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 and other customers.
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.
We know that for some campers, staying on site for the duration of camp can be difficult. Fortunately, there are loads of wonderful things you can do and beautiful places to visit in the local area if you decide you'd like to go off site whether you want an hour away or to spend a full day off site.
We offer basic self service breakfast and lunch for campers. A toaster and kettle will be available but NO cooker or microwave.
Breakfast is self service and there will be available:
Lunch is self service and there will be available:
For dinner on Saturday evening, we will be going to the local chip shop and can order & collect a meal for anyone who wishes. This is available as an optional extra at an additional £5 per person (or £2.50 per child 'happy meal').
For all other dinners you are responsible for providing your own food. If you're travelling via public transport and therefore unable to bring your own food, we can provide you with a cold meal or kettle meal (eg cuppa soup, mug noodles or pasta) for each dinner for an additional fee. Please contact us directly if you need this.
Camp is held at Park Farm Camping in Dereham, Norfolk. This will be our 4th camp we've held at Park Farm, we keep returning to this same location as it is just the perfect site.
Park farm has a well maintained toilet block which includes an accessible bathroom including shower and family bathroom which also contains a baby change unit & shower. Laundry facilities are also available on site and a small trust shop.
Our caravan is currently under construction. We aim to have this completed and available for camp as this will contain a toilet frame, hoist and a changing table but cannot guarantee this will be available at this point as construction has been delayed due to Covid.
Our next camp is from the 22nd till the 27th of June for Pawsitive Squad members only.
The camp is open to non Pawsitive Squad members from 3pm on Friday the 24th till 3pm on Sunday the 26th of June.
