Get Involved in The Great British Campout

Last updated on August 13th, 2020 at 10:25 am

If you’re like us, by now you’ll be having camping withdrawals and you’ll take any opportunity to pitch your tent and camp.

Well, there’s a great opportunity in store…

Over the May Bank Holiday weekend (8th-10th May 2020) is the Great British Campout for the NHS!

A camp-out for the NHS was held over Easter this year, and this time it’s even better with a Virtual Festival too, including games, quizzes, crafts, challenges and special guests.

The idea of this campout is to pitch your tent, bring out the camper van or even the fort in the living room & donate your “pitch fee” (£2, or higher if you wish) to the NHS via the Just Giving Page.

If you’re taking part, you’ll also want to join the Great British Campout for NHS Staff Facebook Group to see the lineup over the weekend & updates from other people who are joining in.

This is a brilliant chance to get out your camping gear and it’ll be great fun for adults & children.

If you’re planning to camp indoors, you can check out our How to Make an Indoor Camping Experience blog post.

We’d love to see how you’re getting involved this weekend, so why not tag us @planetcamping on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook?

Happy Camping!
