At Camp Tuku, our mission is to provide a holistic approach designed to integrate the mind, body, and heart and teach children how to nurture their inner worlds.  Our curriculum is based on several core tenets that will help children, counselors, and staff to realize their inherent potential to be mindful, loving, creative, and resourceful individuals.

As a staff or a counselor, not only will you be the campers’ mother, father, friend and counselor, you will also have the same opportunities as the children to enjoy the wonders of nature and be able to tap into your limitless potential as joyful, compassionate human beings.

During our 1 week of residential camp and 4 weeks of virtual weeks of camp, you will get to set up shop in the great outdoors, explore the Granite Dells in Prescott & enjoy some of the unique benefits that Camp Tuku has to offer:

  1. A dynamic opportunity to be a positive influence and role model in the lives of young people.
