Welcome to the Hub for Shambhala Families and Children


Shambhala Families and Children’s Programming is about engaging as a community, whether we have children or not, to support the future of our society. Together, we can create a space for children and parents to connect to their own goodness, wisdom, kindness, and strength.

SMC Family Camp 2020

Please join us at Shambhala Mountain Center Family Camp as we explore together “Family as Universe: Connecting the Promise with the Perils of These Times” August 1-9. We hope that you and your family will find sources of inspiration, connection and fun!

Because you will all be joining from your homes, camp this year is designed so you can “create your own adventure”. Many offerings are pre-recorded and will be available for the entire month or will be on Zoom and you can join at the time they are happening or access the recording later.


Family Camp has begun, and we are joyfully awaiting your arrival! We would like to extend a personal invitation to join us for this year’s Family Camp. Over the years, Karmê Chöling Family Camp has been our training ground, and has helped to raise us as good, kind and brave human beings. It is a family lineage that invites us to be present and extend ourselves; to be kind, patient, generous, loving, vulnerable, gentle, and brave. This year, through the loving attention and care of many hearts and hands, the magic and brilliance of Family Camp is accessible from your homes throughout the month of August.
As a living lineage, your presence is always welcomed. Family Camp is nurtured by each and every one of us. To keep its brilliant light burning, a light that radiates from our hearts, and extends in all directions, we would love to have you join us for the various offerings this month from wherever you are.

Scan the list of gatherings and pick something that piques your fancy. And, Sign up here to extend an invitation to your friends across the country (or the world!) Children are strongly encouraged to lead a group!
