We are drawn to the wilderness, our souls tracing a path back to nature, to find solitude, quiet, and hold communion so they may be restored.
Enter the Wild this August and let the sacred space and community of Oak Dragon Camps hold you on a rewilding journey through the heart, mind, body, and soul.
Explore your wild heart and join in play, song, and laughter. There will be workshops and space for drumming, sacred singing, and chanting to help you rediscover the thrill of wild abandon. Use the sacred and wild space to tune in to your mind, and take time to appreciate meditation, shamanic journeying, and grounding practices.
Feel the physicality of your body. Wild yourself and your senses, embracing foraging and other survival skills, within the embrace and support of community. Feed your wild soul and reconnect with nature, with our ancestors who lived side by side with the flora and fauna of Earth.
There will be workshops and ceremony, time for solitude, walking on and working with the land, and time spent in community. Wonderful, wild magic awaits!

Feedback from the Summer Camp 2016
Arrival after long journey was like entering a calm and restful oasis - just to be welcomed before the camping field (where I would have raced around unloading, putting up tent etc.) by a wise man who sat me down and I took breath and gently chose my Druid card animal to accompany my next ten days. I had assumed that I would pick my name out of a hat and be told where to camp as in the last few camps, but as I had arrived later than most I found myself directed to a circle where my usual friends were elsewhere, which I accepted and enjoyed, but if I had known that by arriving earlier I could have chosen my circle I would have preferred that.  All bookings, directions etc. were excellent, as was our familiar campsite - the hot showers, the fire pits, the loos - thank you to Ian and all the Crew!!!! I absolutely loved the themes and programme of this camp, a great sense of quietude and flow, the fact that all the workshops enabled me to bring my intuitive nature to come through - from the dowsing teachings - sacred space, and our stones, the morning labyrinthine dances with the new wisdom gained from our teachings, and the dream workshops, , the drumming and yoga, and not to forget the inspiration of speaking and listening during Pow wow, a gift.  It really was all a reminder to me to listen to my souls song. For me personally, I loved the space we were given in the Wellbeing Dome - such a beautiful environment to enjoy doing our healing work.  Both Trisha, Rachel and I all gained a real unity in working together, we had times of great elation!!  so the energy was there for us all - thank you, thank you, such a gift.  Please could we have a Wellbeing Dome next year? It was lovely to have the space between workshops, to cook and eat around the fire, talk to friends, the laughter, the joy at the evening music around the central fire - all of us gathering - called by the guitar - family….  And never to forget the wonderful Ronald Hutton and Anna and the amazing talent of our young ‘Actors” to give us that sense of wonder and amazement as they performed to us all.  Then the delightful Hare Night for Gilli - her delight and joy at the surprise - the outrageous ‘strippers’, gifts and flowers given from us all with such love for her and Ian’s future hand fasting. A very big thank you to all of you with the imagination, enthusiasm and vision for a wonderful ten days, where I am so lucky to step away from my usual life and enter the world of love and magic.   all blessings,
