Community Camps are residential camps held at the Eden Project in Cornwall, offering a mixture of practical activities, workshop sessions and networking opportunities. They’re for people in the UK who want to start a community initiative or take an existing project to the next level, and are pitched at a level for people starting out on their journey.

HERE’S WHAT A TYPICAL CAMP INCLUDES:
Focused workshops: Select from a menu of different themes to tailor your experience. These could include topics such as financing your project, spreading the word through social media, or a ‘how to’ on rejuvenating green spaces.
Practical activities: A selection of taster sessions offering ideas on how to best engage with the people in your own neighbourhood.
Networking: An opportunity to meet like-minded people, establish new useful connections and get a different perspective on things — whether it’s through one of our workshops or over a cuppa.
Practical resources: You’ll come away with a set of useful materials that will help support you once you’re back in your community.
Social activities: There’ll be plenty of chances to enjoy a delicious meal and chat with others in the same boat. During your free time you can also explore Eden in all its wonder.
On-site accommodation: You’ll stay onsite in the YHA Snoozeboxes — made from shipping containers!
Delicious food: All meals will be provided during your residential stay — plus plenty of tea and cake!
