Welcome to Vegan Camp 2018
This year Vegan Camp will be at Barn Farm, Birchover, Matlock, Derbyshire. DE4 2BL.
Vegan Camp is a friendly and enjoyable annual social gathering for singles, couples and families. Each year we choose a new location with people coming to stay from day visits to the full two weeks. This year, the location is:
Barn Farm, Birchover, Matlock, Derbyshire DE4 2BL.
Saturday the 28th July – Sunday 12th August
For the past 38 summers, a group of vegans(and those willing to be vegan for at least the duration of the camp) will have met at numerous venues throughout the country. Last year’s camp was Horton on the Gower Peninsula, Wales,(2017), the year before was Isle of Whithorn, Scotland (2016) and next year we plan to be in Bude North Cornwall or Riverside HP, Devon(2019)
We usually have 100 to 160 people who come to stay over the 2 week period. Many of us have been coming for 20 years and more, whilst many others are more recent. Russell and Daniel (Dan) have each attended 36 out of 37! We are a diverse group with ages from babies up to those in their 70’s, singles, couples and families. Some people come every year. Some come when we are in their area.
What is consistent is the friendly, helpful and fun atmosphere at our camps. We are able to draw on the many talents and enthusiasm of some of those attending to put on events which in the past has included such things as circus skills workshops, first aid lessons, raw and wild food workshops, cookery for children, rock climbing, surfing, orienteering, meditation, talent shows, yoga etc. we would always welcome new skills or offers and suggestions. We have many children attending each year and it is an ideal time for them to meet other vegan children and to see that they are not the odd one out. Children and adults too form many friendships at the camp.
