2023 "Kids For Compassion"
Summer Camp at Goatlandia

NEW! We've expanded Kids For Compassion Summer Camp for 2023!

This year, Goatlandia's 5-day camp will take place in July-August.
Camp is offered in two age groups with two choices for dates. Twelve student spaces are available for each session, with one spot  available for scholarship per session (four total scholarships available.)

Session 2 for kids age 10-12: July 10-14 or July 17-21

Our children are our future! Each week-long day camp aims to instill in students an appreciation and respect for the world we live in, as well as kindness and compassion for the animals we share it with, ourselves, and each other. We are so excited to teach our students how our daily actions can help create a kinder, healthier, happier world.

The camp will feature different teaching topics and activities each day including farm animal anatomy and behavior, nutritious eating habits, environmental practices, gardening and healthy soil, diversity and inclusion in our community, compassion and empathy, and of course lots of fun arts and crafts projects. We will also have guest speakers and presentations from our friends in the community.

Camp is taught in a small, secure setting by teachers who carry knowledge and experience in the topics covered. We'll also includes a group tour of Goatlandia for students and their families!

Gabi McCulloch

Camp Instructor for 10-12 age group

Gabi is an artist and educator whose passion for both animals and activism began, like many, with meeting Jane Goodall as a child. After reading her book Harvest for Hope at age 10, they began a journey of activism in practice (vegetarian & vegan eating) and through direct action in pursuit of climate justice. This passion has also led them to working in outdoor and experiential education, including a California naturalist certification through the UC system, and teaching outdoor ed, Kindergarten, and 1st grade at Marin Horizon School in Mill Valley. 

But that’s not all! Gabi also spent the first part of their career as a working actor, so they also bring a passion for performance art to their work as an educator. In their spare time, you can find Gabi long boarding around the Outer Richmond in San Francisco, swimming at China Beach (yes, even on cold days) and hiking throughout the Bay Area. They are very excited to bring their passion for performance art and experiential education to Goatlandia team this summer!
