The Camphill movement
Camphill Blair Drummond, founded over 40 years ago by the Austrian, Anke Weihs, is part of the international Camphill movement for social renewal through community living.
In over 100 Camphill schools, training centres and villages worldwide, children, adolescents and adults in need of special care live and work together.
Based on the work of Rudolph Steiner, life at Camphill centres is shared on an extended family basis, building communities that uphold each individual’s sense of integrity, dignity and worth. Camphill Blair Drummond is a member of Camphill Scotland and of the Association of Camphill Communities.
Cultural & Community Life
Life at Camphill Blair Drummond is led by the seasons and Christian festivals that are celebrated throughout the year.
Shared values and encouragement to contribute as much as possible to the life of the community brings people together for a common purpose and makes every individual feel valued.
Contributions to community life at Camphill Blair Drummond are made in many different ways. Tasks are shared by everyone and matched to individual abilities. Daily work activities, such as baking bread, tending the gardens and estate grounds, are part of the normal pattern of life.
Special events and festivals are highlights of the Camphill Blair Drummond calendar as they are planned, celebrated and enjoyed with relatives and friends as a whole community.
