What is Creative Camp?

Creative Camp is for everyone with the ambition to create, learn and grow. If you are feeling stuck in your creation, uninspired or feel like you lack support and community. We rent a villa in a beautiful location and bring creators together. Everyone with the ambition to create is welcome, regardless of creative area. Bring a creative project to work on during the week and enjoy a good time with nice people while progressing on your project. We structure the week for everyone to set their own goals and for a bit of motivation from social accountability. Our cook will make home-cooked meals and we'll go on fun excursions in the surrounding area.

Creative Projects

Work on whatever creative project you feel like, alone or in collaboration with others. Here are a few examples of what campers have worked on.

And many more...

Schedule and Activities

Most of the time is spent working independently as you wish on your own projects. The week is structured with a planning and sharing session at the beginning where we do a creative self evaluation and set goals for ourselves. Two excursions will be planned during the week but most of the knowledge sharing will be done by everyone attending based on what knowledge, ideas and skills we have.

  • Planned Sessions I will be running four sessions during the week. At the beginning of the week a self reflection session for your creative vision tied to goal setting. Then during the week we will do a voluntary feedback session and a "Facing your creative devils" session. At the end of the week we will wrap up with a show-and-tell.

  • Skill Sharing These are sessions run on a voluntary basis by campers within an area they have knowledge. This is up to you, what do you want to share? Examples from previous camps include macramé workshop, art class, yoga, meditation, video for social media, and many more.

  • Food Food will be cooked for everyone two times a day, a proper dinner and a simple lunch. Breakfast is also included but is self-serve.

  • Excursions Depending on interest and weather we will go out on excursions, examples from previous camps include wine tasting, sightseeing or hiking.

  • Independent creation The rest of the time is spent working on your creative project and maybe take a break every once in a while to hang out by the pool.

This is an example of the schedule for a previous creative camp. The exact schedule will depend on what sharing sessions campers want to run and which excursions the group find the most interesting.

Who is this for?

  • You are curious and driven to explore ideas and want to spend your time creating.

  • You enjoy creation, either professionally or as a hobby.

  • You want to support others and share your knowledge.

  • You want to interact and get to know other people.

Who is this not for?

  • You are ONLY here to chill by the pool and have a vacation.

  • You are not open to different personalities and cultures.

  • You see this as a way to market your business.

  • You want to be served and cleaned after.

- Help support with kitchen duties and keeping common areas clean.

Workspace

The living space will also be used as work space. I will try to divide the work space based on your needs. The living room and kitchen area will be for non-quiet work and the dedicated work room will be for silent work. Bring any equipment you may need, only chairs and tables are provided.

Creative Material

You will have to bring whatever tools and material you need for your projects on your own. Let me know if you have any special needs that we might be able to help out with.

Cancellations

All payments are non-refundable, so make sure you can make it before paying. If you cancel after you have paid the deposit, you have forfeited the deposit.In the unlikely event that the camp is cancelled you will get all money back. Note that I have never had to cancel and it would take some extraordinary condition for that to happen.

Beliefs

  • There is Power in Creation - Creating something uniquely yours is powerful. It’s fulfilling and a great way to express emotion, ideas or just enjoy life. Put something new into the world that would not have existed if not for you.

  • Creation is for Everyone - Everyone who is good at something started out sucking. So let’s get started!

  • Community - It’s helpful to be surrounded by other creative people for motivation, feedback and good times. Social accountability is not to be underestimated.

  • Finish Something - Getting something completed and out into the world is more important than endless planning and hypothesising. Nothing will ever be perfect, so at som point we have to accept "good enough".

  • Expand Viewpoint - Creation is done best with a mix of focused work, letting the mind wander and incorporating other’s opinions and ideas.

Email list for future camps

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How old are participants? Most who join is 25-35, youngest has been 19 and oldest 54. Everyone is welcome regardless of age!

  • Where are participants from? Most are from Europe. We have had participants from Sweden, Venezuela, Ukraine, Germany, Netherlands, Colombia, France, Romania, ...

  • Is it possible to work remotely during the camp? It is possible, you chose what to prioritize and how to spend your time yourself. We have had people work during camps before. However, I would not recommend more than working 50% if you want a good experience. If you want to have time to both work on creative projects, join excursions and sessions and spend some time with the other campers there is not much additional time to go around.

  • What is the process before the camp? I will create a WhatsApp group a week before the camp for everyone to start getting to know each other and to share more specific information.

  • Towels and bed linen? Are included.

Join WhatsApp Community

The WhatsApp community is where you can keep meet with others who enjoy creation. It's a way to more continuously get motivated and inspired by seeing what other campers are working on and share what you are up to. We run remote creative weeks and a group of constant show-and-tell.

Background

I’m Markus, the founder of Creative Camp. I’m a Swede with a passion for different creative pursuits, like art, music, design and software. I run an Investing app, do data science consulting and am currently building a software tool to speed up the creation of high fidelity illustrations using AI. I took an art class 10 years ago with an amazing community; where people improved rapidly and had a great time learning and creating. I have missed that community feeling for creation ever since. The idea for Creative Camp came after a surf camp where the people were amazing but I felt something was missing since I didn’t create anything or progress in areas I cared about. So I started Creative Camp!
