Camp Creative is a five-day creative arts school held annually in January. For our 2020 Camp we are printing our Camper’s Guide in full colour for the first time and opening up a limited selection of advertising spots for local businesses and organisations. 

We want to promote Bellingen Shire food and shopping, as supporting our community is a key part of our mission.

Our Audience 

Over 1,000 Campers stay in Bellingen over six days, seeking local accommodation, dining and shopping opportunities. The majority of Campers will live outside the Coffs Coast region, with 70% having travelled over 100 kilometres to attend the Camp.

Many Campers are long-time visitors to Bellingen, and encourage visits to their family and friends.

The Guide

The Camper’s Guide is distributed to the 1,000+ Campers when they register at the Camp on Sunday 12 January. It is their information source for all things relating to the Camp and Bellingen over the five days.

Inside it they find town and site maps, logistics info and Camp event guides. In 2020, it will also feature an eating and drinking guide, a Bellingen shopping guide and info on the many events run in the Bellingen Shire over the year.

The Guide will be provided as an A5 print brochure. It will also be available for download from the Camp Creative website.

In 2020 the Guide will include: 

  • Bellingen eating and drinking guide 
  • Bellingen shopping guide 
  • A feature on Bellingen Shire events 

Advertising opportunities include: 

  • Placements throughout the Guide 
  • Listing in eating & drinking directory 
  • Listing in shopping directory 

Over the years our Camper’s Guide has become a treasured souvenir that showcases the many wonderful experiences that the Camp offers each year. This is a perfect way to advertise your business or organisation to a committed and passionate audience.

However, in light of the ongoing pandemic situation, and after careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to postpone Camp Creative until 10-14 January 2022.
