Welcome to BC Witchcamp
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
The wheel turns again, and our attention moves to this year’s magical gathering. At long last we may meet again. Whether this is your first time, or your 35th, we look forward to making magic with you on the shores of Shawnigan Lake. Priority registration is now open for any campers who identify as/with an equity-deserving group. This is a self-identified process and on the honour system. We ask campers to reflect on their access needs and register for camp accordingly. Please use this link to register https://bcwitchcamp.ca/bc-witch-camp-2023-registration-form/
We acknowledge that this land we will come together on is the territory of the Hul’qumi’num People, recognizing especially the Quw’utsun and Malexal Nations. We are immeasurably grateful for their millenia-long stewardship of this land.
The BCWC community is keenly aware that we gather and make magic on stolen lands, and that our privilege in being able to do so is entwined with a history of theft and attempted genocide that has not been made right—not even close. We are committed to learning, listening, taking responsibility, and being allies in service to justice, accountability, healing, and all other facets of decolonization.
