I'd never camped in my life til I fell into guiding two years ago! My first camp was the Malvern Challenge and I loved it! I've since taken my guides on a unit camp and to Strategy (the "replacement" for Malvern"), both of which were fun, especially Strategy. I also went to Peak as staff by myself, which was terrifying but brilliant. For various reasons we don't camp as much as a unit as myself and GIC would like, and I found I enjoyed being there as staff without my own unit, so I was just working when I was on duty and then having down time when I was off duty. Anyway... After my experience at Peak I've decided that I definitely want to do it again, but the next Peak isn't til 2020! so I'm looking at options closer than that. Is a big camp every year doable? Or would every other year be better to manage and keep it something to get excited about? I don't have any qualifications etc to do a specialist role (I'm working on my ALQ and have my basic first aid certificate).. I'm looking at Charnwood at the moment, any others that I should think about? I'm based in South Wales but happy to travel. I don't drive so need to be able to get there by train, and need staff catering as I lack skills and equipment to feed myself at camp for a week and would struggle to get everything there even if I did. I Would love to go overseas but money is the major issue stopping me and also that I'm rubbish at languages.
