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.
