Gwersylla Tyrmawr Campsite

2024 Expedition Weekend

About

Come and join Swansea WEMS for our most exciting event of the year!

We will spend the weekend camping in the very heart of Wales, and receive training from the wonderful Dr David Lee, who you might recognise from our expedition medicine talk at the start of the year. It's a wonderful opportunity to get stuck in with both the medical and remote side of WEMS

The event will be held at Gwersylla Tymawr Campsite near Aberystwyth (SY23, 3JR). Ticket price will be £30 for paid WEMS members and £33 for non-members. Tickets are capped so will be available until 07/06/2024 OR until they sell out.

Ticket cost includes: BBQ on night 1, campsite fee, and donation to Western Beacons Mountain Rescue as part of the training costs

Not included in ticket price:

Breakfast and lunch- please bring your own 

Dinner at the Hafod Hotel on night 2: pre-order details will be sent closer to the time 

Travel arrangements to and from the campsite: please let a committee member know if you have trouble arranging travel and we will try and find a ride share

Full timetable to be released closer to the time, but expect camping, training, and some outdoor fun
