The summer of 2010 will see the starting point for what we hope will become a yearly summer camp for women ( including those who are, have been or is about to become women) interested in BDSM and fetishism. Wish invites you to an exciting, long weekend on the west coast of Sweden, filled with happenings and activities play areas, several workshops and fantastic surroundings to explore. It will also be a perfect opportunity for bikers to get together, of course under the conditions that you understand and respect the BDSM- and fetishist theme. Furthermore, the week after the camp is Stockholm Pride week so this is a perfect opportunity to get the most out of a stay in Sweden
The camp will take place from Wednesday the 21th of July to Sunday the 25th of July. If anyone is interested in arriving earlier this can be arranged at the time of registration. Before Wednesday there will be guests of both sexes at the estate, but all those present will be respecting the BDSM and fetish focus of the stay. From Wednesday only those attending the Wish Powerexchange camp will be present, as well as personnel taking care of the practicalities on the estate. In order to promote a good atmosphere we would prefer if the participants stayed for the whole duration of the camp. This means we will prioritize those who register for the whole period. Registrations for shorter time periods will be accepted provided that there is room. The most important thing is that you have arrived at 18:00 on Wednesday evening. That is when the camp is officially presented, along with the participants. There will be a common dinner and a tour of the premises and the play areas.
The cost of the camp is 2700 SEK (260 €), and that includes both room and board. There will be a possibility to reduce the fee by 300 SEK (29€)/day if you are willing to for example help in the kitchen or with cleaning during a couple of hours per day. This is a way to facilitate coming to the camp for everyone.
The camp takes place on the west coast of Sweden, surrounded by beautiful nature and close to the beautiful town of Smögen, as well as Nordens ark, an animal sanctuary for endangered species. There is walking distance to a picturesque beach perfect for swimming.
On the estate there are newly renovated, spacious shower- and bathrooms. There are washing and drying facilities for clothes as well. On the yard there is a bathing tub (hot tub) where you can take a relaxing hot bath in the summer evening, both before and after indulging in different activities. There is a sauna under construction, which may be completed in time for the camp. Inside there are play rooms with furniture and equipment for s/m and bondage play, such as a gynecologists chair, bondage chair, whipping benches, metal poles, Andreas’ crosses, winches in the ceiling and mattresses. Since the estate has an enclosed yard, there are also possibilities to play outside. In the basement there is a lockable dungeon with a booking system for more private encounters. We also have some possibilities to arrange especially themed areas such as a clinic or a classroom, if you let us know in advance of you preferences and wishes. Further there is a well equipped leather workshop for those who want to make their own toys or clothes. A leather smith will be at your disposal, and you can either bring your own materials, or buy on site.

Bedrooms are shared, with four people in each room. There is also a possibility to put your own van, trailer or tent in the yard. Depending on the number of participants, there may be a possibility for couples to get their own rooms, please tell us when you register if you want to be on the list for this option. All the participants must bring their own bed linen and towels. (For those of you who have a luggage limitation please let us know when booking that you will need to rent bed linen) We will also ask you to clean your rooms before departing.
Meals are included in the fee. Breakfast is served from about 9:00-12:00 am, and there will be coffee and sandwiches around 3:00 pm. Dinner is served around 7:00 pm, with occasion to dress up for those who want to. Fruit and snacks will be available throughout the day.
There will be a self-service bar with alcoholic beverages at a low cost.
The camp is international, and therefore the official languages will be both English and Swedish.
Unfortunately the camp is not well adapted for wheelchair access. If you have any specific questions regarding disability access, please do not hesitate to mail us.
On Thursday, Friday and Saturday, workshops will be arranged during the afternoons. The topics will include for example Shibari bondage, whipping and “mind control”. All the workshops will be held in English. If you have any special skill or knowledge that you would like to share, we welcome suggestions for lectures, workshops, and demonstrations of all kinds.
There is a wireless Internet connection at the estate. It is, however, very weak, so we cannot assure a reliable connection.
