I don't have a car, can I still come to camp?

Yes! The closest train station to our camp venue is Port Talbot Parkway Train Station.

After 1st July we will refund half the full amount (except £100 deposit). After 24th July (4 weeks before camp) there will be no refunds. Unless cancellation is due to a medical reason in which we will need a DR's note and in that case if camp is fully booked and we are able to fill the spot to another camper within 72hrs of cancellation then a part-refund may be possible.
