Camphill Movement

The Camphill Movement runs communities in England and Wales which offer opportunities for people with special needs to live, learn and work with others of all abilities in an atmosphere of mutual care and respect.

The communities are run on three guiding principles, derived from the 'Steiner Waldorf' curriculum.

Those three principles are

  • importance of community life
  • sharing of experiences and resources
  • development of a social, educational, and therapeutic approach
