If camping or caravanning is your thing, why not try one of the two campsites that are run by volunteers only for the duration of the Convention weeks.
Crosthwaite campsite is in a wonderful location nestling against a backdrop of Lakeland peaks on the edge of Keswick. We are an all-age family and youth orientated, friendly campsite, run by volunteers. The site is suitable for tents, caravans and a limited number of small camper vans.
It uses sheep pastures made available by local farmers for the use of Convention attendees only. The fields are located a fifteen minute walk from the main children and youth site at Rawnsley and a further fifteen minutes' walk through the town to the main convention site at Skiddaw Street.
The convention provides a transfer bus from the camp to both Rawnlsey and the Skiddaw Street sites. These buses are primarily for those who find the walk too difficult.
The camp provides showers and toilets, water points and recycle refuse points. The camp is self-catering, and you will need to bring all your own camping, sleeping and cooking equipment with you. Phone charging facilities are available on site.
We have had a wide range of youth, family and individual groups who return year after year, so please book early as the site is very popular and books up quickly.
This is a friendly all-age camp based on a local farm within close walking distance of the Convention Centre and Main Tent, run for the three weeks of the Convention. You bring your own tent, motorhome or caravan and all meals, showers and toilets are provided. A wonderful blend of fellowship, fun, mealtimes together in the marquee, a launch trip on Derwentwater, maybe an afternoon kayaking or stroll up Castlehead as well as planning your own timetable of Convention events. Old and new friends welcome!
