Covid-19

Due to Covid-19 there won’t be a Happy Camp until further notice.

The Happy Camp

The Happy Camp is a 6-day learning retreat for young women (age 16-24), where participants get to explore different principals of happiness through fun and exciting activities. It’s a camp for self-development! You will get to challenge yourself in new and creative ways. Your days will be filled with lazy mornings, delicious food, group gatherings, organized activities and relaxing free time. Our camp is, in other words, a combination of an active vacation and an intensive happiness course. At the end of the week, you will have learned ways to create more happiness for yourself, others, animals and the planet. Which then, you will have the opportunity to graduate as a Happiness Ambassador.

Our Philosophy

Happiness is a state of mind, but it’s not a static condition. The Happiness Company believes that when people are given the right tools and create a strong foundation of positivity, they will know have to get out of any misery, challenge or tough situation. They will know how to always come back to a state of pride, confidence and being themselves. Our philosophy is that when people are in the present moment, everything is available to them. Their creativity, their intelligence, the full range of their emotions – are all available. And, so you can choose. You can choose to be the better person, to yourself, to others and to the world. This is where change happens!

You are the creator of your life! You can create the life you want! You can make a difference!

This leads to less crime, less violence, less fear, less loneliness, less depression and anxiety, less bullying, less suffering. We will have a happier and more thriving society! When you are truly happy, you will also want others to feel the same. Our philosophy is that being happy, is a continual process and the journey towards happiness is its own reward.

Locations

Our camp base is located in the beautiful rural areas outside of Kongsberg, Norway. Only one-and-a-half-hour drive from Oslo, you will find the quiet and peaceful countryside, with plenty of distance between farms. The camp will take place on a farm adjacent to the Numedalslågen river, overseen by a majestic mountain forest. This farm has been in the family since before the 14th century, and holds dogs, cats, horses and parrots, and have fields that grow different types of vegetables. It has a big farm house, with 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and 2 kitchens, and a stabbur with several sleeping possibilities.

The cabin is part of the farm’s 450 hectares, and is nestled in the spruce forest overlooking a beautiful mountain lake where there is access to boats, hot tub, and a gapahuk. It’s a small cozy cabin that allows for a reconnection with nature.

Høyt og Lavt is a climbing park located nearby the farm. It’s Scandinavia’s biggest climbing park, well known for its zip line across the Numedalslågen river. They offer individualized activities for all skill levels.

Borrehaugene forms part of the Borre National Park, and is home to the most extensice collection of king’s graves in Scandinavia. Outside of its historical teachings, the park has a powerful spiritual experience, because of the conservation of the century old trees and surrounding nature.

Tønsberg is a perfect summer city to visit, with it’s harbor, shopping treats, cozy cafés and its buzzling summer life.
