Knit Aid

Knit Aid's Glamp & Knit Retreat

Escape the stresses of everyday life (and the election) by joining Knit Aid for a glamping and knitting weekend away in the beautiful British countryside.

Sleep in a fully fitted-out canvas bell tent or yurt, knit to your heart’s content, dine under the night sky, toast marshmallows on the communal camp fire and wake up to stunning views. All in the surrounds of 650 acres of countryside at BillyCan Camping in West Sussex.

The weekend includes talks by Knit Aid, including a guest speaker from The Worldwide Tribe, skill-share workshops, and plenty of time to relax, knit and enjoy great company. All while doing your bit for the refugee crisis.

So switch off your phone, get out your knit (or crochet) sticks and join us for our Glamp & Knit Retreat this summer.

100% of profits go towards the work we do with and for refugees.

Friday 9th – Sunday 11th June 2017

Prices start from £100 per person for a 2-night stay, including a Friday night welcome dinner, a breakfast hamper, cosy beds and hot showers.

A limited number of entire tents and yurts are available to book for you and your friends. Contact us for group bookings.

Add a knit kit to your ticket

Knit an exclusive Knit Aid pattern over the weekend – for yourself or for a refugee. Your kit will include:

  • 1 pair of exclusive Knit Aid 8mm needles

  • 1 ball of 100% wool yarn

  • Knitting pattern
