I’ve decided to camp! What do I need to know?
Your ticket includes the price of camping together with other people from your church in a tent or caravan.
When booking you will be asked how much space you require based on the size of your tent, caravan or campervan – please be honest! Selecting a large pitch size if you don’t need it will disadvantage other groups on site who could use the space.
Here are a few tips to get the most out of camping at the Festival:
- Check your tent before you arrive to make sure you’ve got all your poles and pegs and don’t forget to bring a mallet.
- As much we hope it doesn’t, it just might rain, so bring some waterproof bags to store your clothes and sleeping bags.
- Good footwear is key for camping. Flip flops are great for walking around site and for visits to the loo/showers. If the weather is bad, wellie boots are always helpful to have but if not a good pair of walking boots should work.
Essential Camping Items:
We’ve teamed up with IBEX camping, who will be our onsite camp shop for all those forgotten items. Offering a selection of camping items as well as tent hire and ready pitched tents! Check out the Catalyst page on their website for more information and offers.
It may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but camping together can be a unique and valuable way of building community within your churches. We really want you to get the most out of the experience as possible so we thought it may be helpful to compile a list of essential items for you to pack, to help you get the most of out your camping time.
