It's an official husky what?

For nearly a decade now, we have been running an official husky camp for our forum members. This is a chance for people to get to meet in person, and for many a holiday that is easier to do with the dogs. This is done in a way that both people and huskies can enjoy. It was started originally as a way to get around it being difficult to have a holiday with dogs, and make it easier to enjoy due to everyone around you also having dogs of their own. 

 

When is it?

Husky camp for 2022 will run from Friday 13th-20th May (Friday to Friday)

 

Where is it?

The Meadows (this is the field we are generally on, but just ask for where the husky group is staying)
Ty Mawr Holiday Park

Conwy
LL2 9HG

 

 

What about covid?

As much as I wish we had control over this, clearly we don't. I will be adding things related to this at a later point in time, but for now just bear in mind that we have no control (obviously) over what the government decide. We have been restricted on this for 2 years now, and there is nothing to say we wont be next year. Currently there are covid passports required for some events and for nightclubs. Last week that didnt exist. I suspect we will be fine by then, but just bear it in mind.

Obviously (or I certainly hope it is) if someone has covid, you would need to remove yourself from camp. If you have it before, you would be expected not to attend. I hope however that this is pretty obvious.

 

How do I book?

You can book through their website, which is here
https://www.parkdeanresorts.co.uk/location/wales/ty-mawr/

Ring this number to book for some reason the website is playing up there are caravans available 01745832079 (Let them know you want The Meadows Field if you are camping. )

LET ME KNOW ONCE YOU HAVE BOOKED, AND CAN ADD YOUR NAME TO THE LIST :) 

 

Is it just like a 'dog convention' type thing?

Far from it LOL. Whenever I explain to people what husky camp is, in the shortest amount of words possible, it tends to be this. We go for walks and stuff during the day, enjoy food together, and generally have a good drink at night. We're about as far from being some boring convention as you could possibly get LOL. 

 

Are there many of you go? Am I welcome? Can I bring my partner etc

We have had as many as 130 people at camp, and as little as 10. As you can see from that alone, the numbers can vary wildly. No need to ask if you are welcome at camp! Of course you are welcome! partners etc also welcome. All we ask is that you are responsible for the people that you bring (we are respected for being a good set of people, who are clean and tidy at camp, and don't cause trouble),  adhere to camp rules, and generally don't give the site a bad name. 

 

What facilities are there?

  • Electric hook up
  • Static caravan hire or camping
  • Shower and toilet blocks
  • Eating places on and around camp 
  • Swimming pool
  • Play area for the kids if you have any 
  • Wifi on site

 

Where do you walk? What do you do?

Just to give you a very brief idea of the kinds of things we do, based on years gone by. Some of which we do each year (of course not all).

  • Beach walk
  • Alyn Waters walk
  • Talacre point walk
  • Llandudno walk along the front
  • Aber falls
  • Newborough Forest - Anglesea
  • Pensarn beach
  • Conwy Castle / Conwy walk
  • Sun Set walk
  • Secure offload where all the dogs can be set free to let off some energy
  • Meal over at the local restaurant 
  • BBQs done by Barry (small charge to cover costs between us)
  • Breakfasts done by Dunc & Andy (small charge to cover costs between us)
  • Camp fire and drinks at night
  • Adult style pass the parcel (Yes, this really happens, and it hilarious!)

 

Added a few pics here for people who haven't been before, to give you an idea. And also a video of the offlead, which is always fun

Just tried to book a caravan at Ty Mawr and have been told that there's no availability for pet friendly accommodation. Best I can find is 3 nights from Friday 13th. Don't know if anyone else has had any luck.

Booked and paid! Very happy camper here. We can’t wait to see everyone. It is going to blow my dogs minds!.

Lucy will be Lucy, Ares had become the gentle but mad giant and then there is........ Khaos. He will speak his mind and likes to sing. If you put a can of beer down, if he can reach, it is his. Unattended cups of tea will be disposed of, coffee is safe. The lovable dumbass will steal your hearts & your beer.

Speaking of which, I better start stockpiling.

i hope all the dogs remember each other, Lucy’s love/hate relationship with Sabre, Koda leading Ares astray, Darwin and Ares as best mates, Lucy and Simba (oops), a wrestle with Chester for Ares and so many more great moments to revisit.

Unless we win the lottery it is highly unlikely that we will be able to make it... at the moment the estimated for the tunnel with 3 dogs is...wait for it.... € 875,-  this compared with about € 480,- in the past  not including vet costs for the doggies....
