Enrol Camp: an end-of-summer retreat co-hosted and co-created by the participants.

An invitation

Inviting past and present Enrol Yourself participants (plus loved ones) for a weekend of creativity, celebration and community! After this period of upheaval, we're looking forward to coming together in person - to restore, reconnect and have fun in the beautiful Devon countryside.

 

Enrol Camp is an opportunity to come back together - whether you're meeting people in your group in person for the first time, reconnecting with your old peer group, or making new connections.

Take stock, celebrate and mark the change of seasons with good vibes, good food, good company - and a totally unique line up of workshops and activities.

It works like this:

  1. We provide the space and the 'container'

  2. You propose any session/s you'd like to host

  3. We put together a line up of activities, making sure there's something for every mood

  4. Magic happens!

 

If you don't want to host a session that's fine too! There are loads of other ways to contribute, like bringing a game, an instrument or just yourself.

 

Here's a snapshot from 2018:

What to expect

Beautiful setting

A beautiful Devon countryside setting at Selgars Mill, a 'centre for the democratic economy'. 

Workshops

Some creative, some reflective, some purposeful, some loud, some quiet. Something for all!

 

Time to chill

We encourage all naps, walks, time outs, and alone time to just sit and think.

 

Games

Previously we've played a lot of lemon jousting. Please bring your favourite games with you. 

Campfires

Campfires, marshmallows and music are all essential. Bring campfire songs and scary stories.

 

Great food

We'll be serving up delicious vegetarian food, with lots of contributions from you as well. 

Sign up

Let us know if you want to come, what your preferences are, what your contributions might be - and share your ideas for the camp.

 

"The retreat gave me valuable space away from the everyday, amongst an inspiring community. It was more than just a fun weekend: I'm returning with a fresh sense of purpose and playfulness."

Co-hosting:

  • Enrol Camp follows all the same principles as the Learning Marathon. For that reason all the workshops, sessions and activities are designed and hosted by the camp participants.

  • As part of the sign up form we ask you to tell us if you'd like to host. Nearer to the time we'll weave all the offers together into a line-up with choices for each time slot, so you can pick the sessions that appeal most to you.

  • This will be an incredibly supportive group of open minded participants, and possibly the best sandbox you'll find for trying something out, testing something you've never done before - or hosting an old favourite.

  • Previous line ups included an 'intergalactic conference', a ritualistic workshop to collaboratively create the 'September Pole' which we assembled and burnt, a letter writing session, a mindful walk, a dancing hour and more. We welcome whatever you want to offer!
