Something for everyone at the summer camp

Socialist Party summer camp

Socialist Party summer camp

Last year I went along to the Socialist Party summer camp. At the time I knew little about socialism, or even politics in general. I decided however that a summer camp would be a pretty laid-back sort of environment for finding out about socialist ideas, so I decided to go along.

Billy Mather, Southampton Socialist Party

I wasn't disappointed. As well as good discussions that people of all ages attended, it was a great opportunity to discuss ideas and questions I had about socialism and the Socialist Party itself on a one-to-one basis with people from all over the country and even some from around Europe.

Discussions were split up between subjects relevant to newer party members or people interested in socialist ideas in one marquee, and discussions on more topical and world issues in the other.

Whatever your level of interest or understanding of socialism, there's something for you to join in with and contribute to if you would like to.

On the last day of the summer camp I decided to join the Socialist Party and I later joined Socialist Students. A year on and I am still learning a lot.

As there's always more to learn I will be going back this year to join in some of the discussions and to catch up with party members and friends from around the country in beautiful Essex countryside.

This year's camp will take place from Friday 24 to Monday 27 August at 35 per adult, 12 per child and 90 for a family. Log cabins are also available.

Phone Jane James on 020 8988 8778 or email janejames@socialistparty.org.uk for more details.

To book your place now, please send a cheque deposit of 10 (payable to the Socialist Party) addressed to Socialist Party Summer Camp, PO Box 24697, London, E11 1YD.
