Summer Camp 2023

The YCL is excited to announce that our 2023 Summer Camp will be held in Leeds for the first time!

Our Summer Camp carries on the Communist tradition of the Kinder Scout Trespass and YCL legend Benny Rothman by giving young workers from across Britain the opportunity to come together for political education and to socialise and enjoy our natural heritage.

Leeds and Yorkshire have a proud history of working class struggle and we are excited to welcome comrades from across Britain to write a new chapter in that history.

This year’s Summer Camp promises to be the best yet, building on successful and growing annual camps since 2014.
The Camp will be held from the afternoon of Friday 28 July to Sunday afternoon, 30 July 2023.
As ever the Summer Camp is open to all members and friends of the YCL and the Communist Party (including non-members).

The full 2023 timetable and activities will be published shortly. The Camp is set to feature plenty of outdoor recreation, a hike, film showings and socialising as well as lots of political discussion and education. 

There will be no glamping for Britain’s Communist youth, the Camp will be under canvas but we have arranged a comfortable indoor setting for all meals, classes and socials (the British summer giving no guarantees!).

Transport shouldn’t be a problem, the campsite is only a stone’s throw from Leeds train station. Contact your local YCL branch to see about travelling as a group.

The Camp will cost £25 (unwaged) or £45 (waged) and this is all inclusive with full board.

We have tried to make the Camp as cheap as possible but please get in contact if cost looks like an issue for you.
Comrades are encouraged to stay for both nights, however if circumstances mean you can’t make it till later on or need to leave a bit earlier, we have made arrangements to allow flexibility.

The full timetable and more information will be published shortly.

To book online please select a payment option below, and fill in the contact form that will follow.

The year’s Camp is shaping up to be the best yet so make sure you are there and part of a new YCL tradition!
