Campo de Zen Commando

Camp Zen Commando (CZC) is a "mind-body" adventure camp located in the foothills of Lagunas, Costa Rica on the Pacific Coast...approximately five miles from Dominical, Costa Rica's premiere surf destination.   CZC rests on two acres and is surrounded by pristine beauty that includes a lush tropical rain forest, flowing streams, and bountiful fruits and vegetables. What makes CZC special is the peace, beauty, and solitude of the location. Within short walking distance,  there is full access to numerous swimming holes and waterfalls as well as a nature preserve with countless hiking trails and vistas. The camp amenities include a fitness facility with weights, yoga / meditation hall, wifi, and a main facility for meals, workshops, and socializing.

I served in U.S. special operations for over 20 years, five of those in direct line of combat. After military service, I spent time in the corporate and private trenches of Silicon Valley, California, where I learned how to operate in a new, technology-driven battlefield. Now, based in the serene jungles of Costa Rica, I guide mind-body adventure experiences at Camp Zen Commando, a total mind-body adventure camp.

"My purpose in life is to help you succeed in any battle you may encounter in today’s world, whether at home, in public, or in the workplace."

I’m a distinguished combat veteran, successful entrepreneur, writer, high ranking endurance athlete, long-distance thru-hiker, survivalist, and problem solver. All curriculum and courses taught are created by me and unlike any other, you’ll ever see or experience. Let me take you to the next level!!!  More Here
