Welcome to the home of Wild Ginger WitchCamp!
Wild Ginger is in Ontario, Canada. It is an annual 5-day camp based in the Reclaiming Tradition of Witchcraft. It is a multi-gendered and multi-generational community of people interested in earth-based spirituality, social justice, environmental justice, magic, and fun.
June 12 – 16, 2019 will be our 22nd camp and we can’t wait to see you!
The 2019 camp is currently full and is only accepting wait-list people at this time.
The theme for the 22nd camp is
The Pentacle of Birth:
Becoming the World We Seek
This year Wild Ginger has chosen to work with the symbol of the Pentacle. For many of us the Pentacle is a symbol of Witchcraft in general and many of us define ourselves as witches, but Pentacle work goes deeper than that.
Pentacle work is one of the foundations of our tradition, Iron Pentacle and the Pentacle of Pearl being two of the four Reclaiming Core Classes. It is sort of expected that people who work in our tradition are at least familiar with them both.
However, because Reclaiming is the open-ended tradition that it is, over the years many Pentacles have sprung up. After all, the Pentacle reflects our human 5-pointed skeletal structure (head, two strong legs, two creative arms).
Reclaiming and Feri (part of our Reclaiming foundations) practitioners everywhere have developed their own pentacles. Some examples include The ‘Amethyst Pentacle’ of Storm Fairy Wolf, the ‘Warrior Pentacle’ of T. Thorn Coyle, the ‘Pentacle of the Great Turning’ that arose out of Free Cascadia Camp, and many, many others. You may have developed a personal Pentacle as part of your own spiritual practice.
The Pentacle we developed for this year’s camp came out of our desire to Birth ourselves anew; as individuals, as a community, as a culture. We looked at the aspects of bringing something, anything
We settled on Contemplation, Conception, Quickening (or gestation), Transition, Birth & Contemplation
These are the points of our Star. You will find them reflected in the ritual Arc and in Path work during Wild Ginger 2019.
We ask you to Contemplate …
What do YOU bring to Birth?
