Camp Elsewhere

Camp Elsewhere has been conceived as a temporary forest retreat for weekend adventures in the simplicity of slow living. It’s a natural space carved out of a sacred land, an ancient forest close to the sea, with routes to the beach through Wales most magical sand dunes. A national nature reserve rich with flora and fauna.

Camp Elsewhere’s focus is on creating a summer weekend escape that allows guests to be fulfilled by the simple pleasures of being surrounded by mother nature. A laid back forest beach camp offering communal activities, wellness, workshops, inspiring talks, nourishing meals, family activities, relaxation, camp fires and a great program of music.

Explore the magical surroundings, meet like minded souls, digitally disconnect (no signal or wi-fi) and reconnect with yourself, your family, your friends.

This weekend camp is limited to just 500 people.
