2020 Activities

This retreat is co-created which means those that come provide the activities.  If you have a skill. a passion to share, or a topic you want to discuss, please let the activity coordinators know and they can work with you to find a time to offer this over the camps duration.  Let them know what the topic is, what resources are needed if any, what support you need to run the activity etc.  You can ask for a koha or set a fee for participants to cover any resources. 

We like to find space for discussions as a group also - if you have a pressing topic of interest, let us know and we will try to weave this in.

There will be a red tent available throughout the whole retreat.  This is a place for honouring the feminine, a time for rest, laughter, silence, ritual and all things in between.   Women's circle will being held also.   

We would love to offer a chill out tent/marquee where attendees can hang out and rest, chill out in silence, sit in quiet space with one another as the retreat can be busy with activity and people and it is important to have a zone that honours some quiet for those that need it.  We need a marquee for this so if you happen to have one or know of one available PLEASE let us know!
