Good Times XV Summer InterPlay Camp

Unlock the Wisdom of Your Body
Coke Tani and Phil Porter

Vashon Island, WA

Friday, August 30 beginning with dinner at 5:30 pm (check in time begins at 4 pm) through Sunday, Sept. 1st at 4 pm

InterPlayers have long known that movement, story, sound, silence and contact are unique and powerful ways of knowing. We can claim who we are, what is important to us, how we want to be in community even if it pushes against what is presented to us in the wider world.

During the 2024 Summer Camp weekend, we will have lots of opportunity to create, play, reflect, connect, and refresh while we reflect on some of the deeper possibilities of body wisdom. How do we reflect on our body data? How do we “change our practices to change our lives?” How do we increase our understanding and appreciation of the wide variety of wisdom that hasn’t had the space to be heard? How do we give voice to the more difficult challenges of working and playing together?

InterPlay Leader Coke Tani and InterPlay Co-founder Phil Porter will lead the group in a wide range of play and share some of their own experience with claiming their own body wisdom. We will en-“joy” each other and revel in this beautiful setting on Vashon Island.

Cost: Tuition $300 ($250 before July 15th) Housing and Meals ($250 camping, $300 triple, $350 double)
