Vermont Witch Camp organizing and resource campers have begun planning camp 2021. It is (tentatively) scheduled for August 21-28, 2021. Final decision to hold in-person camp will be reached by early summer.
Our theme, RFT and path leaders will be carried into 2021 camp year if appropriate.
Vermont Witchcamp (VWC) 2021 will be a journey through The Wheel of the Year. We will delve into the magical energies of each season to explore our personal cycles, our collective yearnings, and our hopes for the greater world. How do the seasons affect our magic? Our emotions? Can we anticipate the fire of Summer when faced with the ice of Winter? Are we capable of surrender in Autumn and rebirth in the Spring? What myths embody these earthly energies?
What stories do our ancestors tell to mark the seasons?Traveling through the week, we will share inspiration and empowerment as we embrace one another and weave the magic that is Vermont Witchcamp 2020: The Wheel of the Year.
"We are all longing to go home to some place we have never been -- a place half-remembered and half-envisioned we can only catch glimpses of from time to time. Community. Somewhere, there are people to whom we can speak with passion without having the words catch in our throats. Somewhere a circle of hands will open to receive us, eyes will light up as we enter, voices will celebrate with us whenever we come into our own power…Someplace where we can be free."

Once a year, in the fullness of summer, 130 people gather in the Green Mountains of Vermont to create a magical pagan community called Vermont Witch Camp. Our vision, rooted in the magic of the Goddess as the Immanent Life Force, is based on the Reclaiming tradition of the Craft. The work we do together during the week gives us energy to grow and nurture ourselves, our wider world and to birth a vision of a new culture.
Reclaiming is a community of all genders working to unify spirit and politics. We agree as a community to abide by the Reclaiming Principles of Unity.
