Community Shabbat Campout Retreat at Living Tree Alliance in Moretown | July 28–30
Join us July 28–30 for a weekend to immerse in the natural world and connect with meaningful multigenerational community, farm-fresh food, river swims, nature walks, song, meditation, and so much more!
Enjoy the beauty of connecting with the earth, your food, and rest as a form of cultural revitalization. There will be time to explore the woods and river and immerse in the beauty of summer in Vermont, with family-friendly programming as well as contemplative time for adults, time to get your hands in the soil, and interact with the farm animals, and time to just be. We are grateful to partner with a diverse array of teachers, kohanot (Hebrew priestesses), rabbis, musicians, and leaders for an enriching weekend!
Rustic camping sites provided in the farm field. If you prefer not to camp, there are many local bed and breakfasts in the area—be sure to book ahead of time.
Our family camp program—which includes Friday dinner, Saturday lunch and dinner, and Sunday breakfast—is offered on a sliding scale:
- $299–$450 per adult
- $95–$125 per child
- children under 3 free
There is an additional sliding-scale camping fee of $25–$40 per night.
Local residents also have the option of attending just the Friday-evening program and Shabbat dinner ($36 per adult, $18 per child 5–16 years old; under 5 free) and/or the Saturday-morning puppet show ($18 per family).
Your generous contribution to this event enables us to keep it sustainable and accessible to all. Applicable program fees are due in full by June 25; $75 deposits are nonrefundable and count towards full tuition.

Every participant is asked to contribute toward the event in leadership, clean-up, and your special sauce as together we REVITALIZE CULTURE!
