Free and low cost accommodation scheme in Shropshire

Camp that also helps disadvantaged groups

Free and low cost accommodation scheme at Long Mynd Adventure Camp in Shropshire

The Long Mynd Adventure Camp is a registered charity offering camping and bunkhouse accommodation for young people at low cost and, sometimes, free of charge.

In the 1950's, policeman Bill Williams and his wife gave holidays to boys from Wolverhampton, to introduce them to country life. With other volunteers, Bill then organised a successful series of summer Camps. In 1978 the Camp found a permanent woodland site in the beautiful Shropshire hills, with space for 60 campers in tents and 36 in bunkhouses. It's a traditional experience, which visitors love.

We now let the Camp - still largely run by volunteers - to supervised welfare, social and educational groups, including Scouts, Guides and DOE. That income, with donations, maintains and develops our facilities. Through our Bill Williams Fund, it also lets us help disadvantaged groups who would otherwise be unable to visit the Camp. We can support accommodation, transport and catering costs and are very happy to discuss any such situations with group leaders.

The Camp is located about two miles off the A49, 20 miles south of Shrewsbury and 10 miles north of Ludlow.

Church Stretton is 3 miles away, with shopping and medical facilities.
