A folk camp is a community of friendly people, organised by volunteers, camping in beautiful countryside and engaging in folk music, dance and song. Campers share their expertise and abilities to teach others and are expected to give a few hours of their time to help in the tasks which enable the camp to run.
The programme for 2024 is available to view and book here. The few gaps in the staffing are being filled imminently. Bookings are now open.
Folk Camps holidays are environmentally-friendly.
We run Folk Camps as normally as possible and aim to minimise risks. Details in our Covid Policy.
People from all generations and walks of life come to Folk Camps, mixing easily together. Children have lots of fun and adults find they can relax, knowing their family is happy and in a safe environment.
We have all-inclusive camps in summer where volunteers organise workshops, daytime activities and evening entertainment.
“An excellent camp and site…will come back with extended family next year!!”
On weekend camps it’s self-catering, at week-long summer camps your meals are provided by different teams of campers who prepare food each day and we eat communally. You don’t have to join in everything. There’s plenty of time to visit tourist attractions nearby, or to go to a beach or have an afternoon out.
Campers bring their own tent, campervan or caravan. There are flush toilets and shower facilities. With a volunteer leader, musician, warden and caterer to organise the camp, different generations mix easily and you’d be amazed how quickly you’ll feel at home at Folk Camps.
Don’t just take our word for it, this is what people are saying about Folk Camps.
