Event description


Think of the splendour of The Canadian Rockies – beautiful right? Then there is beauty that cannot be imagined, and that's the awakening deep within us. If awakening is your love, then you will find it at the annual camping trip with John de Ruiter, at the David Thompson Resort.

This is a gorgeous way to introduce yourself to John and his teachings, with two meetings with John per day, interspersed with open mics. You may find yourself at a meal with John and Leigh Ann discussing meaning in life with friends. Otherwise roam the campground and meet hundreds of other people who are living for the same essence. Relax among the trees or go for a swim in the glacier lake down the mountain trail. There will be bonfires, parties, dancing, even a movie night!

Set-up Day - Wednesday August 23

This is a set-up day only. Please do not arrive before 3:00pm unless you are part of the set-up team. There are no meetings or open mics scheduled for this day, it is an impromptu day.
