SADLY THIS YEAR’S PARISH CAMP HAS HAD TO BE CANCELLED
Due to the current pandemic, we will not be holding Parish Camp this year. We will make sure that all those who have already booked with be refunded in full.
We recognise that this is disappointing and have not taken the decision lightly, particularly as we had great plans in place for this year. However, it is important that we are able to keep everyone safe and it would be impossible to be socially distanced at Camp.
On a more positive note, we are keen as a group to do something as a church around the time that Camp would have run – maybe a “bring and not share” picnic on the moor! However, there are so many unknowns, we would have to decide what we did much closer to the time.
We are of course planning to hold Camp next year, most likely in the last full week of July, and will let you know as soon as the dates are confirmed.

Just to remind you, Parish Camp has:
Parish Camp is held at Stoke Fleming (near Dartmouth) in a beautiful location overlooking the sea and has permanent toilets, kitchen, and shower blocks. In addition the site has a large marquee for meals and meetings.
Days free to do want you want
A typical day at camp starts with breakfast followed by a short morning session (notices, a 5 minute thought for the day, and songs). You’re then furnished with a packed lunch, leaving most of the day free for you to spend as you would like until meeting again for the evening meal. Blackpool Sands, a privately run beach, is only about ¼ mile away, and many people choose to spend time there, although there are numerous other attractions in the area.
Great times of fellowship
Each evening there is a time of worship, teaching and ministry led by our guest speaker. The teaching builds throughout the week, ending in a time of celebration on the Friday morning. There is a programme of activities for the children and young people which runs alongside.
A low-cost holiday
Parish Camp costs from £99.00 per adult for the whole week including all food.There are also significant discounts for young people and children (under 2’s are free). See the Booking Form for full details of the discounts and daily rates.
If you would like to come but cannot afford it, please speak to Liz Middlebrook or Rachel Perry, as funds have been put by for this.
Flexible to your needs
There are tents available on site if you do not have your own. Not able to camp? Then why not try one of the local B&B establishments? If you cannot stay all week, perhaps you might like to pop over for a day or two, or just visit for the day.
