Camping Villages

What are the Camping Villages and how do they work?

There are three villages at Unite and each Company/group will be allocated a village before arrival. The villages allow for Companies/groups of any size to socialise with one another and develop a sense of community for the weekend. At Unite each village is in competition with one another for the weekend so it is key that everyone gets involved!

Where will they be located?

Villages will be marked out on the campsite. They will be designated by colour (red, yellow or blue), so we encourage groups to bring clothing, flags, crafts and extras of that colour to get your village standing out. We want to see which village can decorate their village best!

Throughout the weekend there will be games and competitions in and between all three villages, so make sure you all join in and help your village become the winning one!

Who’s in charge?

Each village has two Village Leaders. They are young leaders in BB and their role is to make sure the guests are all having a great time and making the most of the activities on offer. They are the first port of call for anyone who needs some help or fancies a chat. They’re also there to have fun too!

How are village points won?

Each morning there will be a village check-in with the Village Leaders and each person who attends will gain points for their village. Also particular events throughout the weekend will give points to participants and those who win a competition. More information will be shared at the event!

What is the role of Company/group leaders at the event?

If you are a leader bringing young people to the event there is plenty for you to do. Your first main role is to get involved and enjoy the weekend, as there will be leader events on as well as the wider programme. You will camp with your Company/group in your village and although events on during the weekend are run and supervised by the Unite team, there is still a responsibility on each leader to oversee their young people.
