Recent Events

At the Center for Humane Living, our instructors and students are actively engaged in the community. Collaborating with other community outreach programs in the Phoenix metropolitan area, our members help support common causes with programs such as I-HELP, UMOM Events, and Feed My Starving Children events. In addition to these charitable events, we regularly participate in clean-up events, fundraising projects to assist in funding scholarships to Camp Chaos, and demonstrations at local events to raise awareness about our mission.

Camp Chaos 2023

Welcome back Camp Chaos! After a 3-year break, CHL’s Annual Camp Chaos returned under the leadership of Red Belt Michael Zimmerling. Over the weekend of August 4th-6th, CHL members ventured out to the YMCA Triangle Y camp in Oracle, AZ for an amazing weekend of martial arts, and interaction with fellow campers. During camp, we all learned from each other honing in on improving our physical abilities thru a mix of training sessions, outdoor activities, and education/developmental sessions focusing on the topic of “Teaching and Learning”. The variety of activities during camp made this experience dynamic and enjoyable, allowing everyone to create lasting memories.
