How It Works

  • Our online Community Camps are held on Zoom from the comfort of your own home. We aim for more than just your usual online workshops, we will bring our unique Community Camp experience straight to you.
  • There'll be space to connect with other Camp participants, practical sessions to engage with from your own community or home, and we'll send you a resource pack too.
  • Our face-to-face Community Camps are held at the Eden Project in Cornwall over the course of a weekend. Travel and accommodation is funded, sessions will be held at various locations, and you will be able to meet and chat to other Camp participants throughout your time there.
  • We are committed to being inclusive so please talk to us about any additional requirements you may have and we will do our best to support you.

 

Don't just take our word for it...

Take a look at our recent Facebook Live Stream Interview with previous Camp participant, Saffi to hear how the experience has benefited her, and her community.

99% of the 2020 participants rated the programme either excellent or good overall, and 97% would recommend virtual Community Camp to others. Here's what some had to say...

"There was so much content, resource, speakers but delivered in a way that felt comfortable and welcoming. It felt like a safe space to be open and learn."

"I think the camp would benefit so many people and not just those who are engaged in the community or looking to engage others - there were useful things for everybody, especially at a time when we need to be coming together and looking forwards after what has been an awful year."

"It has been a very rewarding experience, I have learnt a lot, met a lot of inspiring people and now feel more prepared, confident and motivated to make projects happen in my community. Thank you!"   ...2020 virtual Community Camp participants
