CRAI Activity Park

CRAI Activity Park is situated in the former mining town of Newbridge in the South East Wales valleys which is famous for its picturesque views, brass bands and of course male voice choirs!

The Activity park is set in approximately seven acres of open countryside which looks over the Cilonydd mountain and is an ideal site for campers who wish to do their own thing or go out and about visiting local attractions.

There are currently plans to regenerate the site, including the construction of a large bunkhouse with other indoor facilities.


Toilet block with showers, campfire hardstanding with seating, chapel.  Room for 200 campers.


The lodge is situated at the top of the main camping field and houses the reception area, conference room, kitchen (fitted with stainless steel units), toilet & shower facility, and dormitories.

With a view overlooking the main camping field the conference room is ideal for holding leaders meetings, organizing events, and can form the central base for running your camp.

Sleeps 16 (8, 6, 2).
