Folk Camps is a charity and a company limited by guarantee. It is a democratic organisation: the governing members make decisions on how the organisation is run.
Benefits of becoming a Governing Member
- Able to vote at general meetings, including voting to elect the Council of Management which runs Folk Camps Society Ltd.
- Eligible to stand for Folk Camps Council.
- Can apply for a Folk Camps Development Grant.
How to Become a Governing Member
To become a governing member, and to have your say in how Folk Camps is run, then you need to fill in the application form, and pay the membership fee. It costs just £1 per year (minimum 5 years).
Everyone that attends a Folk Camp is an Associate Member for one year, however without the benefits of governing membership.
