Wild Maine Witchcamp, Oct 8th-14th 2017

 

Though her errand is fearsome, is it a relief for Vasilisa to leave her stepmother’s house to wander the dark woods? How does she summon her bravery as she returns with the requested light and its unrequested effects? What is she thinking as she develops the skills to connect to a broader community?

Pick up your doll and venture into the woods with Vasilisa . . . Deepen the skills that sustain you in wild places . . . Allow the wisdom of your ancestors to guide you and receive the fierce mentorship of Baba Yaga . . . Give and receive the stern love of the Goddess who lives behind a fence of bones . . .

 

The Wild Maine Witchcamp is a gathering in the Reclaiming tradition, with specific values of inclusivity, physical & financial accessibility, and a deep connection with the Maine land as well as the earth in general.  Camp will be located in a beautiful forest on a stunning piece of coastline, with tall trees and beautiful beaches.

Paths

Led by experienced facilitators, these Paths (like classes) will meet each morning and work with a particular theme or skill set throughout the week. Paths will include a focus on the interconnection of activism, magic and spirituality, and deep rooted earth connection.

Optional Offerings

Each afternoon will be filled (often over flowing) with one-off optional offerings.  Frequently focused on specific skills or topics of conversation, these offerings are a free-for-all and everyone is empowered to offer something!

Ritual Planning

Also in the afternoon, campers will be encouraged to help plan the camp wide rituals.  A Ritual Facilitation team will be supporting this collaborative work, however we are striving to have our rituals as camper-led as possible!  Yay!

Evening Ritual

Each evening, we will gather as a camp for an evening ritual.  Facilitated by everyone, and with the support of a Ritual Facilitation team, these rituals will guide us through the story of Vasilisa and Baba Yaga as we go through the week of camp.

And FOOD!

We’re already planting seeds that will become your food at Witchcamp!  Yay!  Each day we will have beautiful food cooked by an amazing and talented kitchen team.  We’ll be striving to use as much local organic food as possible, and considering our huge farming community we have high hopes here!  We will also be doing our best to accommodate everyone’s food needs. Please be in touch with us if you have any questions or concerns regarding special dietary requirements.
