You will camp with your church group. We automatically allocate a modest amount of camping space to everyone who books into Ashburnham. A few weeks before the event, we get in touch with every Church Coordinator to let them know the total amount of camping space allocated to their church group, with a map of their group’s camping area. Your Church Coordinator has the slightly daunting task of planning out your church group’s site and will let you know where you can pitch your tent.

If you choose to serve at the event you will still camp with your church group.
If you have any additional needs or access issues, you can choose to camp in an accessible portion of the South Lawn, closer to a pathway and the main marquees. This does mean that you will not camp with your church group. Please tell us when you book in, in the question about additional needs. Speak to your Coordinator for more help.
Yes, as long as your Church Coordinator can accommodate you on your church plot. Unfortunately we cannot provide electrical hook ups. There will be sluice points next to the toilets blocks.
Yes, but you will not be permitted to drive it on and off site during the event.
