Camp Write-Up - Northwest Sufi Camp provides opportunities for Dances of Universal Peace and mystical experiences through the teachings of Murshid Samuel Lewis, Hazarat Inayat Khan and other teachers.  The camp brings together Sufi teachers, students and other friends for fellowship and community building.  It is open to all from age 3 to our beloved elders.  Here are some comments from our campers at the 2012 event:

“This is a very nourishing and inspiring camp. I hope to be here again. Thank you to the Board and Team who created and held the container for our Spirits to Dance.”

“Dances were very well integrated and enhanced teachings.”

“So many wonderful choices! And teaching staff so accessible and available.”

“Perfect balance of scheduled and nonscheduled time.”

“This was a delightful camp. Very Stimulating and challenging.”
