What's a folk camp?


Folk Camps are held all over the UK and sometimes in other European countries. We try to find sites in attractive locations, where there are also lots of places to visit and things to do. There will be a field to camp on and either a hall or a marquee for eating, dancing, playing, singing and any number of other activities.

Camps will have flush toilets, pump-up showers, big ovens, cooking ranges and some volunteer staff to keep things running as smoothly as possible.

What do I need to bring?

Plates, cutlery, a tent, a sleeping bag, a torch, wellies and probably some clothes. If you prefer, you can usually bring a camper van or a caravan but our fields don't have caravan park style "hook ups".
