Peace Camp looking for caravans: drop us a hint or an offer! Public, we need your help!

February 14, 2017

In 35 years many bits and pieces of the camp infrastructure have risen, fallen and risen again. One of the most characteristic parts of the Peace Camp infrastructure are probably the caravans, which keep on housing the arriving anti-nuclear activists. And we love these caravans, we love them to bits. Literally. Some of the vans are almost as old as the camp itself: and no matter how much love and carpentry you shower them with, eventually they retire themselves.

Well loved, but nothing stays young forever.  Help us to expand our collection of colorful caravans!

Currently, we are renewing many parts of the camp infrastructure and building many things totally new. And this is something we need YOUR help with! You are most welcome to join us in direct activities against the nuclear madness: but there are many other ways to help this struggle, too.

Thus: we are looking for caravans. While facing the need to demolish some of the most worn-out and well-loved caravans, we need to be able to offer new accommodation for both, visitors and residents.

Don’t worry, we’re not too picky: as long as there’s no mold, rot, termites and other not-that-easily-fixable problems, we’re more than happy to come and check every caravan available. With a little bit of carpentry and fixing you can practice small miracles. Outdated interiors and little toothmarks of time are nothing to be worrying about: do not hesitate to give us a ring or to drop an email about caravans you’ve got consuming space there in a garage, nesting at the back of your auntie’s garden, waiting to be replaced by that new and updated model your family has set eyes on.

We will take them for free or agree upon a suitable price: just contact us, and we’ll sort it from there. Help us to head towards the next phase of Peace Camping!

    Non of the caravans are anywhere near as old as the site incidentally! The oldest thing onsite is the bus nr the entrance but even that was only bought on in the 90s. The mangle however, predates it!
