Some of our gatherings are dubbed ‘Natural High’. You’ll find the currently planned ones detailed below. But what’s the meaning behind this term?
Let’s enjoy a splendid escapade high in the breathtaking Alps, with no need for artificial stimulants! We’ll steer clear of alcohol and other substances, relying on our bodies to produce adrenaline, endorphins, serotonin, dopamine, and plenty of oxytocin for an euphoric experience :)
For us, ‘Natural High’ or ‘Naturally High’ means: zero intoxication – so no alcohol or other drugs.
Drug use, besides alcohol, has been exceedingly rare at Crazy Camps. Perhaps one or two members of a group at one or two Crazy Camps have indulged in a joint. However, alcohol is a different story; it’s not unusual for participants to enjoy a beer or two, or a glass of wine with dinner. Nevertheless, this has always been within reason; out of approximately 45 Crazy Camps to date (as of winter 2022), there have only been 2 or 3 instances where a group member was irritatingly drunk.
So, the ‘Natural High’ designation for most Crazy Camps is a natural progression :)
A note about cigarettes/tobacco: Read
Why are alcohol and drugs not popular at Crazy Camps?
We don’t judge alcohol or drug use – in fact, at Crazy Camps, we generally avoid judging altogether :)
The essence of Crazy Camps is that you’ll experience a natural state of being ‘high’ due to the unique elements that make them special:
- The extraordinary location of our lodgings, nestled high in the awe-inspiring mountains, far from villages and ‘civilisation’
- A vibrant social environment with diverse, international groups representing various ages, gender identities, nationalities, and more
- The incredible activities on offer, such as hiking and swimming in the summer or skiing and snowboarding in the winter, alongside crazy group games, meditations, and comfort zone challenges.
What about the cuisine?
I touched on the hormones our bodies produce – at Crazy Camps labelled ‘Natural High’, we won’t consume external hormone sources, or in simpler terms: products derived from animals. We’ll relish in vegan fare! Even if you’re not vegan, you’ll appreciate the deliciousness and variety of well-prepared vegan dishes :) To learn more, head over to Your vegan retreat in the mountains ???
Why all these rules?
They’re not rules :) it’s merely commitments we make together. If you’re not keen on abstaining from external stimulants, feel free to sign up for one of the other Crazy Camps instead :)
