You can still come to the Camp if you have not yet registered or paid.

Online registration has now closed but you can pay for entrance and meals on arrival.


Bring your contribution to a hothouse of creativity, a small self-governed society run by democratic camp meetings, a viable example of the kind of world we are trying to bring about. The Peace News Summer Camp helps build a radical movement for the future by building a living community today.

MAKING NONVIOLENT REVOLUTION is this year’s theme, with a whole-day workshop co-facilitated by renowned US activist George Lakey (see here). Other workshops include: What’s NOT being cut: Military Projects in the Age of Austerity; Chomsky’s politics; Occupy and the limits of consensus; Smash EDO; Inside prison; Cake-making … and much more.

We are camping in a family-friendly and renewably-powered way from 26 to 30 July 2012 in the beautiful grounds of Crabapple Community, near Shrewsbury in Shropshire.

Activities include: workshops and discussions, practical skills sessions, delicious vegan food cooked by Veggies of Nottingham, music, film, fun and participatory entertainment, a bar, campfires, and activities and facilities for kids and families.
