Our Volunteer lead Santa Cruz Sweaty Sheep Program continues to grow, but not without you!!!  

 Email if you’d like to learn more about the program or have an interest in leading any number of fun, formative, playful meet ups/intentional communities!    We want everything from board games to dancing, Art to hiking, sailing and surfing to knitting and sipping… Get creative and playful… and help us create a holistic community of intentional recreation.

Our Goal is to create a culture of ‘Compassion’ by uniting in ‘Common-Passions’… Using play as the “Common-Unity’ of a more cohesive ‘Community!”
