OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES:

  • Folk culture is organic and non-authoritative.

  • There is tradition and there is the ever-present reality of change. We embrace both.

  • We honour tradition and the wisdom passed on to us through the generations that preceded us,

  • and we honour the creative spirit that lives in each and every one of us, here and now.

  • We celebrate diversity.

  • We strive to leave this earth a better place for having us.

  • We embrace that which is beautiful and lasting, and has been made with care and devotion.

  • We share. Songs, stories, food, hopes and dreams, concerns... We listen to learn.

  • It is important that for this deep learning and sharing to take place that we all participate in making each safe space.

  • We do not tolerate harassment of any kind.

SPECIFICALLY AT CAMP:

  • be open minded! share openly, and receive openly

  • be present: use your mobile device only when necessary and away from the activities (please do not give them to your children to play video games)

  • be responsible: don't abuse any substances; smoke only in designated area

  • be conscious of other people's need for space: respect sleeping space by keeping it a quiet calm place

  • be waste free: bring only reusable (non-disposable) , natural (nontoxic) items to camp
