There are many wonderful things to do at Camphill, whether you are a resident or if you are coming in from your own home to join the day activity programs.

Land activities

Our Biodynamic farm, gardens, provide opportunities for many different work experiences, from growing vegetables and preparing them for market, to making maple syrup, chopping wood, caring for animals, growing herbs and making herbal teas and other products.

Artistic and Wellness Activities

Speech and drama, music and movement are offered in both locations.

Art and Craft Activities

The woodwork shop and the pottery in Camphill Nottawasaga produce beautiful products that are sold at our craft fairs and also do custom orders. At our Barrie Mosaic art studio, we do ceramic work, art work, mosaics, fibre arts and weaving.

Food Preparation/Life Skills

In our homes and in the café/studio space in Novalis Hall, and in the day program café in Barrie, there are opportunities to learn to cook, bake, and do many household tasks as well. A good preparation for more independent living.

Novalis Hall Opportunities

Novalis Hall is a beautiful building at the Nottawasaga location that is used for our community events and is rented out to the general public. There are opportunities for individuals to learn and practice the skills and the art of hosting events.

Social and Cultural Opportunities

You may also wish to attend the series of craft fairs, social events, dances, plays, musical events, and celebrations that take place during the year.

Out and About Programs

Camphill can help find and facilitate supported employment, volunteer opportunities and recreational programs for our residents and day participants.
