” Ten days of camping, exiting classes and workshops, chivalrous tournaments, archery, three days of war, excellent company, three saunas, and that magical atmosphere of the Northern Summer nights… That’s what Cudgel Wars is all about. And oh dear… did I mention the Monkey Island? ”

The Site

The event is mainly a tent camp, but we provide also indoor sleeping for around 70 guests. There is also indoor space for a textile workshop, classes, and various crafts and hobbies. The site has drinkable tap water inside and proper toilets. There are showers in the saunas.

Unfortunately the site is a camping site, which can be challenging for people with reduced mobility. The toilet for disabled people is about 200 meters from the indoor sleeping and it is near the kitchen. 

Kavalahti Camping Site (Björnvikintie 109, 10230 Inkoon as), Inkoo, Finland. About an hour from Helsinki by car, and 90 minutes from Turku. There is also public transportation that comes rather close (bus on Route 51, train to Karjaa).

Meals

Three meals are served daily: generous breakfast, light lunch and a warm supper. We serve two feasts during the event, the first is a traditional feast on Tuesday and the second is open to everybody on the 2nd Friday. There are also two small kitchens for those who want to cook for themselves.

We will not be able to serve meals for everyone, due to the small kitchen, so please reserve early. The Tuesday Feast can be served for 120 people.

All meals are low lactose. While registering, you can select lactose free, gluten free or lacto-ovo-vegetarian meals. Unfortunately we cannot take into account any other allergies or special diets. Please consider that there is always a risk of contamination, because we don’t have a separate kitchen for the allergy foods.

  • The site is ”damp”, so enjoy mainly only mild alcohol beverages. Smoking is allowed only on the marked spots.
