The Cost

We realise it can be hard for some people to get time off from work for the whole of Charnwood so we have come up with a flexible cost structure:

  • One off £2.50 registration fee – including children
  • 12 Hours stay – £5
  • 24 Hour stay – £10
  • Full Staff members – £40
  • Staff Catering (optional add on) – £65

Below are some examples of how the total cost is worked out.

Example 1: Full Staff Member plus Staff Catering

Staying for the full week, I would pay £42.50. I would add £65 for staff catering making the cost £107.50

Example 2: Part Time Staff Member (12 Hours)

I am only staying onsite during the day or have an overnight shift at camp for 12 hours and will be visiting twice. I would pay the registration fee once (£2.50) plus £5 for every visit. This would cost £12.50 in this example.

Example 3: Part Time Staff Member (24 Hours)

I would like to camp at Charnwood but I’m only able to do from Saturday through to Tuesday (3 Nights) as I have to work on Wednesday. I would pay the registration fee once (£2.50) plus £10 for every 24 hours. This would cost £32.50 in this example.
