So about now, even though Christmas is coming, and that's lovely I get a bit down. Grey days, early nights, cold, wet, windy.
So a cheery email to remind me of Summer Fun is just what I needed! Huzzah for Camp Bestival! Having had a super time there this year (one rainy morning not withstanding) I'm looking forward to August 2015 - fun in the sun! A Holiday Camp Festival for all the family, Curated by the simply brilliant Rob Da Bank and his wife (and kids no doubt)
And next year, spurred on by the awesome fun we had getting muddy in the woods, the theme will be Camp Bestival GOES WILD!
Yes we will be getting down and dirty, back to nature, pagan and free in the fields and woods of Lulworth, come rain or shine! So now I just need to start planning my fancy dress! I have even started a Pinterest board.
Just have a read of the Press Release - Feel the excitement! Can I tempt you to join us? The perfect festival for children of all ages!

CAMP BESTIVAL’S ADVENT CALENDAR WONDER
Inspired by our love of getting out into the open air and running free, Team CB are extremely excited to announce a brilliant new theme that’s very close to all of our hearts. That’s right, we’re putting Mother Nature front and centre for 2015, as Camp Bestival Goes Wild!
Camp Bestival’s own wild man Rob da Bank says: “Calling all wild boys and wild girls…oh yes my wild friends and family, prepare to get down and dirty at Camp Bestival 2015 as we dump the technology and scramble into the woods for a back to nature escape from normality. We’ll have golden chances to bond with your kids in the mud kitchen, sleep under the stars with your mates and family, and take part in tons of wild activities. Release your inner wild thing and see you in July!”
We all love computers and game consoles but you can have too much of a good thing. As the amount of screen-time kids enjoy creeps ever upwards, the simple pleasures of the great outdoors, and the endless fun of running around under the sun is being left behind. So, we’re going all out at Camp Bestival, unleashing our burning passion for all things wild, and dedicating our four-day festi-holiday shenanigans to the happy and healthy joys of getting back to nature. From jumping about in your bare feet, creating wild art and making daisy chains, to wood carving, star gazing and way beyond, a wild imagination goes a long way in nature’s playground, and come 30th July to the 2nd August, Lulworth Castle is going to be the wildest place on earth!
Featuring a host of Camp Bestival’s favourite attractions including the legendary Bollywood, The Big Top, The Greatest Tent on Earth, Pig’s Big Ballroom, Art Town, Insect Circus, the Science Tent, Medieval Jousting, the Soul Park and more, there will be adventurous family fun across the board with music, theatre, shows, attractions, activities, poets, authors, talks and delicious, healthy food. The Camp Bestival crew have been scouring the globe looking for the wildest entertainment in existence, all for you. Reconnecting not just the kids, but all of us smart phone addicted adults too, with the good green earth and helping everyone discover the pure elation of untamed, outdoor fun is our mission. Weekend Camping, Camping Plus, Hospitality and Boutique tickets are on sale, so grab yours now and be there when Camp Bestival Goes Wild!
