3 Principles Family Gathering 2018

As parents of young kids we know how hard it can be to participate in the wonderful array of 3 Principles events, so we wanted to create/initiate an event that our children would enjoy and would allow us to spend time with other 3P families in a beautiful, relaxed setting.

Our vision is to create a community steeped in 3P feeling where parents can enjoy quality time with their kids, as well as having time for themselves, and everyone contributes to a mix of planned and spontaneous activities including: talks, nature rambles & adventures, games & creative pursuits for kids, music, coaching exchanges.

Last year we camped at the magical Rydall Hall in the Lake District. (See our photo album on this page to a sense of what we got up to.) This year we are going to the Pomeroy Caravan and Campsite in the heart of the Peak District National Park. It’s a working dairy farm with beautiful views, petting area and shop plus walks and cycle ways on site.

We are doing this purely because we passionately believe that it’s something that would enhance the 3 Principles community so we don’t charge anything for the event. You can find more a price list on the campsite website but for example a family of 4 with 2 children over 3 years old with a car for the 4 nights costs £96. We will then work out if we need a kitty nearer the time to cover any costs relating to fire pits, communal tent pitches etc depending on the needs and the size of the group attending.

We’re starting the ball rolling, but our hope is that this event will be reflection of our collective talents and energies so if you have any ideas or ways you’d like to contribute please get in touch.

There is only space for up to 20 pitches so if you would like to join us please book now to avoid disappointment. The campsite only asks for a £25 deposit and you can pay the balance later.

How to book
If you would like to join us please book your pitch via the Pomeroy Caravan and Campsite website. Say you are in a tent and select the number of children and cars etc. Make sure you don’t say you have an awning or it doesn’t give you the right price.

Once you have put this in it will give you the option for the Large Tent Pitch or the Grass Field (which is the cheaper one without electric hook up) Select the Grass Field which is the one we are in and complete your order. When you book please say in the notes that you are with the 3 Principles Family Gathering and message me or contact me below to say you have booked so we know who is coming.

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to get in touch.
