When you’re packing, imagine five days of glorious sunshine and five days of rain… and then pack for both. We’re talking wellies and sun-cream; umbrellas and sunglasses; raincoats and shorts. Below are a few items you might want to pack:
There is a freezer available to refreeze ice-packs for cool bags or ice boxes (but not to freeze your food). Look for the signs. There are no fridge facilities on the campsite. There is also no where to safely plug in camping fridges so please don't bring these along.
A meal pass means you can simply collect your meals in a takeaway box. At registration, you will be told where to pick them up from.
Forum does not have a cash machine on-site, so bring appropriate funds for food, visits to the Forum Bookshop and an offering for international student ministry. There is a cash machine inside the Weston Rhyn village store.
We’ll provide showers, toilets, washing-up sinks and fresh water taps at various places. Each Regional Village will have space to gather, so bring your deck chair. Often CUs plan together to share tents, camping supplies, and catering.
Top tip: please bring your own reusable water bottle to fill up at taps or at meals throughout the week.
Here are a few useful things to pack:
If you are staying indoors with a meal pass, at registration you will find out where you can pick up your takeaway food from and will be given your room number.
We recommend you only do this option if you have friends or other members of your CU camping and choosing to self-cater. Work with other CU members who are camping and sort out a list of cooking equipment.
Don’t own a tent? You can hire tents, cooking equipment and more from ‘Farmer John’ – delivered straight to Forum.
Check Farmer John's website for information about availability and rates. To order, we recommend booking by phone or post: ‘Farmer John’ doesn’t really do emails!
Note: Forum delegates have used ‘Farmer John’ in the past, but UCCF cannot accept any responsibility for the service he offers.
We ask that you do not cook in your tents, but use the cooking tents provided in your regional camping zone.
Please do not bring disposable BBQ's on site. There will be a chance to have a BBQ with your region.
Please make sure you pack all the materials needed to clean all your cooking utensils thoroughly.
There is also no where to safely plug in camping fridges so please don't bring these along.
