AND the Walmadan Camp Guide Book now comes as a NEW and Special WE WON  Edition!!

To see the new wrap around section of this booklet click below:

Extra Special WE WON Edition

In this section you will find:

* Reflections and recounts from people involved at Camp Walmadan

* Photos and artworks by local people

* A song written by the Walmadan crew on the day of the win. The day of the win the Walmadan phone was ringing off the hook, so we spent most of the day sitting together on the floor of the media tent, taking phone calls and not quite knowing exactly how to feel or what to do. In between calls we put our bewildered energy into writing a song. It was performed at the celebration gigs with cup percussion.
