Co-Creation

The purpose of our time together is to share our skills with one another and build relationships.  Therefore the camps are created by everyone sharing their skills as much, or as little, as they feel comfortable.  People are able to join in if and when they choose to. 

At past camps we have had activities such as book binding, fletching, flax weaving, candle making, yoga, skipping, wild food discussions, insect discoveries, wacky science, mid-winter festivals, lantern walks, sledging, paper crafts, coffee connoisseurs, whittling, recipe swaps, playing, and much more.   

Prior to camp, the people coming offer to take an activity then a 'loose and flexible' timetable is created that guides the time together.  If there is sufficient interest in the activity it is run by the person who wishes to take it on the day with no pressure and loads of support. It can be as grand or as simple as they wish to make it.

Additional to the activities there are discussion sessions where a pre-determined topic is discussed.  These can run simultaneous to activities.  These provide a chance for in-depth discussion in a group and small groups to allow debate, questions, support and information to be shared.  Topics range from world wide issues, to personal struggles and celebrations.  The topics are generated by those who attend.
