The Urdd Camp at Llangrannog was established in 1932 and since then has played a crucial part in Welsh culture. It is thought that over one and a half million children and young people have stayed at the Camp, either in tents on hay mattresses, in wooden chalets with only one tap, or by now in ensuite rooms with hot water.
This special place conjures up a vast array of memories for the Welsh - making friends for life, meeting partners, emptying the ‘jeriws’, listening to stories of the Black Nun, composing songs or taking part in various activities. Llangrannog certainly holds a dear place in the hearts of many people.
In this exhibition, through the medium of photographs from Urdd Gobaith Cymru’s archive, which have been digitised with the assistance of People’s Collection Wales, as well as photographs from the National Library’s collection, we will recreate some of that magic.
