The 2018 camp is now completed and was a success. We will be running more camps next year. To be aware of 2019 dates and more sign up to our (non-invasive email list) here: apply >
I have left the original (2018) text from this page below to give you some background into what can be expected on one of our camps.
What will happen at The OCD Camp (UK)?
The camp’s primary mission is to allow people with OCD to meet others with OCD, challenge themselves through fun activities and connect with nature away from the distractions of everyday life.
The camp will include multiple fun activities, as well as survival based activities, time to connect, share stories and support fellow campers, and develop mental well-being practices.
Where is it?
The campgrounds are based just South West of London in the county of Surrey. The camp is easily accessible via motorway, and pretty accessible by train.
When is it?
18th – 20th May 2018
The cost for the 3 days and 2 nights is £260.
- Camping for the 2 nights
- All food and drinks
- Multiple activities (skill, team building and even one to get the heart racing)
- Trained camping staff
- One trained therapist (Pete Weiss)
What would I need to bring?
The camp has been set up so that you will only need to bring the basic essentials such as sleeping bag, comfortable clothes etc. Full kit list will be shared nearer the time.
Is it for me?
The OCD Camp is for everyone who has OCD (18 years and over, and live in the UK, Ireland and mainland Europe). There will be plenty of opportunity for conversations with like-minded others, activities to challenge yourself and even one that may increase anxiety. So if you think this is for you, then please feel free to submit an application.
