Welcome to Camp Tuku

Camp Tuku is a traditional sleepaway camp with a mindfulness approach! We are located in Prescott, Arizona and welcome girls and boys ages 6-13 from all over the country to their home away from home for the summer. In everything we do – from archery, low ropes, arts & crafts, swimming, we do it mindfully – always integrating the mind, body and heart to build resilience in our campers!

Camp Tuku - Activities

A New Kind of Camp

In addition to all the fun activities that campers from 6 to 13 will enjoy, our curriculum is designed to equip children with skills that will benefit them throughout their lives. After their time at Camp Tuku, your children will:

  1. KNOW: how to manage stress and be resilient, enabling them to be happier and healthier.
  2. HAVE: simple, proven techniques that kids can apply at any time to manage their emotional state, tap into their creativity, and be even more resourceful in order to overcome obstacles in their lives.
  3. FEEL: happy and excited about connecting with new friends and the fun activities they’ve enjoyed together.

Mind

Daily mindfulness practices encourage campers to cultivate self-awareness and open their minds to a greater sense of calm and balance. Unplugging from technology and actively engaging in outdoor activities strengthen their connection to nature’s resources and teaches them ways to protect and preserve the natural environment.

Body

Fun and engaging activities that include yoga, arts and crafts, music, gardening, cooking, nature exploration, challenge courses, hiking, swimming, and water activities provide campers with multiple daily opportunities to grow their self-confidence as they challenge themselves both physically and mentally. All meals will be healthy AND yummy, and campers will participate in an experience of growing food in an organic garden and interacting with farm life.

Heart

We offer a social-emotional learning curriculum aimed at building resilience, based on scientific research by the Institute of HeartMath.   This curriculum is delivered through team-building games and activities. Children learn how to better express their emotions, such as appreciation and compassion for themselves and others. They practice how to communicate effectively and develop creative solutions in a fun and collaborative environment
