What to expect

Singing, Kayaking, Arts, Crafts, Open fires, Circus Skills, Yoga, Fun, Games, Lovely people.

A wonderful weekend at a personalised camp with less than 200 people. Families, single people, couples who all have a like minded positive attitude to spending time getting to know new people, developing new skills, or simply spending some much needed ‘gadget-free’ time with their friends and families.  Kayaking, Yoga, Family Games, Acoustic evenings, Singing, Drumming, Arts, Sports and always a marshmallow to roast! Here’s some footage from last years’ camp to give you a flavour of what’s in store. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KnNC9imekfw


Do I have to Sing?

Not unless you want to!  Our camp is organised by our Musical Director and attracts lots of families from our choirs.  Our Singing workshops are a VERY small part of the camp with around 50% of the lovely people attending coming along to sing. There’s so many other things on offer that if singing is not your ‘thing’ you’ll be in good company with others.

News from 2014 camp

Despite a thundery start on Friday we were blessed with gorgeous weather all weekend, and made fine use of our stream onsite to cool off and splash around with the kids. With circus skills and singing workshops to choose from on Saturday, there was never a dull moment. After a day in the great outdoors, our tummies welcomed our delicious home cooked supper. The ‘camps got talent’ on Saturday night had the whole barn singing, thanks to our enthusiastic performers and appreciative audience.  The evening drifted into the wee small hours whilst many sat around the campfire roasting marshmallows and sharing stories and songs – magical. On Sunday, the aerial circus rig and the zip wire up at the assault course had many of us feeling as though we were flying, with some great new skills learned. I, for one, felt very brave after my ‘upside-down’ experience under the expert guidance of Maddie, Sam and the circus team. We managed to say goodbye personally to many of you on Sunday and with a few reluctant leavers in our midst we left Mellow farm as we had found it on Friday – clean, peaceful and green. Thank you for all your efforts with getting everything back to nature.
The 5th annual Happy family camp (not that you need to be in a family to come) will be 17-19July 2015 with bookings taking place from Feb 2015 onwards. Feel free to let your friends know (but book your own place first).
Saturday night acoustic evening brings the whole camp together for supper and camps’ got talent.  Supper is included in the weekend cost with the massed campfire singing offering a gentle lullaby as the little ones drift off to sleep after a day in the great outdoors.
