The Camp

Please note applications have now closed for the 2020 camp.

The below information will give you some background into what can be expected on the 2020 camp. 

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? 

29th May – 31st May 2020

The cost

The cost for the 3 days and 2 nights is £350.

This includes:

  • 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 (Kimberley Quinlan)

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 lives in the UK and Ireland). There will be plenty of opportunity for conversations with like-minded others, activities to challenge yourself and even one that may increase anxiety. 

Please note

The camp is not therapy or a replacement for therapy. A therapist will be present, however the purpose of the camp is to provide support, connection and time in nature. To understand what the camp entails more, listen to the podcast we did with the 2018 campers here.
