Digital Detox: Unplug and Reimagine Your Life

Feb 02 - 04, 2018 Begins in 2 months
with Adam Smiley Poswolsky, Brooke Dean & Zev Felix

Join us for a very special Digital Detox retreat, in memory of Levi Felix, founder of Camp Grounded: Summer Camp For Adults and Digital Detox. Levi was a modern-day philosopher who inspired thousands of people to find balance and joy in the digital age. Join members of Levi’s family for a tech-free wellness retreat where attendees give up their smartphones and gadgets in exchange for an off-the-grid experience of personal growth, reflection, mindfulness, creativity, community, and (dis)connection.



Experience twenty-seven acres of Pacific coastline paradise.
