Ayrshire Pride Camp 2017

This year Ayrshire LGBTQ are building on the success of last year’s Pride Camp Weekend, and plan to make it bigger and better!  Pride Camp 2017 takes place between Friday 28th April- Sunday 30th April.

You can join for the entirety of the event, or for just one night if thats what suits you best. If you would like to join in with our activities but staying overnight is not an option, then don’t worry, you are welcome to join as a day guest.

Location and cost

We will again be based at Sealshore Campsite in Kildonan at the South of the Isle of Arran. Please book your camping spot directly with the campsite here.

For those who would like to join the adventure but also like a bit of home comforts, the campsite sits directly beside the Kildonan Hotel. Rooms can be booked here.

Please note that Kildonan is located on the Southern tip of Arran. You will need a vehicle or use the public bus service to access the campsite, the bus from Brodick takes around 35 minutes and is every 2 hours. If you are bringing a vehicle, don’t forget to book the ferry in advance here

If you have space in your vehicle and don’t mind sharing please or you would like a lift, let us know in advance so that we can arrange a car share.

The full schedule of activities will be released in the week leading up to the event, but expect an evening beach campfire on the opening night, some outdoor activities on Saturday morning/ afternoon, BBQ Saturday evening, and nature walks Sunday morning before returning home Sunday evening.  Keep up to date with the schedule at the event Facebook page here.  

This year we have 3 funded places available. This funding covers ferry travel, campsite fees, and a small food allowance. If you would like to apply for one of these places then please get in touch.

Pride Camp is only 2 weeks away now so get yourself sorted for what will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of our 2017!
