Following on from a very successful camp in 2015, this year the camp is being held near Burnley in picturesque Lancashire countryside over looking the Pendle and Bouldsworth hills. Veterans of the 2014 Summer Camp will be pleased to hear we are opting for indoor accommodation this year – Complete with real beds and central heating!

The timetable of activities is still being drawn-up but as with the 2014 camp there be plenty of outdoor recreation, hiking, socialising as well as lots of political discussion, and training.

Transport should pose no problem – Nelson and Colne train stations are just over 2 miles away and Burnley is 4 miles from the camp. We’re looking into the practicalities of organising a coach. Contact your branch to see about travelling as a group.

The camp will cost £25(unwaged) or £45(waged) and this includes everything. We have tried to make the camp as cheap as possible but please get in contact if cost looks like an issue for you. This years camp is running for three nights, comrades are very welcome to stay all three nights and we hope most will! However if circumstances mean you can’t make it till Saturday morning or would rather leave on Sunday night we have left arrangements to allow flexibility.

Payment is open on the links below to reserve a place now or want more information fill in the contact form (below) or contact:
