The 7th Clarence Valley Camp Oven Festival will run over the June long weekend at Nymboida Camping and Canoeing in Nymboida NSW. The entertainment program officially starts on the afternoon of Friday the 10th and winds up with a farewell breakfast on the holiday Monday 13th June. For early-bird arrivals, a camp oven meal will be served along with some light entertainment on Thursday evening.
The festival features several hotly contested competitions focussed on campfire cooking, including the Breads, Scones and Dampers section, the Evening Meal section and even a Billy Boiling contest. The festival is also becoming more welcoming for younger families. Alongside three days of live music, bush poetry and street theatre, families can participate in hilarious games, craft activities, bush survival skills workshops and guided nature walks. Nymboida Camping and Canoeing board member Lyle Gilmore said improvements to the campground facilities, including a major kitchen upgrade in the Big Shed, have helped make the event an attractive entry-level camping experience for families.
