CONTACTS with email links & phones:

❤ KARMA YOGA is an opportunity to put our spiritual practice into action through service in our community. Campers help out with Camp activities, which keeps our Camp running and costs lower. Connections made through Karma Yoga service can be one of the most enriching experiences of camp.

❤ KARMA YOGA BUYOUT A limited number of karma yoga “buyouts” are available for $125 which offer campers the option to not participate in the scheduled karma yoga. “Buyouts” allow NWSC to hire local Camp Adams staff for kitchen cleanup and to provide work exchange to those willing to work double Karma Yoga shifts. While we are able to provide the buyout option for a limited number of campers, we ask everyone to stay engaged in helping out around Camp, and to remember the slogan, “Eyes See, Hands Do”.

❤ FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE NWSC offers four ways to help pay for Camp for those in financial need. It takes many hands to create Northwest Sufi Camp! Therefore, we invite those who can work to apply for Work Trade and/or double Karma Yoga shifts prior to applying for fee assistance funds. The value of applying your effort to co-create Camp will surely extend beyond the dollars you save and into the realms of deeper connection with others and appreciation for the opportunity to be of service in our community!

Low Income Discount – A Low income discount is available through Fee Assistance Committee; email

Work Trade – Work Trade positions offer fee reductions in exchange for help in the kitchen, Kids & Teens camps, the Earth Plane crew and more. Please email the Camp Manager at  to apply.

Double Karma Yoga – Campers who work double Karma Yoga shifts will receive $125 reduction in camp fees. The number of double shifts awarded is based on the number of Karma Yoga “buyouts”. Apply early, as slots are limited; email

Fee Assistance Partial fee reduction may be possible in cases of financial hardship. Apply early, as funds are limited. To apply, please email before deadline of July 31st.

NEW THIS YEAR: THE MAHBUDA BORDEN SCHOLARSHIP FUND – Northwest Sufi Camp has been given a generous bequest by the estate of our beloved friend and long-time camper, Mahbuda Borden, of an annual full scholarship to be given to someone who would otherwise not be able to attend camp.  If you wish to apply for the 2018 scholarship, please contact the fee assistance committee at:
