Hendrik and Natasja ,who started the organisation of this camp, first got in contact with the Order of Bards Ovates and Druids while they were living in The Netherlands. Hendrik is a member in the Bardic grade and Natasja is studying in the Ovate grade. In 2012 they moved to Sweden and had a hard time finding other Obodies living there. With the help of the OBOD office in England other members were found and a small network is forming in Scandinavia.
In the summer of 2017 Philip Carr- Gomm, OBOD's Chosen Chief, and Stephanie Carr- Gomm, Scribe of the order, visited Sweden to host a lovely workshopweekend in the Tiveden national park. After their visit plans to have an "international" druid camp in Sweden really began to take form.
Inspired by the Dryade International Druid camps in The Netherlands, and with the help of the Dryade organisation crew a druid camp in Sweden is now becoming reality. Many thanks to everyone who is helping to bring this camp into existence. We hope that this camp will give the participants the possibility to make new friends, even across borders, and that networks may form and flourish. May all enjoy the workshops, ceremonies, talks and especially the Midsummer Magic.
