Deadlines: 16 August 2019 (for camp running 20-23 September) and 18 October 2019 (for camp running 22-25 November)

Applications are now open for the Eden Project Community Camps in Cornwall in September and November 2019 with even more places available this year for people from Scotland.

The fully-funded camps include all return travel to Cornwall, accommodation at Eden Project site, delicious healthy food and all of the activities.

Working to connect and inspire people across the country Eden Project Communities, an initiative made possible by the National Lottery encourages people to take action in their communities. Community Camps are at the core of the programme, connecting community organisers and giving them unique shared experiences with a group of like-minded people from across the UK, to help form strong, lasting and supportive relationships.

Camps are specifically for people volunteering in their community or who have set up social enterprises or community business who are hoping to take their project further, looking for inspiration, or be part of a growing network of community activists.

Camp participants can look forward to three days of inspiring talks, workshops, creative activities and story
sharing with around 60 other community activists and organisers. The camps introduce people to the Eden
Project Communities network of over 1000 supportive, inspiring and creative people who are running a
wide variety of community projects. Creating connections and bonds, sharing ideas on how to engage and
empower people, to support each other in challenges and find that extra motivation.

Linsey Drever, a 2018 Community Camper from Shetland said: “I travelled from one end of the country to
the other to find myself in a room with 59 other like-minded individuals who just got it. ‘It’ being the need
for our communities to work together, to move things forward, to thrive and to grow. I met people there
that will be lifelong friends. After camp the amazing network just keeps giving with meetings online, BIG Lunch and regular updates. It’s such a privilege to have been part of it and to still experience the continuing
support is absolutely amazing.”
