The second Pleasures of Beltane camp is scheduled for April 25-29, 2024
at the Mendocino Woodlands in Northern California
Because of the nature of this camp, the registration process has to be a little more involved than simply filling out a short form and sending in a deposit. Everyone's safety and comfort is of primary concern.
There is a rather detailed application form here for you to fill out. The organizing team will review all applications in the order they are received. Once your form has been approved by the organizers, there will be a follow-up in person (via zoom, facetime, etc.) interview so we can answer any questions you may have as well as get to know you a little more. While this may seem a bit over-the-top to some, we believe it's the best way to get a "feel" for each applicant.
Camp Size is small! We are limiting the total population of camp to 50 people, including organizers and teachers. Get your application in as soon as you can!
Due to the size of camp, the sliding scale for attending is $450 to $800. Your payment includes accommodations (shared cabin, very limited tent space), meals from dinner on the night we arrive to breakfast on the day we depart, and all camp activities. We are hoping people can donate as generously as possible to support our scholarship fund and camp diversity!
Full and partial scholarships are no longer available. They have all been filled.
Once you have been accepted as a camper, you will be asked for a $100 non-refundable deposit to hold your space.
This year, we are opening applications early for Black, Indigenous, and other people of color. We openly acknowledge that Reclaiming is a majority-white community and seek to change this, knowing systemic change is never quick or easy. Campers are admitted (and scholarships are distributed) on a first-come, first-served basis. We hope that by inviting Black, Indigenous, and other people of color to apply first, and by co-creating a welcoming environment throughout camp and beyond, Pleasures of Beltane may continue to bring magical pleasure to the widest variety of witches on our vast and varied Earth. We root into the fertile soil of the present day, blooming towards the sun of the anti-racist future.
Early application opens 11/20
General application opens 12/1
