History

Far Horizons Camp was founded in 1954 by G.V. and Mary Hull. The camp was created as a practical experiment in applying theosophical principles to daily life. The Theosophical Society is a worldwide organization founded in 1875 and dedicated to better understanding our place in the universe as well as the purpose and meaning in our lives.

A central premise of Theosophy (also called the ageless wisdom) is that we are all one. Respect for every religious tradition is a prominent theosophical principle. Membership in the Theosophical Society, or in the camp itself, is not required.

Far Horizons functions in partnership with the US Forest Service.

An All-Volunteer Board

The Far Horizons mission is to foster an experience of awareness and aliveness for all.

The board of Far Horizons is the official body serving to fulfill this mission. The board is a volunteer committee of elected camp members who are also members of the Theosophical Society. With direct responsibility for camp operations, programs, facilities, marketing and management, the board is committed to the long-term viability of our precious camp environment.

There are 7 board members, each whom serve for 3 years in that capacity. Each year, some board seats are reelected and incumbents are retained. This provides ongoing stability to the board by ensuring the previous year’s knowledge is retained and carried forward.
