Let Nature be your guide to a higher potential.

It is alone in nature without the distractions of modern civilization that we are able to communicate directly with our inner selves. This has been done for thousands of years across nearly every indigenous culture throughout history.

XCAMP is a combination of science, nature & the best human capital.

A multi day gathering in nature designed to stoke the soul and awaken the spirit. Unplug your electronics and prepare for an exploratory journey of inner and outer discovery.
