The Gaia community explores possibilities of what it means to gather with intention. With core values of reciprocity, connection & care, we're continuing to weave these baskets of support for the event. Check back in as programming details come in!


Artemis’ Garden is a space held and co-created solely for our younger Gaians, ages 6 to 16. Intended to be a special place where they can come relax, play, gather, be comfortable, feel shy, create, talk, be their truest selves, and whatever else the moment brings, Artemis’ Garden is a circle all their own nestled within the larger circle of Gaia. 


Dear youngsters,

You can look forward to things like an ongoing book swap and altar building, games, art supplies, cozy chill spaces, and classes nearby. There will also be active co-collaboration in creating and building a space and community that truly feels like it belongs to you! Can’t wait to meet you.

- Meg & co.

*Important Safety Notice*

Babies and children are treasured members of the Gaia community. We welcome attendees to bring their children with these considerations in mind:

  • While we provide a space and classes for youth ages 6 - 16, we do not provide childcare.

  • There is a river that runs through Camp Albemarle and poses a real safety concern for young children.

  • Some mothers choose to leave their toddlers and young children with a care-giver in order to fully immerse in the weekend retreat.

  • We ask that you contemplate your and your child's needs before deciding to bring them with you.

  • Please remember that every body needs to be registered for the event so look for the appropriate ticket when registering.



Nestled in the quiet North-East  side of Camp Albemarle, Oasis is a living room space to gather for quiet conversations, adaptogen teas and a small fire circle. It is a gentle space for connection and empathetic listening, stretching, moving, and dialogue. There will always be someone here who can listen and help with support, misunderstandings or conflict.  Oasis is a quiet space for vulnerability and tenderness.
