Serenity Community Garden

The Camp’s Meadow Lodge offers a unique program to our adolescent population in the Serenity Community Garden.

What is the Serenity Garden?

The Serenity Garden at The Camp Recovery Center

Adolescent patients have the opportunity to cultivate fruits, vegetables and other plants in the Serenity Community Garden. This garden serves as an opportunity for the patient to leave a piece of them behind when they graduate from the program.

What are the benefits of the garden?

Benefits of the Serenity Garden

Not only does this garden help promote caring and concern amongst the patients and staff, but it also helps instill traditional and wholesome values in adolescents participating in the program, including:

  • Learning about the benefits of organic gardening in ways that translate into their own recovery from chemical dependency
  • Staying connected to physical activity in an outdoor environment that promotes peacefulness and positive self-esteem
  • Encouraging learning how to build something up rather than tearing it down through providing care, attention, and love.
Experiential Therapies

The Camp Recovery Center offers a variety of outdoor-focused experiential therapies.

Refreshing Location

Nestled on 25 acres in the redwoods of the Santa Cruz Mountains, The Camp’s grounds provide a serene location for clients to recalibrate and refresh as they focus on recovery.

Dedication to Success

For nearly 30 years, The Camp has provided cutting-edge rehabilitation. Our clinical team creates individualized treatment plans to give our clients the tools they need for a successful recovery.

It was only through the treatment programs at The Camp that I was able to find lasting recovery. I can't recommend them enough!
