The Earth & Our Ancestors
Aug 27 to Sep 2
Our intention for the 2017 camp is:
“In slow time and deep earth we dance with ancestors near and far as we learn to decolonize and reweave cultures of compassion and justice.”
British Columbia Witchcamp (BCWC) is a community of like-minded people who come together each year for one week to celebrate, learn, teach, and be together as community. We celebrate the earth as sacred. We honour the wild and work together to unify spirit and politics. BCWC is one of many camps following the Reclaiming Tradition of Witchcraft.
“Our teaching, rituals, and spiritual practices are designed to develop personal and community empowerment, that combination of self-confidence, independent thought, intuition and engagement with the world that enables us to live by our principles and stand up for what we believe in.” -Starhawk
BCWC will be celebrating its 30th year in 2017, at Evans Lake, British Columbia.
We acknowledge this land that we come together on is unceded Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Territory. We are in relationship with the non-profit organization that manages the land on which we hold this event, who has a relationship with the Skwxwú7mesh People across Evans Lake and we also know that it is important for us to establish our own relationship and conversation with these Skwxwú7mesh People and are committed to doing so.
