Since 1941, Camp Van Es has invited people to grow their spirituality through encounters with nature. 

Throughout the year, we offer a number of programs, camps, and opportunities for children and adults from all walks of life to practice inclusive, contemplative spirituality, while learning from the land.


Camp Van Es hosts both "in house" programs, and provides hospitality for programs run by outside groups and community partners. At this time, we only promote our "in house" programs.
