We can’t afford it - what should I do?
Have a look at the Fundraising page of the website for tips on fundraising or email for more help on making Common Ground affordable.

Who has to pay to come?
Unless you are attending as a lone participant, the price of camp will be paid by your district or delegation and each member will organise payment with them. Many districts will choose to fundraise to subsidise the cost passed on to group members.

Anyone under-5 as of the first day of camp (1st August 2020) can attend Common Ground for free (accompanied by a carer). Full-time carers for young people with specific additional needs may be able to attend for free – email to discuss this more.

Is travel included?
Travel is not included, your district or organisation may collectively set a cost for travel and include this in the cost passed on to members.

Who can come? Do I have to be a member to come to Common Ground?
All ages are welcome at Common Ground. You have to either be a member of Woodcraft Folk or another organisation coming as a delegation. This might be an IFM-SEI organisation or another organisation linked to a Woodcraft Folk group.

Do I have to go with a group?
If you are under-16 then you do have to come to Common Ground as part of a group, although this group can be very small. If you are over-16 you can book on as a lone participant, though where possible you should book as part of a larger group e.g. your district or delegation.

Are visitors allowed on camp?
Yes, on Saturday the 8th of August there will be an open day from 10:00 – 19:00, in which friends and family may visit Common Ground.
