Camping together

Everyone at Common Ground will camp in a village (about 100 people), made up of at least one Woodcraft Folk district and one international group. Between 3 and 5 villages will form a town (about 500 people). Camping together will bring new friendships and opportunities to live and educate together before, during and after Common Ground.

Some organisations will bring their own equipment, whilst others will need help with borrowing tents and equipment from the UK. Some organisations will need more financial solidarity to travel further distances and practical help with getting UK visas. These groups are referred to as ‘solidarity delegations’ here.

Solidarity delegations

  • Lots of IFM-SEI organisations booked for Common Ground in 2020 and formed partnerships with Woodcraft Folk districts. We hope that you will all be able to join us in 2022!
  • Please contact us if there are changes to your circumstances or the number of people in your delegation.

Woodcraft districts

  • Lots of Woodcraft Folk districts agreed to partnerships with IFM-SEI groups in 2020 and we hope these will carry through to 2022 for you to share activities and enrich the district’s experience of the camp.
  • Hosting a solidarity delegation will involve more financial and logistical support, as well as a potential family stay before or after the camp. Please download our guidance document below.
  • You do not have to have expertise in visas. We have visa guidance available soon as well as 1-2-1 advice. There is also some funding available – so don’t be too daunted by the prospect of raising money!
