From September 15, 2018 till September 22, 2018 the Crazy Sensual Journey Camp will take place in the astonishing hills of Tuscany in Italy. Hiking, exploring our Senses through fun and meaningful workshops etc., swimming in our pool and in mountain streams… Happiness!
Welcome to the world of CrazyCamp.org!
Far away from stress and noise: listen to your body and reconnect!
We’ll have a luxury villa just for our group in the beautiful forests and mountains of Tuscany, at an altitude of around 500m.
Both during days and during evenings we will do a diverse range of workshops, games and exercises to get back to our senses. Some of these workshops etc. will be in the villa or in the garden (and even in the swimming pool!) and some will be in remote places that we reach by hiking.
Other daytime activities will be hiking in the amazing landscapes with picnics and swimming in wild mountain streams as well as having a relaxed time in our huge garden and in the swimming pool. In the evening we’ll cook and eat together, we’ll enjoy the sauna and jacuzzi, and we will play crazy group games.
The Crazy Sensual Journey Camp will be a unique and unforgettable experience!
Location and accommodation
We will be in a luxury villa in the middle of beautiful nature: hills and mountains of max. around 1500m high, covered with forests and fields; wild mountain streams and here and there a tiny village.
The villa is amazing! Enormous garden with open air swimming pool; in the inside a sauna and a jacuzzi, nice kitchen facilities, several bathrooms with bath tubs and showers, a number of double- and triple rooms. No smoking in the house. In and around the house clothing is optional (faq). In order to connect best with your body, some of the exercises can best be done with as little clothing as possible; if you feel too naked when naked, a tank top and not-tight shorts would work as well.
Connect With Our Senses
Our body is our best friend – our loyal companion throughout Life. However, it’s a friend that we often neglect. Let’s get out of our minds, and back into our bodies!
Imagine if you will the analogy that the body is the horse and the mind is the rider, lets strengthen the relationship between the horse and rider by ‘reading’ better the horse, allowing a more embodied experience of self-love to unfold.
First of all, healthy food, meditations, and nature hikes will facilitate our shift from mind to body. Then we will be doing every day workshops and/or games and exercises that will train our senses and will help us reconnect with our bodies.
An example is: at one or more occasions we will eat while blindfolded; we will notice (and enjoy) how the taste and smell senses will be stimulated, just because the sight-sense was taken out of the equation.
The main human senses are:
Sight – Hearing – Taste – Smell – Touch – Balance – Temperature – Proprioception – Pain – Sexual Stimulation – Sense of Time.
We will work with most of these but probably not with all.
What we want to achieve during this week is to establish a better connection with our bodies, to have better understanding of what our body wants to tell us, and as a result have better awareness of what we want (and what we don’t want) in certain situations and in Life in general.
Some of the activities during workshops, games and exercises are to be done as individuals, some in pairs, some as a group.
Sprout Love is bringing his souls mission of awakening further into love, allowing love the freedom to express in whichever form it comes. On his journey he has been consciously exploring new paradigms of relating, Taoism, Tantra, Yogic Philosophy, Shamanism, Non-Duality Sacred Sexuality and Shibari for the past 10 years as his soul awakens to the vibration of his soul, allowing love to pierce through the illusion. We must first drop what we believe love to be in order for love to teach us. He often travels (and works) together with Yani.
Yani AKA The Yaniverse is an international facilitator, travelling the world teaching Tantra, Sacred Sexuality, Intimacy, Taoism and Orgasmic Bliss in a Magickal mix of Mystery.

Klaas. The Crazy Camp guy. The organiser that makes all these magical Crazy Camps happen – together with all participants. As a Mind&Body Worker his fields are trauma release and tantric-shamanic body-dearmouring. Love and acceptance are the keys. His slogan used to be “everybody is beautiful!” – now it evolved into “Everybody is!” and he finds it beautiful that everybody is :)
The combined efforts of Sprout, Yani and Klaas guarantee that this will not be a mainstream event. We strive to create a safe space where you can detach from your habits and inhibitions. And at the same time a safe place to say and act ‘no’ when you feel ‘no’. You are invited (not forced) to challenge your own comfort zone and you commit to respecting the boundaries of the others (faq). We will provide you with tools that can help you to recognise the ‘yes’ and the ‘no’ in yourself.
We are no guru’s, we don’t have a Universal Truth to reveal. We will share our experiences and understandings. Even though we facilitate the workshops, games and exercises, we will participate (let’s say as primi inter pares) in the other activities of the Crazy Sensual Journey Camp just as the other participants (again: see faq). Let’s walk this part of the Path together for one week :)
The hikes that we’ll be doing will take us through beautiful forests, peaceful fields and over hill tops and to amazing views. The hiking will not be very intensive – if you’re able to do a 5 hour hike back home, then you’ll be fine here as well.
There is a hiking program set up but it is not an obligation to participate; if you want to spend your days relaxedly searching for mushrooms or spotting birds, feel free to do so. Basically everybody is expected to participate in the group life at the end of the day and in the evening (faq) as well as the workshops, games and exercises.
One thing about hiking in groups. Keep in mind that a ‘stronger’ person can adapt to a ‘slower’ person, but a ‘slower’ person can not adapt to a ‘stronger’ person. So when we hike in a group, we’ll set the capabilities of the ‘slower’ group members as standard while the ‘stronger’ people will have the satisfaction of applying their social skills by adapting to the group :-)
You don’t really need to have experience in mountain hiking, but you will need a fair condition, good hiking shoes, a daypack, a water bottle, rain protection and something warmer also.
What if I love the idea but don’t want to join that ‘serious’ hiking?
I really like the whole idea and I would really like to join, but I’m really not into all this hiking. Are there options for me?
Yes there are. You can make shorter hikes for example around the villa. For these kind of hikes you don’t even need hiking shoes but forget about flip flops, heels and moccasins. If you’re into nature photography or drawing landscapes, you will find a multitude of subjects within 500 meters from the villa…
Most probably you will not be the only one that will not join the bigger hikes.
And there will be a fair amount of chilling at the pool and in the garden programmed anyway :)
If you would like to share some of your knowledge or skills, feel free! Maybe you want to teach us some capoeira, do a photoshoot or make us sing the traditionals of your native culture? Just some ideas… it really can be anything. And if you don’t have any such thing to share, that’s fine as well!
Your participation in the cost for these 7 days and nights is EUR 775 per person for accommodation, vegetarian food (that we will cook together), workshops etc. and tourist taxes.
or EUR 660 if you are female and you choose to use the Gender Pay Gap Compensation (faq)

Not a bad price! However, don’t come if you are only interested in an affordable holiday. The Crazy Body Senses Camp is all about togetherness, doing meaningful activities, and enjoying nature together!

Apart from singles and people that travel without their partner, a limited number of couples is welcome; however there are some things to keep in mind. The beds are allocated through a lottery (faq) and you are expected to open up and participate in all activities and group life. The group hugs will outnumber your couple-hugs! If you want to make sure that you share the room with your partner instead of participating in the lottery for beds, then you can indicate that while applying; your participation in the cost will then be EUR 775 per person plus EUR 100 for the ‘claim’. In case you’re in a love triangle and want to apply as such, you can claim a triple room in the same manner (EUR 775 per person plus EUR 100 for the ‘claim’)
