Imagine, Create, Play

Join Christine Gautreaux and Phil Porter in celebrating the 30th year of InterPlay in Seattle at the annual InterPlay Summer Camp on Vashon Island near Seattle.

Join them in a weekend of making stuff up on the spot out of the magical, mysterious and mundane details of your life. Rediscover joy and delight, make new friends, connect with old friends, laugh, explore and wallow in the sheer beauty of the island. And someone else will do all the cooking!

InterPlay can change your life and change your world. See things in new ways, shake off the old. Get support from an affirming community. Find some new challenges if you are looking for them—stretch yourself toward a fuller glory! Share your stories and movement and sounds along the way.

Treat yourself to a time of self-indulgence!

Cost: Tuition $300 ($250 before July 15th) Housing and Meals ($200 camping, $250 triple, $300 double)
