Outdoor Family Camping RSS
We're looking for volunteers to support our family camping trips through the summer!
There will be a Volunteer Weekend camping trip 24 – 25 April for volunteer training and camping gear preparation. We will host 2 or 3 Family Camping trips throughout the summer (depending on funding, and progress on the 'roadmap out of lockdown'. The first camping trip is scheduled for 31 May – 4 June, during the May half-term school holidays. All camping trips will be at Green Farm Kent (near Ashford). Food and travel expenses are available for volunteers.
If you would like to apply to volunteer with us, please fill in this form. Or to find out more, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are excited to launch our Outdoor Families 2021 programme!
Outdoor Families is a journey together, in community. We go on adventures, led by our children, through the greenery in our neighbourhoods. We explore our local parks and meet our local trees and resident foxes, birds and neighbours.
Our Wild Walks and Family Camping trips have been redesigned and tested over the last year to ensure we are still able to gather in nature safely, following the most up-to-date Coronavirus guidelines. We are preparing for family camping trips in the Easter, May Half Term and Summer school holidays, so we’ll be ready to go camping when national restrictions permit. Of course, we can’t predict the future and as such remain flexible and able to change our plans if necessary.
Last summer, as part of our favourite Outdoor Family Camping programme, we took five excited families away for four days to the beautiful woodlands behind Green Farm Kent. For all the families, it was their first time camping as a family, and for some of them their very first holiday together. Everyone took away some new skills, some great memories and a lot of new freckles...
