The 29th Vegan Camp will be held at Newquay, Cornwall, from Saturday 1 August to Saturday 15 August
Vegan Camp is a friendly and enjoyable annual social gathering for singles, couples and families.
Each year we choose a new location (this year Newquay) with people coming to stay from day visits to the full two weeks. Most camp on the site but some stay in luxury holiday caravans on site or in nearby hotels, guesthouses or hostels and visit during the day. There are usually between 60 and 130 people over the 2-week
period, including many new faces although some of us have been coming for 10 years or more. We often have communal meals (sometimes with a talent show),
sing songs, camp fires (if allowed) and just general lounge-abouts. We enjoy outings to the beach, walks in the countryside, picnics and visiting local places of interest.
We are a diverse group with ages from babies up to those in their 70s, singles, couples and families. Some people come every year and some when we are in their area. What is consistent is the friendly, helpful and fun atmosphere. We can draw on the talents and enthusiasm of some of those attending to put on events which in the past have included circus skills workshops, first-aid lessons, raw- and wild-food workshops, rock climbing, surfing, orienteering, meditation, talent shows and yoga. We welcome new skills or offers and suggestions. Many children attend and it is an ideal time for them to meet other vegan children and to see that they are not the odd ones out. Children and adults form many friendships at the camp.
This year's camp is located at the delightful Rejerrah in Cornwall, near Newquay. Close by are the Eden Project, Land's End, Flambards Theme Park, the quaint town of Padstow and Paradise Park, to name but a few. With Cornwall's extensive coastline there are plenty of water sports on offer and the superb beaches of Perranporth and Newquay are just minutes away.
