Camphill communities provide opportunities for children, young people and adults with intellectual disabilities and other special needs to live, learn and work together with others in an atmosphere of mutual respect and equality. From its beginnings near Aberdeen in Scotland, Camphill has grown to become a truly international Movement with communities in Europe, North America, southern Africa and India.
Camphill welcomes people of all beliefs who respect our ethos. In addition to caring for each other, those who make their lives in Camphill care for the land and the environment by following organic and biodynamic principles in their gardens and on their farms, doing recycling and using environmentally-friendly products and services whenever possible.
