Embark on a transformative journey with us at High Camp Hut, nestled in the breathtaking San Juan Mountains near Telluride, Colorado. Over four immersive days, we'll escape the hustle and bustle of daily life and immerse ourselves in the serene beauty of this high-alpine refuge.

Led by acclaimed author and athlete Katie Arnold and located at 11,000 feet in a picturesque meadow, High Camp offers a serene retreat away from modern distractions and an opportunity to tap into your natural flow state.Accessible via a scenic 2.5-mile hike (your gear will be transported for you), this off-the-grid sanctuary provides the perfect setting for rejuvenation and self-discovery.

Experience the simple yet profound rhythms of life at High Camp, including trail running, hiking writing, meditation, and communal gatherings. Each day begins with a tranquil meditation followed by a hearty breakfast, setting the tone for exploration and reflection.

Venture out on morning runs and hikes along the mountain trails, embracing the opportunity to connect with nature and listen to your body's cues. In the afternoons, join guided writing sessions where the energy of the mountains inspires creativity and introspection. Whether you're an experienced writer or just beginning your writing journey, all are welcome and everyone has a story to tell. 

Late afternoon’s are yours to indulge in personal activities such as soaking in the wood-fired hot tub, restorative flow yoga with Kelly Burns, wandering through the forest, or simply soaking up the tranquility of the surroundings. Together, we'll explore practices to cultivate flow and bring a sense of ease and wonder into our daily lives.
