Stuart, that's a very kind offer, thank you very much. At the moment, we don't have any plans to add more Bootcamps - it's more about available Bootcamp leaders than locations - but if we do, we will definitely remember you, because I'm sure a mid-Wales alternative would be very welcome...:)

Meanwhile, bookings for 2013 are now open:

I've just booked for the July 27 - Aug 3 bootcamp! :D It'll be my first time in Wales in over 10 years. And my first ever bootcamp - looking forward to it!

Noswaith da, the offer is open-ended, location is one or other of the former YHA premises between Tregaron and Abergwesyn-------how 'wild' is that!------both now under management by an independent Trust. 3/4 days duration would be preferred given the location and other obligations of the Trust. May work for people at a slightly lower fluency level than the existing camps? By the way, has anyone read "Wild Wales'? I am finding this George Borrow classic to be the most useful "Dosbarth Cymraeg' I have come across. Rhoi'r trio iawn. Sjs

April 27th – May 4th 2013

June 22nd – 29th 2013

July 27th – August 3rd 2013 (this is the week prior to the Eisteddfod)

September 21st – 28th 2013

Feel free to show your interest in this thread, and ask questions.

BOOKING NOW OPEN: viewtopic.php?f=33&t=8411

The price will be £250 per person, with a minimum of 6 and maximum of 10 attendees.

Essential Bootcamp info for you to devour before you make your decision to come!
We won't be accepting anyone on Bootcamp who hasn't finished the SSiW introductory course, AND added vocab units. This will ensure a higher all-round standard, and a better experience for everyone. Even if people have done other courses, we'll still expect them to do SSiW introductory + vocab - advanced learners will fly through it, and it will help get everyone on the same page...

There is also the possibility of running a family Bootcamp from Bank Holiday Monday May 27th – Sun June 2nd 2013 (Half term), but logistics are proving hard to organise. It would be good to know how much interest there is in running such a bootcamp, and the age range of children who would attend. The same "Welsh only" rule will apply on the family bootcamp, and accepting that there will be an occasional lapse into English from the children, they must be able to spend a week with their parents only talking Welsh to them, and be happy in that environment.

I love running bootcamps and can’t wait to welcome old friends and new to Tresaith again!
I'm looking forward to much :dawnsio: , :lol: and :party: , and maybe a little :shock: but no :ing:!

Hello,
My cousin and I would love to attend one of your bootcamps. Unfortunately, as my cousin is a teacher, he is limited to the school holidays, and we cannot make the camp at the end of July.
Is there any chance of another camp being held at Easter or over the summer?

Hi Kempton!

If you follow the link I've provided below you will find all the dates for 2013 Bootcamps and the booking pages for each one, it will also say how many places left on each one! :D

Hope this helps you.

Hi Kempton,
no, unfortunately, we're not looking at adding any more dates in at Easter or Summer, however, should the Summer bootcamps fill up, and there is demand, we would then look at adding one in for the October half term. It's by no means definite, but may at least give you hope of attending one this year,
