Affordable Room & Board • Tuition: Pay what you can!

Susan Main will be joined by Stephanie Pile, Laurie Adams and Carol Ann Fusco.

Come to the redwoods for a refreshing weekend of InterPlay with Susan Main and a grand group of playmates. Take a big swig of grace at River‘s Bend Retreat Center nestled in wine country beauty near the town of Philo, 30 minutes from Northern California's scenic Pacific Ocean. Walk in nearby redwoods. Swim in the river. Enjoy a campfire. Sing camp songs with Stephanie Pile and Carol Ann Fusco and follow InterPlayer Laurie Adams, Director at River's Bend, to connect with this beautiful place on Earth in playful ways.

InterPlay leaders are invited to lead workshops one afternoon.

Susan Main has been a member of Wing It! Performance Ensemble since 1995 and led workshops internationally. She loves humor and truth-telling - well, she just loves Interplay. Two years ago she followed a dream to move to the small coastal town of Gualala, where she lives on her family's 40 acres in a 28 ft travel trailer while she slowly decides if/how/what to build a house (she's slow at major decisions!) She lives way off the grid with no water well or electricity and has used her active imagination, creativity and humor to come up with all sorts of ways to live simply yet comfortably." Susan is prepared to lead you to hang and loll about in inspired ways! Please bring a pad/towel/reclining beach chair that you would feel comfy lying on outside at night.

River cabins, pleasant rooms or tent cabins make InterPlay Camp an affordable journey (See costs below). Meals are lovingly prepared. Tuition for the event will be up to you: pay what you can! (Generally, the tuition for an event like this is in the $150 range.)
