Since it’s the first year, you probably don’t know what to expect. So I thought I would give you some tips, you can thank me later.

We aren’t exaggerating when we say Camp Mary Orton is majestic. It is tucked away and surrounded by trees. Spend the day outside soaking it all in.

5. #SelfCare
There is a reason this is a trending topic lately. There are several experience stations at the event where you can get a little pampering.

6. Unplug
While you’re surrounded by trees and beauty, you’ll want to put your phone away and bask in it.

Take some time in one of the classes to process how your summer went and meditate on how you want to start your autumn.

Camp Mary Orton might be one of the best hidden gems in Columbus. While it is a functioning camp, you can’t just go hang out there anytime you choose without a rental. Now is your chance to!

In between the classes and the exploring, throw down your mat or a blanket and have a snack in this scenic setting.
