Sunday May 1st, 10-3
May Day Family Fun Fest
Open to everyone!
Please join us for a day of fun and education. Hosted by our Partner Family HEART Camp. Family HEART Camp is a unique community experience for all people who long for more Harmony, Ease, Authenticity, Respect, and Trust in their families, in their communities, and in the world. Grounded in the principles of Nonviolent Communication, our camps offer an unforgettable lived experience of compassionate community, in places of natural beauty, for people of all ages. Come join us and try it out. We will also have an offering by Brett, former Patchwork teacher and the staff with be hanging out to help with kids play music or whatever comes up.
A message from our Host:
Dear Patchwork Community,
I imagine you might be asking yourself, “Why would I come to the May Day Community Fun Fest?” Or maybe you aren’t – in either case, I’d like to tell you why I’m going: to experience compassionate community in a multi-generational setting. I’m also looking forward to having fun, connecting and learning with the Patchwork community.
What will we do, you ask? We start out the day with circle games, drumming and getting to know each other, and then we move right into our experience of Community Sourced Programming (CSP). This structure offers everyone in the community – of any age – the chance to share activities they are passionate about. With the support of our volunteer staff, this means there is something for people of every age. For example active field games, craft offerings, dress-up, imagination and improv games. Or how about a session to practice Nonviolent Communication, conflict resolution or just listening to each other? You are welcome to play with your kids, with someone else’s kids, or with other adults. There is no “should” and lots of “yes” to freedom of choice.
After lunch, some free time and more CSP, we’ll close our time together by playing circle games and reflecting on the quality of our experience by sharing Celebrations and Mournings. We’ll go home tired and fulfilled, with some new friends, new connections and new experiences. Won’t you join us?
Director, Family HEART Camp
