Nicola D.Nicola D. ★★★★★ We attended the 2022 camp as newbies to both camping and the festival. We went as a family with 2 kids, aged 10 and 5. Hopefully this review will be useful to parents thinking of booking.Overall we had the most incredible weekend imaginable and cannot believe how well Camp Kindling lived up to the hype!Activities- wow - the staff were phenomenal in all activities. The creative writing lady Hannah was a favourite of the kids. Mindfulness was one of the best sessions and as a family we loved creating our group piece and forest bathing. Parkour was a favourite too, and I have to say, paper beading was the one thing we’ll be doing at home for months to come, I literally couldn’t drag the kids or myself away! I could go on all day about the quality and quantity of activities but honestly, everyone was just superb. Family members said that archery battles and rifle shooting were very good too. Yes, there was a wait for zorbing, but we waited and the kids loved it, no stress! There simply isn’t time to do everything!Accommodation- we booked boutique camping with a deluxe bell tent. There was a little mix up with our bedding and electricity, but when we told reception it was resolved within the hour and we just managed with the two double beds. The tent was clean, beautifully laid out and we each had a lovely welcome pack of toiletries and a towel waiting for us. There were fairy lights in the tent which made a lovely atmosphere, and lights outside. The field wasn’t as lush as they had hoped due to the drought, however no grass could have covered the large rocks all over the field - only negative there, and my youngest tripped over them constantly. I’ve never camped before and the toilets and showers were fine - we managed and any issues were dealt with swiftly.We were given a lovely welcome drink on arrival of Prosecco.Entertainment was fantastic. The patrol leaders spent all day every day running around to get the kids involved, they were just so involved and making the kids enjoy their time - our badger leader was brilliant with the kids and they loved him. There were high quality acts on the stages and the auditorium- my daughter fan girled so hard for Nick Cope! Kids DMCUK blew us away, when can we see them again?! Yolanda and the band jammers brought the energy and we loved the BeatBox collective and the other acts - something for literally everyone.Food - my 5yo is coeliac and the restrictions on cooking did make it a bit harder, only The Greedy Vegan catered for GF kids (thank you!) so found that tough. Some of the vendors needed to use fly food covers - if you want to charge £3 for a croissant then you need to make sure there aren’t flies sitting on them. Same as other reviews really, we just wanted some healthy food that wasn’t ultra processed at a reasonable price, and drinks less than £3.50 a can. On the plus side, I’ve never craved a salad before… This is down to the individual vendors though. There was indeed variety but maybe I’d have liked to see some food representing black heritage too, especially so close to London.Overall I cannot thank the team enough for the experience. The quality of the staff and the attention to detail are evident, and the sheer effort that every single person put in to make sure you have a great time is second to none. I’m still absolutely buzzing and I hope we can return next year.2023 update - we went back again and had just as much fun, maybe even more because we had encouraged family members to come along.The activities were all different and the kids just loved the forest running around taking part in the patrol games.The entertainment was better than the previous year for us, we partied hard!It’s such a good atmosphere with all the other families and everyone just there to have fun, we loved it.There was way more representation of black businesses and definitely better food options including gluten free.Only downside for me this year was too many influencers there for free taking up slots on popular activities.Viktoria U.Viktoria U. ★★★★★ An amazing and unique event in a beautiful setting filled with lots of fun activities for the whole family during the day and music/comedy during the night. Would recommend to any family looking for an adventure!MonikaMonika ★★★★★ I attended Camp Kindling with my 8-year-old son in August 23, and it was just the perfect playground for us! We enjoyed all of the activities we booked tremendously, from active pursuits like capture the flag to more meditative tasks like origami, and at night we enjoyed a bit of comedy alongside a good dance, with my son making a ton of friends for late night football in a safe environment. As somebody who does not drink I found this festival a breath of fresh air - there was a great, wholesome family environment with so much on offer. I especially loved the amazing DJs that kept the spirits so high! 🙂 We are returning again in 2024 and cannot wait for all the fun on offer.Stephanie Y.Stephanie Y. ★★★★★ Brilliant holiday, we had standard tickets which had the perfect balance of activities to chill out time, food was amazing. Patrol leaders are fantastic, just as a heads up make sure you bring soap or hand sanitisers for after the loosFern B.Fern B. ★★★★★ We had THE best time. We signed up on a whim and unfortunately due to some technical issues we really were starting to worry about the weekend. We aren’t seasoned campers, our kids are HARD work right now and due to a really intense work load for both my husband and I, leaving us absolutely exhausted, I just wasn’t sure it was the right thing for us in the end. I cried as we finished packing the car and set off I was so anxious.Oh my goodness, I had no idea what lay ahead. We had the most wonderful time. The kids could just be free, no telling them to be quiet or settle down or temper themselves for the convenience of others, it was one big melting pot of excited kids having a blast. We did fantastic activities we may not have otherwise tried and we had real- PROPER, unfiltered, undisturbed quality time to really connect with our kids in a way our busy lives has left little room for. We ate, danced and sung the weekend away with new friends, fantastic memories and we came straight home and rebooked. I highly recommend. Everyone was just the loveliest, friendliest bunch.Lynnette P.Lynnette P. ★★★★★ A brilliant festival that caters to children and grown ups alike. Amazing choice of activities, entertainment was enjoyable for all ages including the adults (without the kids even noticing). Great food and facilities too. And a spa! 👏🏻Karina B.Karina B. ★★★★★ My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at Camp Kindling (I think our smiles in the photo say it all!).There are so many positive things to say; from the activities, to the entertainment, the staff and even the other campers!The wide range of activities suited everyone in the family, from the kiddies all the way up to their Nanna. We all got to say that we tried something new.The selection of entertainment over the weekend was perfect; we danced, we laughed and we even squeezed a bit of learning in there too. Then not forgetting about the Patrols, what a brilliant idea, it really helped everyone get in the team spirit and the games were so much fun! My brother and my son even participated in the finale and helped the Stealthy Squirrels become the Camp Kindling Champions!One thing that particularly made my weekend was the staff, they were all so lovely and appeared to be thoroughly enjoying themselves as well. Both of my children have additional needs and the staff were always amazing with them!Then finally just the overall feel and ambience around Camp Kindling was so friendly, welcoming and inclusive, it is hard to explain but it felt like we were all part of the same community and everyone was just so happy to be there.So if you are 'umming and ahing' about going next year then I'd like to recommend you just do it, you will not be disappointed!Finally thank you to everyone at Camp Kindling for such an awesome weekend!Laura H.Laura H. ★★★★★ We absolutely love Camp Kindling!! As a family of four with 2 children aged 4 and 18 months there was something for everyone to enjoy. I am always amazed by the range of activities, and how much there is to see and do over the course of the weekend. The whole festival just has the most wonderful atmosphere, I feel so safe that my children can just run around and explore. All the festival goers are so friendly, and we always make the best friends whilst we are there.thelma E.thelma E. ★★★★★ Didn't know what to expect going for the first time, but my son loved it so much. Will be back next yearCharlotte W.Charlotte W. ★★★★★ This was our first experience of Camp Kindling and I can't believe we had not been sooner! We had the most amazing family weekend. Everything from arrival, to toilet / shower facilities, to activities were all well thought out and executed to the highest standard. We had the best weekend, spending time and trying something new together. We loved the raft building and my daughter could not get enough of the Patrol Games... Go Badgers!! We've told everyone we know about this magical place and we can't wait to go back.Mona C.Mona C. ★★★★★ It was magical and we were so lucky with the weather. A beautiful location and we loved that the focus was time spent creating memories with our little ones instead of being on our phones. There were plenty of free activities and even with the queues moved pretty swiftly. The credited activities were spot on for the age range & bee keeping was really insightful & fun. Food to buy on-site & evening entertainment are aplenty, from patrol games, dance music to the games room. The music was spot on. It was like reliving my 20s. There was so much on offer that we didn’t get a chance to enjoy it all. Also, the location was spot on, spacious so it didn’t feel overcrowded. We’re planning to upgrade our tent next year and hopefully the little one will be able to stay up for longer! Can’t wait! Thanks Camp Kindling! 🏕Kate C.Kate C. ★★★★★ The most fun you can have in one weekend with your kids!!js_loader
