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.

    • “I have been very lucky to see the new workshops and houses become a reality. It has been talked about for a long time and it is great to see it happen. There has been quite a bit of upheaval along the way and the residents have coped with it brilliantly. However it has all been worthwhile and you just have to pop into Sycamore or Garden House to see that the residents think so too.” (Irene McLaren, Amber House Leader)
