Whether you’re a fan of Harry Potter or not, there’s no denying a 4-day Harry Potter-inspired wizardry workshop at the Czocha Castle in Poland would be an incredible experience. For the very reasonable price of $430-480 US, you would get free food and lodging at the castle, and get to share the memories with 140 fellow Harrylicious friends at the College of Wizardry (CoW).
Here’s what’s on the agenda: 1) attend classes as a witch or wizard and learn the magical arts; 2) be selected to represent one of the five ancient Houses of Czocha Castle; 3) explore the castle and meet the magical creatures that roam the grounds; 4) make new friends and form long lasting bonds with like-minded people; 5) get into discussions, stir up shenanigans, and play games; 6) perhaps even a little (in-character) romance?; 7) spend 3 nights at a castle in Poland and have a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
You can get there yourself, or there’s also a cheap bus from Berlin. CoW9 (November 17-20, 2016) and CoW10 (November 24-27, 2016) are all booked up, but there’s a waiting list you can sign up for HERE (CoW9) and HERE (CoW10). However, if you want to be sure to get a spot there are ones available as of today for CoW11 (March 16-19, 2017) HERE. You can get all the detail by visiting the College of Wizardry.
