At Elements, we believe strongly in the power of mentorship. In pre-agricultural times, even young children were expected to mentor the children that were even younger. Mentorship facilitates strong bonds of connection, mutual respect, wisdom traditions and competence within the Village.
We encourage all members of the Village to engage in mentorship. Have a special skill or area of expertise to offer? In addition to featured workshops, there is a Community Offerings board available in Main Camp to announce your workshop to the community.
Elements offers several workshop spaces around camp including the amphitheater, The Haven (an all gender sacred space), Healing Pavilion and Kid's Camp. Some workshops (like plant walks) will take place in the forest.
Elements features workshops in Stone Age skills, healing arts, sustainable living and much more! We have gathered some of the most knowledgeable and talented mentors in the West to share their wisdom with our Village. Below are just some of the incredible Elements mentors who have either committed to this year or participated in past years. We appreciate your understanding that occasionally an instructor cancels last minute. Check back often. More profiles are being added.
And don't forget to check out our incredible Wild Child program for kids!
There are two types of mentorship opportunties available:
PART TIME MENTORS - Part time mentors are expected to donate around 10 hours of formal instruction in exchange for a reduced price ticket of $200.
FULL TIME MENTORS - Full time mentors are expected to donate around 20 hours of formal instruction in exchange for free entrance.
