FAMILY CAMP IS NOW FULL
Everyone in your bubble must do a lateral flow test before coming and show us when you arrive and sign in (please don't come if it is a positive test result and you will be fully refunded no questions asked). Please bring everything you need with you - there are no local shops, only shops in Aberystwyth. Virus levels are low locally and we must treat our campsite as a quarantined bubble. When venturing out to tourist attractions please follow all Welsh Guidelines and stay safe.
We can't wait to welcome you to our glorious farm in Wales! It's been a long tough time stuck at home, and now the Mountains await!
Join us on the Fire in the Mountain Festival site for a fun packed week. Plans are still being hatched, but here is what to expect: All Inclusive Procession on Friday Night Spanking hot showers from Posh Wash in the Camping Field + Wood fired showers in the valley Forest School Sessions, Workshops and Games Hot Tub and Sauna Pizza Ovens and Bar open on Thursday and Friday Nights Paddling and Dam Making in the Stream Yummy Food from the Camp Kitchen Family Activity Marquee plus lots of smaller workshop tents Marshmallows and Music around the Dragon Fire
There will two sizes of plots to accommodate families and larger groups. We ask that you abide by the current guidelines for WALES regarding numbers of people/households camping together.
There will be tents around to provide dry space and places for activities
We are sure many of you found amazing ideas and new skills during lockdown and we ask that you bring and share. This is a camp about community and creating what you want it to be. This was very successful during our previous camp, however this year we are going to experiment with providing some additional paid-for activities such as forest school, crafts, music sessions, songs, nature walks, dance etc. More details to come….
Every evening we will all convene in a central marquee for an early evening folk dance (….restrictions permitting). The evening dance is included in the ticket price. Everyone can enjoy being on the farm, or use the camp as a springboard to explore the local area with it's fantastic beaches, horse riding, mountain walks etc. We're compiling a list of local attractions now.
(and parents….shh....the bar will be open on Thursday and Friday evening)
We have wonderful caterers on site. We recommend you order your meals in advance so we don't sell out. You can order full catering or any mix of meals per day (Break only, Lunch only, Dinner only etc). The pizza oven will also be fired up one evening.
