Family Residency 2021

June 1 - August 31, 2021

Reunite with friends and family at Karmê Chöling this summer!

Apply for Family Residency

Families, relatives, and friends who have not been able to see each other because of the pandemic are invited to reconnect in the magical realm of Karme Choling. This is an opportunity to get out of the house, have lots of land and space to explore, and safely connect with people you love and miss. It will not be a typical Family Camp as we know it, but we could call it a Camp of Families.

Who can be a KLC resident this summer?

EVERYONE is invited!
Students, work-from-home folks, retirees - all have enjoyed residency at Karmê Chöling over the last year and YOU CAN TOO!

KCL currently has a household of 28 people all living and essentially quarantining together. They are following CDC guidelines, which have been reasonable and accommodating. We have put together a list of questions families have asked about this summer residency and responses from Karme Choling. If you are wondering if this might be right for your family, or how it could work, please click HERE.

This self-organized program is flexible and KCL wants to help make it work for you.
By coming together on the KCL land, we are joining earth and sky and rediscovering the art of being human together.

Please email Tracy at kclfamilycamp108@gmail.com if you have any questions or would like more information.

Quarantine Policy

As of 4/15/21, our policy is that ANYONE wishing to enter the KCL main house must quarantine at Ashoka Bhavan and take a COVID19 test before entering. Quarantine periods (which are treated as gentle in-house retreats) typically last 7-10 days depending on the speed of test results. During this time, quarantiners are able to access KCL's outdoor spaces. 

With the vaccine rollout progressing quickly, this policy is likely to shift by midsummer. All applicants will be informed swiftly if quarantine restrictions change.
