The University of Wyoming Department of Philosophy is once again hosting their Stoic Camp, running from May 14 to May 18, 2018 – an excellent opportunity not only to study and apply Stoic philosophy, but to do so in a setting of considerable natural beauty – Table in the Wilderness camp, in Centennial, Wyoming.
Activities for the event include intensive small and large group studies of Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations, talks by invited speakers, early morning and evening hikes, partaking in good food, as well as unstructured down time. Other outdoor activities participants have the opportunity to engage in include hiking, bonfires, and waking up to the sunrise on the final morning (a direct response to one of the Roman Emperor’s recommended meditations).
The goals of the Stoic Camp are to experiment with living in a thoroughly philosophical way, using the Stoics as models, and to explore what it means to live intentionally. Registration for the camp is US$300.00, and includes lodging, meals and books. Students may inquire about discounted prices for students.
