"Working to Recovery" Summer Recovery Camp 2015
About a year ago, my partner Ron Coleman said to me lets have a recovery camp, I said what’s one of those and he said I am not sure but lets invent it.
We talked for many hours, we looked at our recovery houses and took aspects of our learning from these. It should be in a beautiful environment, the day time should have a structure that allowed for time together as a big group, with smaller workshop spaces, we wanted a relaxed but busy atmosphere, which built energy and sense of purpose. We wanted it to have the same feel as our past conferences - a safe place, cutting edge themes, a place where dialogue happens between workers, family members and people with lived experience, but without the formality of a conference. We wanted it to have an international feel, a coming together of different perspectives and a place where people could be creative.
