Event description
The UK's first camp for people of non-monogamous persuasions and their families. A long summer weekend of fun and activities.

About this Event

Poly Camp Community has been set up from people between the LGBTQIA+ and Poly/Non Monogamy communities of Facebook and other social networks.

Currently there seems to be no big events for the Poly and Ethically Non Monogamous community in the UK.

So, with the inspiration of Bicon UK, the Birmingham Bi Group's Bi Camp 2018, and PolyDay we decided that there should be a social event weekend for us. (And we thank them both for the help and inspiration)

Where will it be?

It will take place at Kinver Scout Camp and we will be using their dorm cabins and outdoor camping spaces. There is plenty of space in the site to camp.

We are aiming at a maximum attendance of 150. We will confirm the number of cabin spaces after a site visit.

For Poly Camp UK 2019 there is cabin accommodation which will be allocated based on need. They will be suitable for older people, and people with disabilities. (There are accessible facilities around the site). If you do have access needs for a cabin, please drop us a message and we will add you to the cabin list.

We also will be asking attendees to pay based on a 'pay what you can' scale, meaning that financial circumstances as well as health needs should not prevent people of all ages and backgrounds from coming to this event.

Payment costs are worked out per person, so if you are the unwaged partner or child of someone who is in the full price range then you can, if you wish, purchase the unwaged rate.

What will be happening?

There will be a loose schedule of activities including, bonfires, music and topic discussions, but the event is primarily focused on networking and promoting community for attendees.

During the run up to the event, we will have an attendees group where you can ask questions and find out more details as they happen.

Activities available will include:

  • Archery
  • Arts and Crafts
  • Bat Watch
  • Board Games
  • Bushcraft
  • Campfire Activities
  • Climbing and Abseiling
  • Massage
  • Stick Whittling
  • Storytelling
  • Wildlife Observation
  • Woodland Walks
  • Yoga
  • And many more

Poly Camp 2019 is meant as a family inclusive event. And as such, nothing we are running will have age limits. Though some events may not be suitable to all, but that is at your discretion.

There will be event throughout the day, and also events specifically made to be non-alcoholic.

We see this camp as a way to meet others into the ethical lifestyle in a casual, non 'scene' way.

Is the site accessible?

Some parts of Kinver are accessible. However, being a more natural feel of campsite, there are areas that are challenging.

The buildings are accessible, and there is sleeping accommodation with wheelchair accessible bathrooms.

Some of the organisers are themselves disabled, so this is of some importance to us.

Do I need to bring anything?

Yourself and your belongings, if you are camping you will need to bring your own camping supplies and if you are in the accessible rooms, you will need your own bedding. We are not supplying drinks, and you may wish to bring your own snacks. You may also want to bring an outfit for the party and games to share in the games room.
