  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are a remote community, and transportation is limited. We have an alcohol and drug-free campus, but there is one bar within walking distance for the who want the occasional drink. We attract people with a love for education and the arts, and most staff content themselves with staying on campus and relishing the company of fellow creatives, the beautiful surroundings, and great food. Many of the adults on campus spend their free time dancing, practicing instruments, making art, writing, and meditating. If that sounds like fun to you, please join us!
