FIND YOUR LIFE PATH

When you live in Camphill you learn to see past disability to human potential and become more in touch with your own.

Our volunteers often join us after graduation, their direction still unclear. Or they have entered the working world but have not found satisfaction. Some come for a gap year they planned for all along.

In as little as a year, Camphill volunteers are transformed by new clarity, purpose, and self-assurance.

With the guidance of experienced mentors, you will progress along your path of self-development, challenging yourself to push beyond your limits and discover all that lives in you.

“We think we are here to help people with special needs, but you know, for the most part, it’s always the other way around. The longer you are in Camphill, the more you begin to realize it’s a two-way street.”
~ Mandla Qwabe

By embracing the challenges and joys of Camphill life, you will not only support but truly share in the daily lives of people with disabilities. As you find your place in a diverse intentional community, caring for the land and learning artisan trades such as woodworking, weaving, and baking, you will develop bonds that extend beyond your year of service.

“Being immersed in community gave me the chance to build so many beautiful relationships, many of which will last for the rest of my life. I learned how to communicate with other people – how to recognize the needs of others as well as my own.”

NEW SKILLS
& TRADES

Steward the Land and Grow Food

Immerse yourself in biodynamics on a well-established farm, supported by a thriving community. We have opportunities for everyone – beginner or expert – to grow your skills and commitment to regenerative agriculture. You’ll be mentored by experienced farmers and gardeners and can become a mentor yourself.

Create Beauty

Explore your creativity and connection to the arts in Camphill. Opportunities abound: felting, painting, acting, singing, bookbinding, and so much more. With hands-on practice under the guidance of mentors, you dive right in, and by the end of your year, you’ll be leading others in learning.

Care for People

In Camphill, you learn what it takes to build inclusive community. You will see when to offer support and when to step aside to create space for growth. We take a holistic approach to caring for each other. Our volunteers tell us time and again that one thing they learn in Camphill – how to really see other people and themselves – is something they carry for the rest of their lives.

We know that supporting education supports our communities and all the people who call them home, so we make it a priority.
