What is a WitchCamp?

Share in five days of Reclaiming-style, earth based spirituality and magic. Come and study magic and ritual in an intensive format. WitchCamp is offered to women and men at all levels of experience. Newcomers can learn the basic skills of magic and ritual, working with the elements, movement, sound and the mythological and historical framework of the Reclaiming Tradition. Advanced classes offer the chance to apply the tools of ritual to personal healing and empowerment, or focus on taking the Craft out to the wider community through the creation of public ritual, forming ongoing groups and healing issues surrounding leadership and power.

This event is a deeply moving, life changing experience. The WitchCamp will help participants to explore ways of bringing this work and inspiration into our everyday lives - creating powerful and joyful times.

Please also note that due to the nature of the magical work we will being doing together, children are unable to attend this event.

No camper is permitted to bring pets or other animals onto the property, or to disturb the natural environment in any way. Trail bikes are also not permitted on the property.

What kind of behaviour is expected at the WitchCamp?

The WitchCamp is created for people from all walks of life with the unified intention of spiritual, magical and personal growth. We hope that all attendees will take this intention seriously and infuse it with joy, humour and fun. We strongly encourage a "live and let live" attitude.

That said, there are a small number of requests which must be adhered to. Food and drink may only be consumed in the dining room or outdoors. All buildings in the camp are smoke-free zones. There will be a designated area for smokers. Mobile phones are to be used in the designated area only. In the spirit of the WitchCamp, and of Pagan spirituality in general, we ask that everyone be considerate of our environment. This includes no littering, not using standing trees or bushes for firewood or interfering with them in any way, recycling where possible and always showing respect for the earth. EarthSong WitchCamp is a strictly drug and alcohol-free event.

We ask that all participants honour these few expectations.
