Very important to recomment that by all times, parents themselves are responsable for their children all the time, we are „not a profesional childrens home“!

We will provide and host „Workshops“ for the children.
And also here... the parents are still responsable.
There will be a little wichkitchen, creating dreamcatchers, ojo de dios, earthwork, painting, drawing, glueing, etc, etc...

When the ritual inside of the Kiva with the Elders are held, most of the time during the morning and the end of the day, there will be no workshops. And no one except their parents look after their own children inside the childrens area.

So we are kindly asking you to keep taking your responsability as a parent and see it as a beautiful opportunity to have time with your children at the Kiva, by playing, praying, being creative, dancing, singing, jumping, climbing, enz..., enjoying being, experiencing together!

With a warm heart we welcome you to pray and play at the childrensground of the Kiva!



School for survival with nature.


Also present at KIVA in 2019. We create space to engage with the practical skills that bring us back to Earth. Here you learn to work with natural materials such as bone, antlers and bark. Materials from this country. We are there for all ages. We will also organize extra activities for young people this year, Nature Awareness & Native skills!


At Bosbeweging you learn to survive in a native way, in the middle of Dutch nature.


We go back to the origin. Where skills and intuition come to life and where we make optimal use of our senses and instincts. Learn how to feel at home in the forest without modern items. Discover a way of life based on nature. Find and prepare food in an earth oven, make a fire with an arc and adjust your consciousness to the rhythm of the forest. The forest is more than a backdrop.









For the realisation of this 4 days-gathering we ask a contribution, this includes the stay on the camp-side, participation of the kiva-ceremony, workshops and 4 days of vegetarian and 95% biological meals and drinks. We can NOT serve special diet-wishes, please bring your own, thanks!

We decided this year that we only go for the 4 days's stay, For the people from abroad of Holland, and have much more costs for traveling to Borculo, we have a lower contribution.
For the Dutchies, who don't have as many costs for traveling we have made the contribution a bit higher than last year, this to cover all the costs.

4 days stay for the Dutchies ;-)

The Elders will share everyday their stories and wisdom in a kind of form of a workshop. Welcome!

There will be these days little market-shops where the indigenous people will show and sell their beautifull handycrafts.

Every morning we will have sweatlodge's - inipi's for a fresh, clean and connected start of the day...


For camping bring you own tent.
( Many people ask if we provide tents, We do not have tent's, please bring your own )
Take clothes with you who are suitable to the weather.
Bring your own plate, cup, soup bowl and cutlery !!!
A torch is also very handy...
For the sweatlodge bring towels. And for the woman a sarong/skirt and for the man a short trousers.


During the 4 days stay on the ceremonial ground and campside it's not allowed to use, or be under influence of alcohol and any (soft)drugs.
Thank you ;-)


Because we will be for 4 days together as one tribe, it is nice if we all help to keep the "river" flowing in the good direction. So we will attend you to contribute in this.
There will be work in the kitchen, toilets, coffee/tea- bar, around the sweatlodges, etc... Thanks a lot… ;-)
