A folk camp is a community of friendly people, camping in beautiful countryside and engaging in folk music, dance and song.
Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the 2020 programme of camps was cancelled, but if you join the emailing list we will let you know about further events both real and virtual. Find out more about our plans for 2021.
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 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.
