Who is Camp for?

If you want to become more involved in your community, then chances are Camp is for you! We’re lucky enough to welcome people from all walks of life at Camp.

We recommend applying to Camp if:

  • you’re just starting out on your journey, and want to learn more with others
  • you’re not sure where to start with your community project
  • you held a Big Lunch for the first time and are keen to do more
  • you were involved with mutual aid groups or helping neighbours and those in your community during Covid-19
  • you have a little more time to get involved in your community now due to a change in education or employment

A little extra info

Community Camps are specifically for the benefit of voluntary community members, and unfortunately we’re unable to allocate funded places to people who are applying as part of a paid community role, or those who have attended a camp at Eden or online before.

As part of our funding requirements, we need to follow up with everyone to find out how they’re getting on after Camp, what they’ve been up to and what it is they’re doing in their communities.
