DescriptionNew to polyamory?
A poly pro, but open to new connections?
Poly-saturated, but wonder where your tribe is?
Want to take your relationships to a new level? Endless Poly Summer isn’t quite like anything else.
Here is where you can meet other poly people at a deeper level, learn the skills needed to handle your relationships, and become a part of a supportive network of people who share your relationship values.
What is tribe? Tribe is your community, the people who accept you as you are.
Spend up to 5 days in a rustic woods-and-water setting, hang out around a bonfire, enjoy a song circle, cuddle up at a snuggle party, learn to take your relationships to the next level, and build connections with others that last all year long! At Endless Poly Summer, we invite top-notch presenters, and live, work, learn and play together for up to 5 days or more.
Camp takes place at a shady campground with a wild, whitewater stream alongside, about 3 hours west of the Baltimore and Washington DC area and 2.5 hours southeast of Pittsburgh. There’s also a guest house, rustic cabins, and a nearby motel; indoor accommodations are available for additional cost.
The Wisdom of the Tribe
We have an eclectic yet integrated approach to creating an environment that allows each person to thrive. We bring in top-notch presenters who share a wide range of tools, techniques, and insights for dealing with all aspects of relationships, sexuality, and self-integration. The result is that our participants have a huge pool of technologies and practices to draw from. Each person is fully "at choice" in any of our events, and each person is free to use the insights and practices that work best for them.
There's Time to Get to Know Each Other
Not just another superficial meet-and-greet, EPS camp is 5 days long so that there is time for real connections to be made, and real interactions to flow from these connections. Campers help each other to work through issues that may arise, using new tools and techniques where appropriate, with the guidance of our experienced support team.
Only One Workshop at a Time
There is none of the scattered energy that many events have. For most of camp, there is one workshop at a time, chosen for its critical value for virtually all campers. Those who choose to go to a workshop will have an experience shared with most of the other campers, building the context for ongoing relationships and adding to the common skill-sets available to all campers. Certain topics may be critical for some people, but not relevant to many others; these will also be offered one at a time, with free time and recreational and connecting activities as alternatives.
Group Practices Supporting Transparency and Understanding
Most of these are created and facilitated by campers. We have morning whole group check-ins, afternoon community circles, and one on one support whenever you need it.
Making new connections. Deepening our existing relationships. Gaining relationship skills and personal empowerment techniques. Building our tribe that stays with us all year long. Many participants can expect to wind up connected with other participants on an ongoing basis, through e-lists, frequent gatherings, personal relationships, and joint projects.
