2nd Annual Winter Solstice Gathering
Dec 16 @ 3:00 PM – Dec 17 @ 7:00 AM

Sanctuary: RSG 2nd Annual Winter Solstice Gathering

Dec 16 – 17 from 3pm to 7am

Camp Chowenwaw

Join us as we tend a sacred fire for an ALL NIGHT celebration of the Sun’s yearly cycle!  Several members of the NE FL Pagan Leadership Coalition will lead workshops and rituals from sunset to sunrise to help keep us awake and enjoying our variety of festivities!

This year we have reserved both the Hickory Flats Campgrounds as well as the Ahwenassa Cabins site!  These sites are on the far end of the Chowenwaw camping grounds and will allow for us to drum, sing, chant, and be merry all night without disturbing others!

We are asking for a small participation donation to cover campgrounds, dinner, snacks, beverages, breakfast, and other expenses!  Participation fee: $12 / adult and $7 / child (16 and under, must be accompanied by paid adult).

Optional sleeping arrangements:  If you cannot stay up all night, we will have the option of limited campsites and cabins available!

  • Campsites are located in Hickory Flats, where all activities will be located.  Please note this means that there will be noise there all night long, but rest assured those that had tents were able to sleep just fine.  One campsite fits 1 large tent and costs $20.
  • Ahwenassa Cabin site is down the path between the parking lot and Hickory Flats and will be quieter.  One cabin fits 4 people with 1 bunk bed and 1 full size mattress.  You will need to bring your own bedding and pillows for mattresses.  Each cabin also has a window heat / air unit.  One cabin costs $50.

****Due to campground rules, unfortunately no pets are allowed so please make arrangements for your furbabies before registering to attend!****

Event hosts = Sanctuary: Realms of Spiritual Growth is an open Pagan community group. We hold rituals, spiritual discussions, craft nights, and coordinate Jacksonville Pagan Pride Alliance, Inc as well as Winter Solstice Gathering!  Find us on facebook!
