Samhain Camping & Ritual

October 27, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - October 29, 2017 @ 12:00 pm

Join us as we celebrate Samhain!   Enjoy a Samhain ritual in the woods, community stew, impromptu workshops, and fellowship with your community!  This camping trip is very family-style:  We have a group camping site reserved at Moraine View, food and drink are often shared, and camping is close together.


We will have an Ancestors Altar available Friday night-Sunday morning this year.  You may place photos of Ancestors, tokens of remembrance at the alter.  Tea-light candles will be available to light for ancestors.  You may leave offerings for them as well.  Any items remaining at the close of the event will be left as offerings for the Ancestors.


Friday evening meal will be chili (we will have a meat chili and a veggie chili).  We will have time set aside for community members to do personal ritual for their ancestors, and have the warriors maintaining space. This is expected to be around 8pm.


Main ritual will be Saturday early evening, beginning around 5pm.  If you are planning on coming only to the ritual, please join us as early as possible to meet others and foster a sense of community with all participants.  The theme for this year’s Samhain ritual is Savage Community.  Main ritual will include a potluck , please bring a dish to pass, along with a card listing ingredients for those with food allergies.  This year our ritual is a little different- it is open-ended.  We will start a little before sunset, but plan to go on through the night.  Please, dress for the weather (prepare to be in the woods, away from fire for a period of time– lots of layers, warm socks, and boots are suggested).    There will be physical touch & walking through the woods- if you have touch sensitivities or mobility issues, please notify the organizers and we will do our best to make accommodations.


The cost for weekend camping is $25 per person (13 & up), and $5 per child ages 3-12.  Children under 3 are free.  Cost for ritual only is $5 per person.  Cost for the weekend will cover campsite fees, Friday meal, and ritual.
