Camp Derwent – wildlife camping festival!

You heard it here first!

It’s time for our family annual camping festival! Join us on the August bank holiday for two days of wildlife fun.

This year we are going wild with Red Squirrels at the Derwent Reservoir; with woodland treasure trails, bug hunts, bats, birds, small mammal hunts and traps and storytelling around the campfire.

Please bring all your own camping gear, tent and food for the weekend.

Children 0-5 go free and then £25 per person (no concessions).

Either book for Friday 24th August or Saturday 25th August

You will receive more information and itinerary of your trip closer to the time. 

Please note this is a truly wild weekend and there are no showers available but there is running water and toilet facilities available. 

Activites are aimed at children from 5-11 years but all ages are welcome. 

There is a no refund policy that applies to Camp Derwent. We are sorry that no dogs, caravans or motor-homes are permitted at Camp Derwent.
