All in the Circle: Creative Arts & Nature Camp is carefully designed to give children the opportunity to fall in love with the earth and to be co-creators of a culture of kindness. Informed by the wisdom, teachings, and experience of educators, spiritual leaders, and developmental psychologists, children gain the skills and “know-how” to live peacefully with each other and the natural world.

Due to COVID-19, All in the Circle was canceled for both the summers of 2020 and 2021. We look forward to the camp's return in 2022! 

Please stay tuned for opportunities to get involved in future years. MNIPL's work with youth continues in many different ways, especially through our Youth N' Power program, where youth grades 5-12 learn all about skills to become community leaders for climate justice!

All in the Circle is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.

We care for what we love; infusing children, youth, and adults with a felt sense of connection to each other and the natural world is key to the kind of transformation for which the climate crisis calls. Facilitating this kind of transformation is core to our mission at Minnesota Interfaith Power & Light.
