Part of the 2018 FESTIVAL OF THE BAY

Put your screens away for the weekend and enjoy world class storytelling by the campfire, inspiring outdoor fun with nature art, foraging, walks in the woods, and bushcraft activities. A fantastic family weekend in the outdoors 
 

Bring a tent and set up camp for a few nights alongside the beautiful woodlands and coastline of the Bay, where you'll discover the natural wonders of the landscape with experts from the region and spend some fun quality time together as a family. 

This summer Morecambe Bay hosts a new WILD Weekend Family Camp, from 6 – 8 July, with loads of activities to really get hands-on with nature.

You'll be trying everything from authentic bush craft survival skills,  making fire and preparing a meal in the wild, to creating land artworks out of materials found at the camp. Foraging sessions and wildlife discovery missions will all be part of the fun. The Wild Weekend Camp will really waken your senses with the amazing nature found around Morecambe Bay.

On the Saturday evening you'll enjoy internationally acclaimed folk musician and storyteller Nick Hennessy around the campfire as he weaves spellbinding stories with beautiful music.

Tickets are on sale with a special early bird discount and kids GO FREE. Price includes up to 2 nights camping, food and drink (Sat/Sun only), and all activities and expert-led workshops.
