About Hawk Circle

Hawk Circle is nestled in the rolling valley hills of Cherry Valley, NY situated on over 200 acres of woods, fresh water springs and old pasture lands. White-tail deer freely roam, along with bobcats, bears, foxes and weasels. 


We started over 30 years ago as a wilderness summer camp for children and have expanded over the years as a place where people come, seeking healing and renewal, inspiration, sustainable life skills and a deep connection with the natural world.
