Camping in North Wales with a Pet Rescue Charity
20 people attending
0 places left
Join us for a wonderful near-Summer weekend in North Wales in a campsite that funds a Pet Rescue centre! The area is great for sport climbing in the Dyserth, and Castle Inn quarries. The campsite is also a great location for some lowland or leisure walking, cycling and the beach.
Events over the weekend:
There will be at least three activities to choose from on Saturday! They are: Sport Climbing at Castle Inn Quarry, a walk led by Simon H, and a scramble led by Simon D.
On Sunday there will be Sport Climbing in the Dyserth Quarries, and perhaps a short walk.
A limited number of small caravans and campervans will be permitted. Please note, however, that it is a grass field and there is no EHU. Please let me know if you plan to bring a caravan/campervan so I can inform the campsite.
The facilities on the campsite are basic. I believe the loos are of the porta- variety, and there are two gas heated showers. The campsite do supply extras at additional cost, like your own personal shower tent (with USB-powered showers), WC tents, raised fire pits, and even hot tubs!
Pets are welcome, and they even have a dog day care centre!
Please send me a message if you're planning to share a pitch as our group booking is for a number of pitches. I'll otherwise assume everybody is in individual tents.

IMPORTANT! - Participation Statement
You MUST complete a Participation Statement, here, in addition to booking your event space before attending an OutdoorLads event. You only need to complete this Participation Statement once, not for each event you attend.
COVID-19 – IMPORTANT, Please read the following before you sign up to this event:
- Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms, even if they are extremely mild, or who lives or is in a support bubble with someone showing symptoms, is asked not to attend. This is in line with the government’s coronavirus advice.
- You must also immediately self-isolate and not attend the event if you or someone in your household or support bubble shows coronavirus symptoms or tests positive. You can find the NHS self-isolation guidance here.
- This event takes place after 21 June 2021, which is currently the earliest date by which the Government hopes that we will have entered Step 4 of the Roadmap out of lockdown. At step 4, the Government hopes to have removed all legal limits on social contact.
- It is possible that Step 4 takes place at a date later than 21 June 2021 and could affect this event. We will review the situation as things change and will advise members signed up to the event if there are changes necessary to ensure compliance with restrictions in place at the time of the event.
- If the event is unable to proceed sue to Covid-19 restrictions, a replacement date will be offered, or a full refund.
- We must all remember that COVID-19 remains a part of our lives. We are going to have to keep living our lives differently to keep ourselves and others safe. We must carry on with ‘hands, face, space’. Comply with the COVID-Secure measures that remain in place. Meet outdoors when we can and keep letting fresh air in. Get tested when needed. Get vaccinated when offered. If we all continue to play our part, we will be that bit closer to a future that is more familiar.
