The cost for five days is £125 (£120 early bird), this applies to any district or delegation from any Woodcraft Folk or IFM-SEI group.
Travelling from mainland Europe, ferries travel to Dover, Folkestone and Portsmouth and the Eurostar train arrives in London. There are several airports in London and the South East.
Many people there will be members of the Woodcraft Folk, but there will also be groups from across the world at the camp from our umbrella organisation IFM-SEI. You can find a list of IFM-SEI member organisations on their website.
If you are coming from another country, your host Woodcraft Folk district may have equipment they can lend you. If you are a Woodcraft district you may be able to apply for funding for new camping equipment. See the Fundraising page for tips. If you are a small or new Woodcraft Folk district you may be able to share equipment with a larger more established district within your village.
International friendship is a central idea of Woodcraft and by participating in, helping to build and contributing to Common Ground you’ll be a part of a really large community striving to make the world a better place.
These camps don’t happen in the UK very often — the last time Woodcraft Folk hosted an international camp was in 2011 — so this may be the best opportunity for children and adults to experience such a fantastic event.
