Aged 14–17 1st–4th week
The aim of the Teen Camp is to create a programme that they love doing and which gives them a sense of ownership. In the mornings they have a choice of working as Staff or spending time in the children’s tent. In the afternoon they will be with two staff members and will collectively decide on how they want to spend their time. They might go on hikes, do arts and crafts, talk about or do spiritual exercises that will help to foster the sense of identity and independence that teens need as they transition into adulthood.

Week 1 and 2:
Rose Hain (teacher) came to the camp as a teenager more than 20 years ago. After the first years of meeting friends and the contact with the impressive nature of the mountains, she developed a deep relationship to the Sufi teachings as a young adult. Today she regularly leads meditations in the tradition of the Inayati Order. During the first weeks of the camp, she wants to work together with the young people to develop their own interests. Possible program contents can be creative shaping with natural materials, excursions into the surroundings of the mountains, long times at the river or in the blueberry fields, sporty activities or circle times for exchange and meeting each other.
Week 3 and 4:
Luz Elena Morey has been in the Inayati Order for about thirty years and has worked with children and teens for over forty years. She brings a wealth of experience in nature-connection, expressive arts and multi-cultural healing modalities. Luz Elena has helped create two schools and a healing arts center. She is looking forward to being with the teens at Zenith, helping them create a powerful week of relaxation, self expression, supportive community and adventure.

She lives and works in Southern Germany as a Social Worker, Theater- and Circuspedagogue. There she accompanies young people who do Voluntary Service and she directs projects. The essence of Taminas work is to invite people to self-reflection through creative work. She teaches an open and loving communication for a respectful cooperation in our diverse society.
