Event description

Description

FreeSpirit Community Camp is for anyone who shares an interest or passion in the values and gifts of transformative and ecologically aware community living...

Nestled within the beautiful surrounds of the Bison Farm & the rolling hills of the Wiltshire countryside, you'll have every opportunity to immerse yourself deeply into the experience of living, working, resting, eating and playing together as community, and rediscover the innate wisdom, support and healing that comes from this experience.

Both Community and time spent in Nature are fundamental in living a happy, healthy and sustainable lifestyle. It brings a wealth of opportunity for connection and grow and our intention is in co-creating the camp within an organic and evolutionary process. Everyone is invited to come as they are and share in making the camp a very special and vibrant experience.

Time for rest & reflection...

Discover new depths in what you do and how you see the world...

Experience the healing grace of time spent living in nature...

Learn new tools for healthy & sustainable living...

Explore new forms of creative expression...

Let yourself relax and open up...

One of the best parts of the camp is our open programme which invites anyone who attends to offer and share their gifts to the community, which always culminates in an inspiring blend of creative, playful, informative and healing workshops. The camp also encourages creative independence for children, as a safe space to make friends, explore and play, whilst offering adventurous and imaginative activities.

Open to all, families, couples, friends and individuals… we invite you to come and share in creating the magic of FreeSpirit!!


In their words...

"In my experience when you recognise magnificence in others it gives you the opportunity to see it in yourself and vice versa I have seen both in the last few days and it takes my breath ”

Practicalities:
Bush Farm Bison Centre is located in West Knoyle, Wiltshire just North of Shaftesbury near the A303, Postcode BA12 6AE.

Campsite facilities include drinking taps, hot water hand basins, dishwashing sinks, flushing toilets & hot showers.

Camper-vans & caravans are welcome.

Parents need to be responsible for their children at all times.

Sadly dogs are not allowed due to animals being kept on the farm.

You need to provide your own camping equipment and food for breakfasts & lunches.

We are providing the essential foods for all our communal organic vegetarian evening meals however we ask that everyone brings along luxury items to share amongst the community for example breads, chutneys, homegrown products, drinks, crisps, nuts, jams and of course lots of cakes and biscuits.

Refreshments & light meals are also available from the bison farm café.

If you would like to offer a workshop or activity there is always space for impromptu happenings and can be programmed in during the camp.

We will send more info after booking, with a helpful list of things you may need for yourself to make your experience as relaxing as possible.

Most importantly remember to bring a sense of adventure, your smiles and lots of warm clothes, as the evenings there can be a little chilly.

We wish for this event to be 100% inclusive and wouldn’t want anyone to miss it for money reasons. Although there is a set price, we also offer the option of paying less if the price is truly out of your range. Please drop us an email brief explaining your circumstances and we will see what we can work out. We offer this in trust, that folks will honour the spirit in which it is offered.
