Now that you mention it, I realize that the Solstice celebrations and the Camps must be a different experience. And yes, I would definitely prefer something that takes place in the wilderness. Where is the summercamp usually held? I've taken the time to read the material on the OBOD website but although there are many testimonies, I didn't find more formal info. From what I understand from the testimonies, the food is provided, there are rituals, shows, workshops, people running around stark naked, costumes, fairs, people sleep in their own tent... how does it work? Do you pay for a subscription and automatically gain access to all the activities?
What I'm looking for, by doing this pilgrimage and spending time with fellow OBODs during a gathering, is to connect with the community, experience things and go through an initiation (are those possible?), get tatooed as a formal affirmation of my engagement and devotion to the spiritual path I have chosen, all this to give some closure to my progression through the gwers (the formal/structured part of the learning process) and find an answer to the "now what?" question I'll be asking myself at the time... so that I can come back to Montreal and know where I'm going and what I want to do in the druidic path and way of life (broaden my practice and learning to other druidic paths, start offering my services as a druidess in the pagan community, officially become a spiritual psychologist, and so on).
So does that sound more "summer camp" or "Glastonbury Summer Solstice" to you?

Well now, that all depends on what you do when you're up there...say no more... ...
