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.
This is a family and youth orientated campsite run by volunteers, using farm fields to provide an affordable accommodation option for the three weeks of the Convention. It is situated on the outskirts of Keswick, about one mile from the main Convention meetings in Skiddaw Street, and less than half a mile from the Rawnsley Centre where many of the Childrens’ and Youth events are held. You need to bring your own tent or caravan and it is operated on a self-catering basis. Portaloos with basic washing facilities are provided on site and single-sex communal shower facilities are available at designated times in the nearby school. There are no dishwashing or laundry facilities on site. The campsite operates on a first come first served basis and bookings do tend to be brisk! Crosthwaite is a wonderful campsite with a mixture of regulars and newcomers. Evening cocoa and worship in the communal tent is a great favourite with all!
