move towards our next best self. We will examine the impact of family and society on choices we make in life. We will also learn and practice writing techniques associated with Memoir.

This day camp is designed for a group of eight to ten - bring a friend, or come with the desire to make a few new ones. Bring your favorite writing utensils, a writing journal or fully charged laptop.

These camps are hosted in the bright sunny farmhouse on the Driftless Dirt Farm. Dress accordingly…that means warm socks or house slippers (white floors!) and layers are best this time of year. If it's cold outside, we'll have the fire burning...or perhaps have the windows open with this early Spring!

This is something I’ve been wanting to start for a long time now! So happy that someone is doing this. Sort of a self help group for all types of “adults”. Young and old, even high school generation. I feel a deep need for this these days.

Nine years ago this July I lost my son in an accident down at Rush River. Since then I’ve self-published a book called Chin Up! By Colleen J. Barnes Anderson. It’s a poetry (free verse) book I wrote to help with my grief and to hopefully help others through theirs. Not that there may be any similarities in our loses, but just to help people with what I’ve learned.

I look forward to…

Replying to

I totally agree - we all need the chance to reflect on this life that zooms by and offers up so many bumps and bruises along the way. I am terribly sorry for your loss - I heard of the tragic accident - I'll look for your book - a great way to process grief and loss. Thank you for sharing.
