Sun, summer, theory! Several parallel workshops will be offered twice a day at relaxed times; during the longer break there will be time to use in various ways: partying, lounging around, playing, sleeping and meeting lots of new people.
The camp is worthwhile firstly for people who want to discuss current political developments in depth, e.g.: War in Ukraine, feminist foreign policy, sanctions policy, right-wing government in Italy, inflation - impoverishment - financial crisis.
Second, the camp is worthwhile for those who want to get an introduction to radical left theory: e.g. critique of capitalism, freedom as a fundamental right, critique of education, humanities, natural sciences, critique of ideology, climate politics.
Third, there are a number of other topics that you might have always been interested in: e.g., classism, German nationalism in its songs, memory culture and nationalism in Germany, Bitcoin.
Fourth, some workshops will also be offered in English every time and you will have the opportunity to discuss some topics with people from the UK. So if you know people who don't know German well or not at all, but can manage English reasonably well, then promote the camp there.
Please check our website regularly, we will announce new workshops here.
The camp takes place near Hamburg and is easily reached by public transport. The fun costs 15-25€ per night, i.e. according to self-assessment of one's own financial possibilities. Camp-Reader as well as daily full board are included. You can spend the night in bed, in a tent or in your own car/camper/van. The latter would be very welcome, as the remaining overnight places are limited; please write this down when registering. At the camp there will be organised self-catering: everyone sometimes will help with cooking, washing up, cleaning- but food will be provided daily (always vegetarian and vegan as well). If you are thinking about not coming because of the amount of the participation fee, please contact us.
There are meeting rooms, WIFI, table tennis, pool table, sauna and outside space for ball games. The facility is conditionally barrier-free (roughly: the most important rooms are wheelchair accessible, but some ramps are a bit steep), one room is completely barrier-free with its own bathroom. The kitchen is on ground floor, and there are meeting rooms on ground floor. That means: We do our best to minimise the remaining barriers on site - if you arrive in a wheelchair or have other mobility restrictions, feel free to contact us so we can discuss the details in advance. We will try to accommodate other needs as well, as far as we can. If you would like to come with children, please contact us as well. We will try to provide childcare at least parallel to part of the workshops.
For the cooking team it would be important if you let us know about allergies or intolerances when you register. In case of severe allergies, where even traces in the food are crucial, it may not be possible for the cooking team to provide for you. There is additionally a separate, small but well-equipped kitchen for cases of (partial) self-catering. We cannot cater to special trend diets, etc. The warm dinner is vegan and varied. Dogs are allowed, but cost 50€ per dog for the whole stay (according to the price list of the house). Dogs must be leashed on the camp grounds.
In about two weeks the announcements of the workshops with teasers will be published here. Check back often from now on, they will be updated continuously.
