The intention of the camps

To build understanding, experience and expression of paganism in the local community, for beginners as well as those more experienced.  We will honour, respect and celebrate the Earth, ourselves and the spirit of life which we call the Goddess. We will do this through healing, festivity, dancing, singing, creativity, craft working, path working, fun, learning and sharing.

Community camp

We have the usual wonderful stand-alone spiritual workshops, crafts, fun and celebration for all. Extra night’s camping on Sunday 12th August available as an optional extra.

Spiritual development camp

The Spiritual Development Camp began at Goddess Camp 2011 and is open to anyone fourteen years old and upwards (under eighteens should be accompanied by an adult.)

This camp was created to provide adults and older teenagers with a space to develop their spiritual practices in a quiet, natural environment. There will be workshops to help you explore your beliefs and the opportunity to try new ways of working. Alternatively you can simply take advantage of the peaceful atmosphere to relax, explore the beautiful woodland in Bestwood Country Park and practise as you like.

Block Around the Clock: Mass camp and action

“If you like it then you shouldn’t put a rig on it.” – Beyoncé

This summer we’re stepping up the disruption with a BLOCK AROUND THE CLOCK, as part of our mass action camp against fracking. Come and join us as we return to Preston New Road near Blackpool to stop Cuadrilla’s dastardly fracking plans once again.

Weds 27 June to Sunday 1 July
Get the dates in your diary, more details to follow soon!

Time and again, local communities have shown the shale gas industry it has no social license to frack in the UK. But the Conservatives are continuing their plan to force this dirty drilling on communities. With a long winter behind us and fracking proposed to start soon at Preston New Road, it is now more important than ever to show the locals of Lancashire that we stand with them.

This Reclaim the Power mass action and camp is part of the United Resistance, a bold 3 months of action organised by Lancashire locals. They are calling on anti-frackers from across the country to join them and take action, with at least one action per week planned between April and June. For more information check: https://www.facebook.com/UnitedResistanceUK/

If you’re wondering why you should care about fracking, why Preston New Road is a key frontline in the resistance against dirty fossil energy, and why direct action is necessary – watch this brand new documentary http://player.lush.com/tv/power-trip-film-zoe-broughton-and-paul-oconnor

Reclaim the Power is a UK-based direct action network fighting for social, environmental and economic justice. We aim to build a broad-based movement, working in solidarity with frontline communities to effectively confront environmentally destructive industries and the social and economic forces driving climate change.
