Nature Camp Guidelines
No Smoking: Please do not smoke in the cabins as it is a fire hazard and not conducive of a healing and healthy environment.
Trash and Compost: Please dispose of all trash in garbage bins and organic matter in our designated compost area. We love to keep our planet clean and give back to it.
Eco Friendly Products: We avoid the use of toxic pharmaceuticals & commercial personal products for health reasons and to keep our land organic and chemical free, as a place for healing. Please consider using natural or biodegradable personal care products as our greywater goes back to the land to nourish our plants. We have some affordable and effective recipes made from scratch on the Home and Body Care section of our website. Baking soda, coconut oil and a few essential oils go a long way.
What to Bring: Travellers staying in our campground or hammock hut are asked to bring their own towel and camping gear (if choosing to stay in a tent) as well as warm clothes as nights can get cold. Mosquitoes are not an issue, therefore bug spray is normally unnecessary. Towels are provided only for those staying in cabins, and a flashlight also if needed, though bringing your own is suggested. Cabin guests get their own key and parking space. The rainforest can be wet and rugged, therefore come prepared with sturdy hiking shoes and fast drying clothing.
We appreciate your cooperation!

Hi. We’re The S Family – Stephan, Sara, Skyla and Sadiel.
We’re the faces behind Beyond Vitality.
IN A NUTSHELL…
We are an unschooling, home birthing, do-it-yourself kind of family. We consider ourselves very unconventional with strong family values. We really enjoy being outdoors, living a simple, healthy and conscious lifestyle and being surrounded by positive people and energy. We live an out of the box lifestyle away from the rat race. Our eco lodge and homestead is off the grid and immersed in nature. We are in the tropical rainforest of Dominica living holistically and sustainably. We forage wild edibles and grow our own organic food using permaculture techniques, use plants and medicinal herbs to heal, and try to live a balanced healthy lifestyle by learning to listen to our body and becoming proactive for our own health and happiness.
We are authentic and genuine, and certainly not perfect! We are rewilding our life, in all aspects. We came from a very different background, so every day we take it a step further, as we grow on our own journey to self-discovery, in this modern world. We are passionate life learners now and forever. In the process, we document our unique transition into this lifestyle and share everything we learn along the way!
I myself am from Northern Ontario, Canada and my husband, from Venezuela and Trinidad and Tobago. We have recently relocated to Dominica. Being nature lovers, we found our own little piece of paradise on the Nature Island and opened Beyond Vitality Nature Camp, a family run, off the grid nature camp in the beautiful rainforest of Dominica, offering work exchange & adventure programs, beautiful community style accommodations and a unique holistic health and sustainable living experience. Everything we do is with sustainable living, great health and happiness in mind.
I am also a Holistic Nutritionist and Fitness Consultant. For the past 5 years, I’ve been living and teaching my passion – holistic health. I’ve recently taken it a step further by learning to grow my own natural “medicine” and food off the land, and sharing the knowledge as I go. I educate individuals and families to gain control of their health and happiness by going back to basics with real food and holistic living!
My husband Stephan, coming from an international music background, has jumped from an urban lifestyle to living off his own land. He now knows all the ins and outs of Beyond Vitality. He is the one diving into permaculture and organic gardening books, giving excursions and hikes, while also maintaining the camps organic fruit trees and gardens. Stephan brings creative ideas and spreads his positive, laid back energy within the entire e experience true nature, organic homegrown food, natural fresh water pools, unobstructed stargazing, and the amazing sounds of the tropical rainforest. We are eager to welcome you to Beyond Vitality Nature Camp! :)
