30 September - 3 October

The 7th Clarence Valley Camp Oven Festival has been postponed to the spring long weekend 30th September to 3rd October 2022. hosted at the Nymboida Camping and Canoeing in Nymboida NSW, early-bird arrivals can grab a camp oven meal that will be served along with some light entertainment.

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.

dirtgirl – star of dirtgirlworld and Get Grubby TV seen daily on ABC Kids TV, will be joined by her best friends scrapboy and Costa the Garden Gnome to present a series of kid-friendly workshops called Flourish! – growing fire ready families.

While the big folk focus on the art of camp oven cooking, the dirtgirlworld crew dive into their grubby bucket to shape a day of heart led recovery and resilience building for young families. Flourish! is where games and nature scavenger hunts meet spoken word mashups and a pillowcase fight to explore how families can prepare their hearts, heads and hands for emergency events.

Festival-goers who have already booked are invited to move their camping reservation to the October long weekend or to the 2023 festival which will take place on the June long weekend next year. If neither of these dates suit, please contact the NC&C office on 02 6649 4155 to arrange a refund.
