Intimate Earthsong weekend camps in East Clare

Healing Drum Camp

June 2022
Arrivals from Thursday 

Starts Friday at 2pm
Finishes Wednesday at noon


Facilitation by John Bowker.

Healing Drum is aimed specifically at those who have some experience of Earthsong or Tribal Spirit Drumming weekends. While there is an emphasis on drumming, a wide variety of indigenous cultural healing tools are offered to create the possibility of deep transformation. Enjoy the Sweat Lodge, Native American chants, Dance of Life, Sharing Lodge and more. The safety of the camp allows a very playful spirit to come out and this sense of play skips throughout the whole week and lights up the journey for everyone.

June 2022
Arrivals from Thursday 

Starts Friday at 10am

Facilitation by John Bowker, Su Hart, Martin Cradick, Blaithin Crowley and Robert Green.


The Midsummer Solstice Camp is a celebratory camp that captures all the joy and mischief of this time of year. 

Some of the offerings include Tribal Spirit Drumming Beginners Sessions (drums provided), Heartsong Project, Rainforest songs & Clapping rhythms from Cameroon, Astrodrama, Trance Drumming, Healing Drum, Native American Chants, African Forest Songs, Megalithic Mythology, morning Yoga, Dance of Life and evening sauna.

The Glendree Camps provide an intimate retreat space in the beautiful surrounds of East Clare. The Earthsong ethos during these camps allows people to authentically connect with the people and nature around them. John Bowker, an experienced and incredibly talented drum circle and voice facilitator leads these camps with his signature style of humour and depth, high energy and playfulness.



The Glendree Camps are held in a secluded location with magnificent views overlooking east Clare. The site has woodlands, a private swimming lake, a very impressive stone circle, two  yurts, a hot shower cabin, and eco-toilets. There is also a Sauna Yurt for the ultimate glamping experience.

All the Glendree camps have the Earthsong ethos and rules, no late night noise or electric music, no mobile phone use on site, no visitors, no alcohol or drug use.

On both camps, arrivals are welcome from the Thursday midday and there is an option to stay until Monday afternoon. Unlike the Earthsong Tipperary camps, the Glendree camps are not suitable for children as the lake is deep and has steep sides. However, teens from the age of 14 are very welcome when accompanied by an adult guardian.




The Glendree site offers this year other accommodations than just camping, for those who seek a bit more comfort. There is a yurt dormitory for 6 people heated with a wood stove. There are yurts and bell tents to rent and there is a bed & breakfast option nearby. You can book these accommodations during the online booking below.
