These are the workshop descriptions for Lammas Camp that we have from some of the workshop leaders. I've collected them here as a handy reference so that you can choose which ones you might like to go to, or you might decide to just sit, relax and enjoy the peace of not having to do anything at all.
Power Animals 1 ~ Cherill Royce-Dexter
A talk about the importance of Animal Spirits, followed by a journey to meet and greet your current Animal Spirit guide.
Dowsing ~ Simon Royce-Dexter

If you have your own dowsing Crystal or a necklace, feel free to bring them along. We have lots of dowsing rods available to use.
Drumming ~ Karl Stirland
Creative Writing (bring paper & pen)~Dawn Romero
I was thinking of using the theme of the Lammas camp itself as a creative focus for the writing as it is a feast for the senses and could lead to some great writing

Only a couple of weeks now until Lammas Camp. I remember last year sitting outside my stall in the sunshine making up lots of anklets. Folk were coming by and asking if I had any, which I hadn't, but luckily I had taken along beads, charms and tools and so they chose what they wanted and then came by later to collect their anklets. I was totally unprepared last year for anklets, this year I had made some up ready but then them took them into shop, so I will have to make some more up for camp lol. Hope people still want anklets. Pop by my stall if your at camp and see if there's anything you like or that I can make up for you while you're there.
These one are a 2 in 1 style anklet/bracelet combo. Wrap either twice round your ankle or three times around your wrist. Plenty of movement given with the dangley stars and beads.
Time spent in a field with marvellous views of the Derbyshire countryside with a like minded bunch of folk is never wasted. When you’ve had enough of sitting around relaxing soaking up the atmosphere and having a brew or two (or whatever’s your tipple), there are workshops to learn something new or swap ideas in, crafts to create and drums to beat.
The central sacred fire is kept going throughout the weekend and is a good place to sit around, drum and chat or dance around as the night gets cooler. It has the ashes of many other sacred fires, from far away and this country, sprinkled into it to lend their energies to our camp, as our fires ashes will be collected by those who like to to lend the energies of this camp to their own fires.
The ‘Beating of the Bounds’ starts off Lammas Camp Thursday evening, when we go round the field beating our drums and clearing the space ready for the weekend, please join in and if you don’t have a drum clap your hands or just walk with us to where the fire is to be lit with an Opening Fire Ceremony.
Friday evening let your hair down and show your moves off in the dance temple, well marquee ;0) There’s likely to be entertainment before hand as well to get you in the mood. And of course you can dance round the fire other nights if the drummers get a good beat going ;0), we do have an 11 o'clock drum curfew to keep the neighbours happy though.
Saturday is the Lammas Camp Ritual, if this is your first Pagan camp don’t worry we don’t get naked or anything ;0)

We've had quite a few lovely Handfastings at Lammas Camp (I've not got photos of all of them but here's a few) and there is to one this year as well, on Friday, which I'm sure will be wonderful :0)
For useful stuff like the ticket form and more details about the campsite click on the Lammas Camp tab in the menu above. This is a facebook link to our event page so that you can see what’s going on there as well.
If you'd rather relax than spend time cooking and washing up take a look at the food menu which is next to the ticket forms, very good prices, they cater for vegetarians and vegans too, and have snacks as well as main meals, ice cream, hot chocolate …
Remember to have a browse round the stalls and treat yourself something different and individual to the normal stuff :0) Have a look in my shop on here as well, if you see something interesting let me know and I can bring it with me.
The camp site it’s self has archaeological interest with barrows dating back 4000 years – take a look here.
In the mean time here's some more photos of past years camps to remind me/us of lovely times shared in the Lammas field, come and join us and make some memories :0)
Well I’d better get wire wrangling and make some pretties for Lammas Camp. Hope to see you there :0)
