Welcome to White Horse Camps
White Horse Camps offer you the opportunity to practice your druidry on the land within a supportive Druid community founded in the teachings of OBOD.
We hold four camps a year to celebrate the fire festivals of Imbolc, Beltane, Lughnasadh and Samhain. Each camp is a unique event that weaves together ceremony, creativity, workshops, fun and laughter to provide a themed magical journey through the energy of the particular season. Above all, we explore our connection to the land and its spirits, and it is for this love of the land that we bear the name of the White Horse that, for our spiritual and ancestral forebears was the sacred symbol of the land itself.
Our physical bodies are housed in yurts kept warm with wood burners. (Some of these videos were made indoors at Wildways.) Here we sleep and hold our workshops and daily community meetings. In these spaces we also hold eisteddfods where the bards may entertain us with music and song, story and poetry. There is a kitchen, kids space, and Well-being – a tranquil space for healing and relaxation. We even have a shower-sauna caravan with a wood-fired hot water system.
Our close connection to OBOD means we can offer initiation into the OBOD grades on request. (You must be a member of the order first.) We also offer other initiations such as coming-of-age, handfastings and coming into eldership. At some camps there will be the chance to meet in the Groves of the three grades within OBOD: Bardic, Ovate and Druid.
White Horse Camps are open to members of the Order of Bards, Ovates & Druids, their friends, and family. Like-minded people with an interest in druidry are also welcome to attend, but spaces are limited per event. Our camps are not freely open to the general public to maintain a held sacred space that allows us to work freely within the teachings of OBOD.
We welcome people of all nationalities, all genders, ages and sexualities.
