Activities: Students will think as individuals but decide as a group, moving through the labyrinth of life. Inside the labyrinth, students will be confronted with challenging, exciting, and sometimes scary questions. Thankfully, they will utilize philosophers of the past as guides . . . but each decision ultimately rests with the group. Although they work as a collective consciousness, students will develop personal journals, which they can keep forever, serving as a story of what the meaning of life is to them.

For questions contact

Great for students who want to:

  • think deeply about the meaning of life
  • put philosophy into practice
  • take control of their own lives
  • understand themselves better
  • think more systematically about deep issues
  • wrestle and dance with life’s most mysterious questions


Instructor: Lu-Vada Dunford (PhD Candidate)

Lu-Vada Dunford started choosing her own philosophy adventure at a very young age. After living around the world, she went to South Korea, where she learned Korean and made choices that lead to work in television, radio, and movies. Then she came to a point in her life where she had three choices: stay in Korea, go to Iran, or study philosophy in Canada. That choice, and many others, brought her to this Meaning of Life Philosophy Summer Camp! What will she choose next? Only time will tell where her next philosophy adventure will take her! 


After my camp you will see your life in an entirely new way. You will be wiser than everyone you know about the mystery of the meaning of life. Students who have the courage to examine themselves will get the most out of this camp. Do you have what it takes to choose your own philosophy on the most important adventure of life?!”  Lu-Vada Dunford (PhD Candidate, Department of Philosophy, University of Toronto).
