Build Camp
A Roundhouse Frame Build

Level – Good level of fitness and strength
Cost – Free
Date – June 12th – 22nd 2018
Duration – 2 weeks
Venue – The Woodyard, Duchy Home Farm, Gloucestershire

Build Camp is a volunteers’ working holiday and training camp. It’s open to anyone regardless of ability or income. Help us build a reciprocal roundhouse timber frame to be used as an outdoor classroom, at a charitable organisation or school. We’ll be working as a team and spend some time developing your tools technique and greenwood building knowledge. Together we’ll continue refining the ultimate roundhouse design, our team-work, and outdoor living skills.

Many educational organisations are short of funds to develop outdoor classrooms for forest school or nature based learning and don’t have the space to host our Free-Build camp. Your volunteering means we can help these schools too by cutting an entire frame and doing a first assembly at the Woodyard. We’ll deliver and install it later in the year.

Catered evening meals will cost £90 / 2wks and this is also the deposit. Camping is included.

If you would like to be involved please email me including RELEVANT EXPERIENCE, AGE and a BIT ABOUT YOURSELF as we like to have a mixture of ability, gender and age.
