Sussex campsite with yurts
Memorable parts? This is one of the best camps for children because it has got lots of activities and fun games. I would recommend Go Wild and Bushcraft because you learn how to make camp fires and shelters in the woods. We made a shelter out of branches and leaves and checked to see if it was waterproof. It was a success, I stayed dry! - Connie, age 9 Tips? Do a workshop, they're fun and then you get to practice your fire making skills back at your camp! Enjoy the relaxed check out...
