Mountain Respite Camp
Mountain Respite Camp (MRC) is a peer lead camp for individuals living with or affected by mental illness. MRC serves residents of Orange County, Los Angeles County, and surrounding areas.
Clean air. Perfect weather. Lots to do. And “interesting” people to meet. A break from the noise of the city, this peer-led community travels to Angelus Oaks California for a weekend excursion in nature.
Camp is intended as both an escape from the challenges of living with a psychiatric disability and an opportunity to bond with people who are strangers yet know intimately what everyone else is going through.
This is a place where a person can let down their guard and just be themselves; for some it will be the light at the end of a dark, scary road. At the Mountain Respite Camp, participants can hike, swim, craft, walk tightropes, and build campfires - all in a communal atmosphere, surrounded by the peace of nature and grace of friends.
Being given this chance to decompress and take a “vacation from mental illness” aids in the wellbeing of anyone with psychiatric challenges.
