Welcome! Camphill Village Store is an online shop dedicated to products made by Camphill Village Copake, an integrated community where people with developmental differences are living a life of dignity, equality, and purpose.
All of our sales benefit the lives of the adults with special needs who are involved in either designing or producing these products here at Camphill Village Copake. These products are made in our therapeutic craft studios with the help of volunteers under the supervision of professional work masters. In these social spaces, creativity and commitment to craft blend to create stunning items for your home, embodying great care, devotion, and a sense of wellbeing.
The raw materials for our unique goods are locally sourced or home grown, including beeswax from a bee farm in Ithaca, NY; lumber that was either harvested on our own property or donated by a local flooring manufacturer; and roots, flowers, and seeds that are harvested in our gardens before being transformed into herbal cosmetics, teas, and culinary spice mixes.
Buying a Camphill Village product allows people with different abilities to explore meaning through a social human activity that Camphill holds dear—the labor of one for another. Our products are meant to enrich your life and be useful. Enjoy them. We would love to hear about your experience and your thoughts about our work.
We hope to grow and develop and gradually introduce more of the high quality products that we already create and use in our own community, as well as branded clothing and accessories that will support our community.
We invite you to weave a piece of our community into your own traditions.
