Get involved

We need your help to make this the best international camp we have ever had! Why not get involved? Everyone has something to offer. See below for different options.


In September – October 2021, we are getting our volunteer teams back together to see which skills are still needed. International volunteers are really welcome! Do you have skills in:


Volunteer Wellbeing

Gas engineering

Stage management

Drama and dance

Environment and Migration workshops

Camp Takedown

Consent Workshop Facilitation

Camp Democracy

Driving a van?

These and many other roles are on offer. All volunteers will be on duty on a rota basis, with clear times for relaxation and enjoying the camp. Please email if you are interested.

Hi, I’m Sophie and I work as a freelance theatre technician, doing a variety of jobs from set building to lighting design. At Common Ground, I’ll be helping to set up and run the stages. It’d be great to work with you!Hi, my name is Kitty. I work as a biomedical engineer, but I started off as a mechanical engineer. Here’s me at a previous Woodcraft event sporting my hand-made solar-powered propeller hat – very fashionable at the time. At Common Ground, I will be in the technical crew, working on generators, solar panels, sound, and video screenings. Come get hands-on with us!

Donate material

Do you coincidentally have a milk float going spare? Own a company which makes biodegradable craft materials? Work in an ice cream factory? The camp is vast, with many and varied uses for materials, spare tents, sporting equipment, musical instruments and technical equipment. If you think you could help us, please contact us at We would love to hear from you.

Donate your expertise

Perhaps you are a supporter of our work but cannot attend Common Ground. We would still love to hear from anyone with a specialism in law, insurance, health and safety, technology, public health, disability access or fire safety. Your expertise could help to make our our policies and procedures even better. Do contact for further information.
