AN INVITATION TO CREATE VWC 2021

LET'S MAKE MAGIC TOGETHER!

If you can answer YES to the 3 questions below…. 
 

  • Have I attended VWC or other Reclaiming camps?
  • Do I wish to give back to the camp community by volunteering my skills and time?
  • Can I make it a priority to participate in monthly, consensus-based ZOOM meetings, and plan to attend camp in Vermont, August 21-28, 2021? ** Note: While we’re very hopeful that we can return to an “in person / physical” camp experience in August 2021 this will depend on whether it is safe to do so.. . . .Then join the VWC 2021 organizing team! Confirm your desire to join as soon as possible since openings are limited. The deadline to join is November 30 when the 2021 camp planning cycle kicks-off.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU NEED TO KNOW?

It's especially great WHEN:

-     The organizing team and camp are enriched through diversity. VWC strives to uplift and center BIPOC voices.

-     The organizing team consists of 7 to 13 members facilitating consensus.

-     Organizing campers already know, or can quickly learn, easy to       
      use internet based tools  including EMAIL, ZOOM & LOOMIO.

-     Organizing campers can commit to organizing for 3 consecutive       
       years.

Organizing is a lot of work, but it is also rewarding and necessary for the continuation of Vermont Witch Camp. Looking forward to a great 2021 organizing cycle.

Blessings, the 2020 organizing and resource campers.

We are still accepting your kind donations for VWC 2021 scholarships and to offset this year's administrative costs

Welcome Home

"We are all longing to go home to some place we have never been -- a place half-remembered and half-envisioned we can only catch glimpses of from time to time. Community. Somewhere, there are people to whom we can speak with passion without having the words catch in our throats. Somewhere a circle of hands will open to receive us, eyes will light up as we enter, voices will celebrate with us whenever we come into our own power…Someplace where we can be free."

img_3159Once a year, in the fullness of summer, 130 people of all genders and all ages gather in the Green Mountains of Vermont to create a magical pagan community called Vermont Witch Camp. Our vision, rooted in the magic of the Goddess as the Immanent Life Force, is based on the Reclaiming tradition of the Craft. The work we do together during the week gives us energy to grow and nurture ourselves, our wider world and to birth a vision of a new culture.

Reclaiming is a community of all genders working to unify spirit and politics. We agree as a community to abide by the Reclaiming Principles of Unity and the Wiccan Rede.

 More general information about Vermont Witchcamp:

We gather together in the Reclaiming tradition of witchcraft, rooted in the magic and religion of the sacred mysteries, manifesting a union of spirit and activism. Throughout the week we learn and enrich our magical skills through a daily path experience, affinity groups, optional workshops, and community rituals. This is a magical intensive offering an opportunity to deepen personal connection to the Sacred Realms. We share this time opening, empowering, and transforming: ourselves,our community, the world. Witchcamp can be intense, joyful, provocative, and life altering. The intensive is sequestered for the entire 7 days. Please plan to attend the entire week.

Reclaiming Core Values are caring for the environment, self-determination for all human beings, embracing diversity, supporting the values of peace, community and family, and participating in efforts to support social justice. We agree to abide by the Reclaiming Principles of Unity and the Wiccan Rede (reclaiming.org).
