Staying onsite:

Camp Clayton offers comfortable dormitory-style accommodation. Most rooms have their own bathrooms.

Because our Camps are usually very large:

  • we cannot offer single accommodation
  • we ask that all children sleep in the children’s cabins
  • we ask that all adults expect to share a room with other adults of a similar age

Bed Linen:  If you are staying in Camp Clayton accommodation you will need to provide the following:
*  a sheet to cover the mattress
(this is essential, even if you are bringing a sleeping bag)
*  either a sleeping bag or duvet and cover
*  pillows and pillow cases
*  towels (for the bathroom and the beach)
Bed linen, pillows and towels can be hired for a small fee from Camp Clayton. Towels are to be used in the accommodation only – you will need to bring your own beach towel.
You can indicate if you want to hire bed linen on the application form, or send an email to if you have already applied.

Children:  You will be allocated to a cabin/room at registration, and every effort will be made to place you with your friends as requested on the application form. All cabins/rooms for the under 18’s have their own bathroom.
No adults apart from Camp Parents and RSSC and Camp Clayton staff are allowed in the children’s quarters.

Adult Accommodation:  (Please note – there are no single rooms)
There is space on the application form where you can request to share with your spouse or friends.
Parents attending with children should expect to share a room with other adults, the children being accommodated with other children of their own age.

Wheelchair Access:  Most of the main areas are accessible by wheelchair.  There is one bedroom that has a bathroom suitable for users of wheelchairs.


Camp Clayton’s facilities include a camping area suitable for tents and camper-vans with access to showers and toilets.  There are a also a few separate areas for motor-homes and caravans needing electrical hookups.

Staying Off-site:

There are many camp-sites, motels and hotels along the north west coast for those wanting to stay off-site.

Please note that there is a small reduction of the fees for people staying off-site or camping, but that there are no self-catering options offered (see ‘Meals’).

Laundry Facilities:

There is a washing machine located in Parkdown, and a washing machine and tumble dryer in Bayside. Please bring your own detergent etc. Camp Clayton do not charge to use these facilities but ask that you give a donation.
