Thank you for an amazing camp. Our daughter usually does about 10 camps every summer and this camp has had such an impact on her that as soon as I picked her up on Friday she said please make sure that you signed me up for next year. She has not stopped talking about the memories she has made and the lessons that she had learned. I think you beautiful ladies for a wonderful camp. I wish you all the best of luck in any endeavor you have.~Camper’s Mom
This week at Camp I learned about my fears. I learned that I was afraid for no reason, and that I can do the things I was afraid of. Like riding a bike, or making new friends. I have courage now. And confidence. I feel like my life will be better because now I know I can try new things. Even if it is hard at first, I know I can try.

Since my Mom and Dad separated I have been mad at my brother a lot, and unhappy and feeling a lot of stress. Sophia Camp has made me feel loved. People listen to me, and it showed me to breathe when I feel stress. Now, my Mom and I breathe together. And my brother says I am nicer. My heart is so big and so happy. Thank you!

The Sophia Camp was everything we could have hoped for and then some. There is such a strong pull on girls, and much of it can be negative, or at the least, overwhelming. This camp has shown the girls another perspective, one based in self-respect, self-confidence and in personal awareness and truth. Emma came away with skills to stand firm and tall in who she really is, and to embrace her nature and naturalness. Every activity, guest, meal and project helped to build a greater sense of personal power through positive choice. We will carry the many joys and blessings of this magical week throughout the coming year, and then some. ~ Camper’s Mom
Thank you so much for holding camp and allowing Talia to attend. It was such a positive experience! Talia really enjoyed bonding with the other girls–that alone is priceless. It’s a gift to know that it’s possible to form new relationships outside the usual circle. She also very much enjoyed the pool time and the walks.
She talked quite a bit about the museum tour and dressing in period clothing, so I know that was fun for her. I also think the activity where others filled her journal with positive descriptors was really great. So often (particularly at this age), girls tear each other down. I am certain it was nice for all of the girls to experience the power of positive perception and acceptance.
Talia talked a lot about the camp counselors and seemed to really enjoy their perspective and spending time with them. She looked forward to going every day and was sad when it was over (both signs of a really successful experience). She would love a reunion.
Again, thank you so much for everything. Honestly, it was all just GREAT.

Thank you all for creating a space where our daughters were able to grow both separately & together. Ella enjoyed her week at Sophia Camp. She especially liked swimming & the self care products. She really seemed to be interested in the Ayurveda and the qualities specific to the different doshas. I also think the yoga may have contributed to some emotional release 🙂 All in all it was a great value, a wonderful week & a reunion sounds like a great idea!

I for ONE couldn’t be more impressed w/ EVERY aspect of the camp, leaders, teachings etc ~ the girls were truly bonded by the end & Bryn looks forward to the “reunion” in the fall. ALL involved received Value, Positive Encouragement, Support & BLISS! xoxo

And I just want to thank you both so very much. You might not know how much we needed this experience for Emma. I am eternally grateful that you welcomed Emma as a junior counselor…having her surrounded by such wonderful girls and by the two of you, by Marjorie and Meagan, Areli and Melissa, by each guest…she was finally able to see in others what she might want to become…grounded, able to see the beauty in all, fearless, expansive, joyful. There is no price on this sort of unfolding…I’m just so glad for Emma. I send you both much love….
