The OCD Camp springs from a belief that nature, and meeting others with OCD can be a valuable part of recovery, and mental well-being. The idea for the first UK OCD camp was cemented when Stuart interviewed therapist Pete Weiss on The OCD Stories podcast. Pete was part of the BBC documentary “Extreme OCD Camp” which aired in 2013. During the interview Pete offered to help Stuart if he ever decided to run a UK camp. Nearly three years on, Pete was true to his word. As they say, the rest is history. Below is a podcast where I interviewed the campers who took part in the 2018 camp with Pete.

Camp history:

2018 – The UK’s first OCD camp with therapist Pete Weiss, LMHC

2019 – with therapist Ashley Annestedt, LCSW

2020 – with therapist Kimberley Quinlan, LMFT

The OCD Stories is solely focused on recovery. Camping, being in nature and being around others who want to improve is at the heart of this camp, and this camp is at the heart of The OCD Stories mission.
