About The Camp

We want as many people as possible to feel comfortable at the camp, so please no heavy drinking or loud music. The camp will be run not for you but by you, so please be prepared to help out with the running of the camp.

Please let us know (contact details below) if you are thinking of coming, so we have an idea of numbers for catering, etc.

People are also needed to help with camp set up on Friday, and 'tat down' - taking down the camp - on Monday morning, so please let us know if you are able to help out with either of those.
