If you’ve never been to Faith Camp before you’re in for a real treat! Below you will find a list of Frequently Asked Questions about Faith Camp which will hopefully help you find out more about it.
If you have any other questions send us a message using the contact details at the bottom of this page.
What is Faith Camp?
Faith Camp is a self catering event: You need to bring your own tent or caravan if you are staying on site unless you have made alternative accommodation arrangements. The site is arranged in units where you can either camp with friends or where you can make a whole load of new friends… unit life is one of the most exciting elements of being at Faith Camp.
Do I need to book in advance?
It is preferable that you book in advance as it is cheaper and you are more likely to be able to be placed on a unit with people you may know.
Do you offer group bookings?
Yes! We love the fact that many Churches attend Faith Camp as a group and experience the whole week together. When booking online, you have the option to create a group code which you can give to your friends or your Church so that you can all camp together on-site.
Can I pay in instalments?
Yes! When you check out using our Online Booking system you’ll find all the information you need about making instalment payments. Please note, you’ll need to pay in full before entry on-site.
Accommodation & what to bring
No tent? No worries!
Every year we recommend a number of local companies who will be able to hire tents and caravans off...You can even get them to put the tent up for you! For more information click here.
What do I need to pack?
Whilst we are not camping in a remote wilderness it is important to remember that you are still camping, so there are a few things you may want to make sure you pack:
- Sleeping bag
- Air bed, camp bed or roll mat
- Tent poles and tent pegs!
- Ice packs for your cool box
- Radio - so you can check out Faith Camp’s very own radio station
- Bible, notepad and pen!
Getting to Faith Camp & what happens when I arrive?
What’s the best way to get to site?
The Peterborough Arena is really easy to find, situated just off the A1(M). Click here for directions.
What do I do when I arrive?
You will be met at the gate by one of the welcome team who will book you in and tell you how to get to your unit. They will give you a event wristband which you must wear all week so everybody can see you’re allowed on site. Once you arrive at your unit you’ll be greeted by your unit host. They are your host for the entire week so please ask them any questions you have – they are there to help you.

Can I volunteer?
There are loads of ways you can get involved across the site. If you would like to help out in any way please start your online booking as usual and select the Volunteer option when asked what ticket you would like.

Tell us about any special needs
If you are a parent or carer of a child who needs extra care please contact us via emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01293 851543 to let us know. Each of our children and young people’s groups has a leader who coordinates care for those with special needs.
