WELCOME TO THE CA WORLD CONVENTION IN THE NETHERLANDS!

WELCOME FRIENDS

The 2024 World Convention of Cocaine Anonymous (CA) is coming to Holland!!!!!! Our World Convention will bring together CA members from all around the world to share their experience, strength, and hope. The 2024 convention is scheduled to take place in Noordwijkerhout, Netherlands, from 11 till 15 July, under the theme of “Hope, Faith, Courage.” For those who are not able to physically attend the convention we will have a tailored online experience to ensure everyone can get a taste of CAWS 2024.

Our convention is a momentous occasion for CA members, you will have the opportunity to attend various meetings, speakers, workshops, and excursions. These events will be geared towards promoting the spirit of camaraderie and support, which are critical to our recovery.

One of the main objectives of the World Convention is to provide support to the newcomer. Together we can achieve this if we all bring newcomers to the convention [#BRINGANEWCOMER] and putting them “on fire”, through sharing our personal stories, discussions on how we stay clean & sober, and various workshops aimed at helping our members develop and maintain their recovery.

If you are financially unable to pay for (part of) the registration you can apply for the Fellow2Fellow fund (Scholarship). The Fellow2Fellow fund is made possible by voluntary contributions from members of our fellowship. To apply for a scholarship please send an email to our convention chair: chair@caws2024.nl

Camping site:
For the more adventurous types in our fellowship, we can share a tip with you. There is a camping site near
the hotel. It’s only a 10-ish minute walk (1 km or 0,6 miles). The convention will be in the summer, so it could
be a great alternative. It is a bit cheaper too 😉 I know from experience that CA will be well represented on the
camping site.
You have to bring your own tent, caravan or other material since they don’t offer any pre-set up tents. If you’re
interested, go visit: www.campingophoopvanzegen.nl, and make sure to make your reservation on time.
