Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to be Buddhist to attend a Dharma Camps event:
Not at all! Our events are open to people of all levels of experience with Buddhism, our goal is to offer a very approachable introduction. People of all faiths are welcome!
What age are Dharma Camps events for:
Unless otherwise specified our events are for adults (or mature teens).
Do I need any art experience to attend:
No art experience neccesary. For some of our events we include a theme based art project as part of the program. The purpose of this is to connect more deeply with the material and enjoy some creative play. Even those who describe themselves as "not creative at all" have found enjoyment and meaning in our projects.
Where is Dharma Camps located:
We do not have a permanent location and host events at various locations. We are based in Santa Cruz, CA and currently hold almost all our events at Land of Medicine Buddha: 5800 Prescott Road, Soquel, CA 95073, USA
Can I attend a retreat in the middle of a series:
Of course! We have chosen some of our retreat themes in a series to provide continuity for those who choose to attend more than one, but each retreat is a complete stand alone event. No need to have attended any previous events to understand or enjoy!
