Creating authentic experiences for our children in nature

The basic principle of our camps is essentially that of creating experiences for our children where they can most wholly and truly be themselves.

Every child is precious and has something important to bring to the world, regardless of their apparent challenges.

There are no limits to our creative and social possibilities and potentials

Michael Duveen

26 November 2023

We wanted to pay tribute to Michael Duveen, who sadly passed away 26th November 2023. He and his wife Jayne have been very generous, supportive, and kind, welcoming us to their working farm every year for the last six years. They have long supported biodynamic agriculture and the Christian Community, and it was so lovely for them to support our camp impulse too in such an amazing way. It was always a pleasure to see Michael around the farm during camp, and he enjoyed joining us for circle time when the occasion allowed him too. We will greatly miss him and Jayne at Colin Godman’s farm in 2024, and appreciate Isabel and Paul allowing us to continue there this year. We will see how the future unfolds beyond that.

Camp Activities

Mosaics, kite-making, leatherwork, candles, steam-cars, beadwork, and a sweat-lodge among others. There is no limit to the creative possibilities. Every year we are amazed at the capacity of our helpers and children to come up with new creative ideas in all that they do – and with such community spirit!

I would like to thank you for all what you have done during these 10 days. The boys are transformed and they can’t stop talking about the camp!! Being so young I think they didn’t just cope and utterly enjoyed the whole experience. The atmosphere and energy in the camp that you created is incredible. Thank you for inspiring them , for bringing  such an amazing experience to their lives. It was very special! I am extremely grateful to you and you wonderful team!

Thank you so much for such an amazing experience! God bless you all! The boys came back so happy and already asking to join the camp next summer!! What a delight!

Mum 02

I am so grateful that I can’t find the right words! We have had quite a difficult year… I was really hoping for an experience like this for them, it really made a difference! Again, thanks for your amazing work! What an amazing group of humans you all are!

Mum 03

Thank you so, so much from the very bottom of my heart for doing all that you do, taking such good care of the children and for giving L such an awesome, inspired experience.

Mum 04

Firstly I just want to say a HUGE thank you. I really appreciated all of the support F received to help him stay at camp. And also B just had the BEST time, she has had nothing but good things to say which is quite unlike her.

Mum 05

I just wanted to say thank you for the camp and for giving the children such a lovely time. S had a good experience overall and little bits come out here and there and I am getting a bigger picture now, He say’s he would like to go another time so that is encouraging! Thank you for helping with the anxiety of sending him off on his own for the first time, (I think he found it much easier than me) and after talking to a few parents, it sounds like I wasn’t the only one who struggled with it. Having regular updates really helped, thank you for that.
