2019 Tresaith Bwtcamp July 20-27 - Sold Out

I’m just coming from the US and have a 6 year old, so I have a few things to work out. But i could figure out within the next week if I’m able to commit or not.

Will there be another bwtcamp in sept??

Like I said last time I wouldn’t want to deprive anyone else of this incredible opportunity, but if it was to have spaces I would definitely fill one of them.

@katie-13 tentatively, yes, I’m hoping to run a bwtcamp in September, so that could be a further option for you.

@aderyn - Thanks for that question - I’ve added a line to the main Bwtcamp page to make it a bit clearer.

Bwtcamps are based in the south west, but we have people from all parts of Wales (and beyond) attending, so there is no problem with gogs (from the north) and hwntws (from the south) mixing and getting used to each other’s accents and funny words, and we as tutors are totally used to smoothing over the few bumps that are caused. I usually reckon that the goggiest gog and the hwntwest hwntw will be fully integrated (sounds painful!) by about Monday, because it’s mostly the most common words that are different, which means you hear them all the time, and get used to them almost immediately.


Thanks Iestyn, I am interested. Terry

I’m interested! How do i find out more

You can read more here, but Iestyn will announce in this thread when the booking is going to open, and I always give notice in the weekly newsletter as well.

I’ll be going to the Eisteddfod, so very keen to boost my Cymraeg ahead of that!


I am interested too

OK - This is looking like a popular bwtcamp!

I am going to open the booking page a week today - that’s Friday the 15th March at 21:00 hrs Wales time. The bookings will be on a first come first serve basis, and our May bwtcamp sold out in about 3 minutes, so you do need to be there on the dot at 9pm GMT.

Good luck!



Yikes! I’m scared I’m not going to find the right page, or get the time zone thing wrong!

Hoffen i ddod i’r boot camp

Fi! I’m interested!

Where will we find the booking page?

Hi Iestyn. What do you think the chances are of a Bwtcamp occurring in September are? I really wanted to go in July (assuming I got to book in time) but I have found out today that my niece’s graduation is on 24th July and I feel in my heart, as desperate as I am to join in my first bwtcamp, that it’s important I go to her graduation.


Oh, Clare! Fancy thinking that your daughter’s once-in-a-lifetime celebration of one of the biggest ahievements of her life is more important than a week long break in Tresaith that happens 3 or 4 times a year…

Oh hold on!

Of course you should go to her graduation, and wish her all the best from us as well! I’m hoping to run a Bwtcamp in Spetember, but I’ll also be announcing a date for June to test the waters as soon as July is full. June may be a reunion if there’s not enough interest from new bwtcampers, so don’t rely on it! September, though, is very likely to run, so please go to your daughter’s graduation without a moment’s regret!

(Aside, my parents and I decided not to bother with photographs at my graduation - mam took a couple with her little camera, and that should have been enough. Fortunately I had a change of heart and went and got photos, because mam’s ones were awful - she was gutted! And so relieved when my professional ones turned up. Don’t skimp on the experience or the memories - it really is once in a lifetime (for most people anyway)!

For @clare-s-simmons and everyone else. The booking page is here: https://bookwhen.com/ssiw

Tickets will automagically become available at 21:00 (9pm GMT) on Friday, but I think I’m correct to say that the time will be displayed in your time zone on the booking page.

Some people had problems logging in last time. You shouldn’t need to log in at all - ignore the ‘login’ at the top of the page, just click on the event as soon as it becomes available.

Thank you! I’m so keen to come! Fingers crossed

A quick reminder - booking opened at 9pm tonight. For those unlucky to miss out on a place, make sure you let me know on this thread as soon as you can after the bookings have filled so that I know who wants any places that might become available later.

Good luck everyone!
