Bŵtcamp Helpers

Would you be interested in helping to run a Bŵtcamp?

We’re looking at various options for running the bŵtcamps and one is with the assistance of someone who has been to Bŵtcamp before and knows how they run.

So -

Have you been to at least one Bŵtcamp before?
Are you confident that you can spend the week speaking nothing but Welsh?
Are you a person who is reasonably organised and likes to help others?

If that sounds like you, we’d like to hear from you. We have a proposal to put to you, but we’d need a few of you for it to work, so if you’re interested get in touch with @Deborah-SSi, @nia.llywelyn or @beca-brown

Gwych! I’d be delighted to be a bwtcamp-helper especially since I have raised the question on the forum.
My Cardi Welsh is, at best, conversational - but that has never stopped me up to now. :grin:
I’d also be happy to help with any of the planning or administration you think I could handle, especially at the Tresaith end. (BTW is Heledd still running the Tresaith canolfan and accommodation?)
Most of all, I"d love to sttend the bootcamps as a helper. Would I get to wear a badge? :laughing:
Diolch yn fawr am y cyfle

Wow, was this your idea? Impressive.
I haven’t been on the forum now for several years; I did the original 3 courses about 10 years ago. Did 2 bootcamps - the second was 12 people, 6 new learners each assigned to a mentor. I mentored one chap who progressed amazingly!
Some of the happiest memories of my life have been on a bootcamp.
Although I did the southern course with Iestyn, both my bootcamps were in the North with Aran. I owe everything to the Jones’ and Ap Daffydd’s for my ability to speak Welsh. They are special people.

No. This initiative comes from @Deborah-SSi, @nia.llywelyn and @beca-brown, but I am delighted to see it.
