Mid-Wales and The Borders Inaugural Bush Camp 2020

You are invited to come along to the Inaugural Mid-Wales and The Borders Bush Camp at Hafren Forest Bunk House. This is a fantastic site on the edge of the forest that gives us access to some great facilities in the area from canoeing on Llyn Clywedog, cycling the forest cycle routes and walking to the source of the River Severn in the Pumlumon hills.

Unfortunately, we have limited dates available to us this time around (in the future, we’ll have more choice). So, we can do a weekday gathering on the 14th/15th September or a weekend on the 23rd/24th October. You have a choice of camping, hammocking or using the bunkhouse. In either case we will have access to the toilets and showers of the bunkhouse; Sarah keeps these spotless.

Numbers will be limited this time around so first come first served. We will need a minimum of six people to make this viable however.

We will have a communal open fire, but you will be required to cook on your own stove (no additional open fires) to maintain social distancing. We will carry out a risk assessment and put in place whatever processes necessary following Welsh Government rules at the time. Obviously, if things change, we will have to adapt including cancellation if necessary.

Sarah does a fantastic cooked breakfast which you can book the evening before.

Pricing:

Camping - £6 per night per person including use of showers and toilets
Bunkhouse - £18 per night Mon-Thur inc; £20 per night Fri-Sun inc (includes all bedding)
Breakfast - £6

If you fancy coming along, cut and paste the list to your response and add your name to one or both sets of dates and your preference to camping or using the bunkhouse. We will probably only run the one with the most attendees but, if required, we have the option of running both.

So:

14th/15th September

John Smith Bunkhouse


23rd/24th October

Jane Brown Camping
Jack Black Bunkhouse

You get the idea

It sounds great!
Good luck everyone :)

* I can only commit to the weekend option, and even then, may have to cry off at short notice due to a growing project in work - but it is quite local so I can get along for a few hours if that's all I can manage.

It'll be good to get to know some local members.

An early bump for this.

We need to get more people to make this work guys and gals so if you know anyone that may be interested (from either side of the border or from however distant :)) give them a nudge.

If you fancy it but are unsure about the dates let me know so at least I know the level of interest for the future.

Also, if people think this is a long way to come for a couple of nights, there is opportunity to extend a night or two after the quoted dates.

Caveat: Mrs OLO due to give birth on 17 October so that could scupper this for me but for now I'm in.

@Broch ill give this a shout out on my Instagram too if thats OK? I have a few thousand like minded followers there. They're global but even if 1 or 2 are local and fancy it, it'll help.

Thanks Broch for the invite, would be good to see some old friends (pete) and shame I won't catch Mr Fenna. This is in my back garden and a magic spot. I know Sarah and Darren at the bunkhouse and they are brilliant.

I can only make the weekday session

Sarah is the Commodore of the sailing club so will keep you posted, but there is no day membership allowed to Clywedog reservoir currently so no canoeing if your not a member I'm afaid.
