Announcement: Upcoming Stoic Camp in the Rockies

Upcoming Stoic Camp in the Rockies

The Rockies

The University of Wyoming Philosophy Department will be hosting a five-day Stoic Camp at Table in the Wilderness Camp, located in Centennial, WY, running from May 16-20, 2016.  A central goal of the camp is “to experiment with living in a thoroughly philosophical way, using the stoics as our model, and to explore what it means to live intentionally.”

The five days will include rigorous study of two key Stoic texts (Epictetus’ Enchiridion and Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations), guided by philosophy faculty and guest speakers. The location also affords excellent opportunities for outdoor activities such as hiking and bonfires, welcoming the sunrise, and appreciation of the natural environment.

Meals are included in the price for the camp (at present yet to be determined).  The organizers are attempting to maintain prices at no more than $300 per participant.   For more information about the camp, please see the Stoic Camp 2016 website.  You can also email them directly at mailto:uwyostoiccamp2015@gmail.com
