Wild(ish) Camping for Groups
This event is suitable for
· Friends and families
· Youth and uniformed groups, e.g. Guides, Scouts, Duke of Edinburgh
· Schools and colleges
· Other non-profit organisations
· Workplace teams
A unique opportunity for groups of up to 30 to camp overlooking the peaceful Ferry Lagoon - one of the nature reserve's most impressive lakes.
As part of this unique experience, your group will have sole access to the 'Discovery Zone' and its resources, allowing you to immerse yourselves in discovering the wildlife that calls the reserve home. Lake dipping, den building and bug hunting will keep your group entertained all day until it’s time to gather around the fire for dinner and marshmallows. For those with enough energy to stay up, Fen Drayton Lakes is a great spot for star-gazing. There also 10 miles of walking routes on and around the reserve and many more beyond.
The firepit with cooking grille means you needn't bother with your camping cooker, and the on-site dry compost loo means your group will be self-sufficient. Vehicle access to the site for dropping things off makes it easy to bring the essentials like food and water.
What you'll need to bring
· Your choice of accommodation and bedding - tents, tarps, hammocks etc
· Water for drinking, cooking and washing up
· Food and water - enough for your stay
· Cooking and eating kit, i.e. cooking pots, crockery, utensils, washing up bowl etc
· Insect repellent
What you don't need to bring
· Camping stoves
What you must not bring
· Chemical toilets
· Pond dipping nets (it’s important to only use ours)
