Our Paws in Tents camps are all about providing an inclusive, accepting and relaxing environment, where young people can enjoy spending time in nature with their dog, family with the support and acceptance of the other customers, volunteers and staff.
Camps have a very loose structure. Each day we do 1 craft activity and 1 canine assisted activity/ game with the dogs and have a campfire in the evening (weather permitting). Outside of those, the camp is unstructured, with families deciding what activities they wish to do and how much they engage with the group.
On site there is a lovely playground and we bring a small selection of sport equipment (football, foam soft ball bat & ball etc.) and outdoor activity sets (mini beast hunt, kite flying etc.) and card/board games (UNO, yes/no game etc.) all of which you can either play as a family or with other camp families. We also ask each family to bring a game, craft or activity to share with the group.
Our evening camp fires are a lovely opportunity to wind down and socialise with other campers. Weather permitting we aim to host a campfire every evening. If it's heavily raining and we can't light the fire we will still have a social gathering, just without the actual fire. Around the campfire we will sing some songs, play with glow sticks, toast marshmallows, chat and play games.
