Enrolment is when you build your schedule for the event: choosing which activities, parties, talks and games you want to get involved in.

Enrolment for Elementary and Standard Weekend Ticket holders opens about 3 to 4 weeks before each event. Don't worry- we'll let you know when in advance and provide you with lots of information about how it all works.

Priority Enrolment for Dynamo Weekend Ticket holders opens about 1 week before standard enrolment- allowing priority choice of activities.

For summer 2023, Enrolment dates are as follows:

  • Priority Enrolment - Tue 18th Jul
  • Standard Enrolment - Wed 26th Jul

Priority Enrolment gives you 1 week of exclusive access to enrolment  ahead of everyone else.

This means you are guaranteed to get exactly the activities you want at the times you want them, and that you can ensure you get to do certain activities together with your other families, if you want.

Priority Enrolment is only available with Dynamo Weekend Tickets.

Your weekend will be absolutely jam-packed as it is, but if you want to make it even more special, you can purchase extra credits in addition to your ticket. 5 credits are £8.

You can purchase extra credits in advance or once enrolment has opened.


You can upgrade your ticket type at any time before the event by paying the difference in price.

You can purchase an upgrade here.


Up to you! You can choose to book all your activities together as a family, or split up for some or all of them! Although, Juniors, Infants & Babies must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

We cannot guarantee you will be able to do activities with anyone outside of your family. If you really want to guarantee you can do certain activities together, we would recommend booking a Dynamo Ticket.

Yes. Parents & kids should book the same type of tickets (e.g. all Standard or all Dynamo).

Juniors, Infants & Babies must have a supervising adult with them at all activities.

If you need to upgrade your current tickets, you can purchase an upgrade here.


That's exactly what it is!

We are massive geeks about structure and how the right amount of it can unleash wild creativity and create unimagined opportunities for discovery. We pioneered, and have spent years refining, our unique setup so you can pack more adventuring and partying into your weekend at Camp Kindling than most people can manage in a year! 

If that sounds lame then Camp Kindling probably isn't for you.

Absolutely. Each individual adult can bring a maximum of 3 kids. We also offer childcare options including a nanny service.

We have set up a Facebook Group specifically for Solo Parents which you can find here.


It seems like there isn't because we're always shouting about all the amazing things you can do; but you are in completely in control of your own schedule!

If you want to have a nap in the woods, or relax in a hot tub with a G&T then go for it!

No it's not, but we welcome and cater for those that choose to live a sober lifestyle.

There are a number of bars & cafes stocking a selection of our favourite Teas, Coffees, Alcohol Free Beer & Cider, Alcohol Free Wines and Alcohol Free Cocktails.


We've found the perfect size for Camp Kindling which is just busy enough to create an electric atmosphere, but small enough that you can get to know everyone and it doesn't feel crowded at all.

That's why tickets are so limited.

There is a competitive side to Camp Kindling, and some people do get quite into it, but it is not mandatory to get involved and you won't feel left out if you're not a competitive person.

No, you can attend without getting involved in any highly physical activities if you want.

We have lots of arts & crafts, science & engineering, bushcraft & survival and health & well-being activities that are not physically intensive.


Yes! We offer interest & fee free payment plans so you can split the cost of your bookings monthly.

To explore the payment options, please head to the bookings page. Add some items to your basket and we will do all of the calculations for you!

To pay for your booking monthly, simply continue to the payment stage of the checkout process and choose the option to pay monthly. 

Unfortunately not. 

We work hard to ensure that tickets are great value for money for those attending, so are unable to discount them any further. 


You do not need their details at the time of booking. If you have booked a ticket or other item for someone else you will need to transfer it to their account for them to use.

Tickets include a choice of activities, all live music and DJs, Comedy, Talks, Films, Poetry and Games.

To maintain the special atmosphere of our events, tickets are extremely limited!

Tickets and accommodation always sell out quickly, so ensure you are registered and booked as early as possible.

You can register and book for events on the bookings page.

For most people we recommend the Standard Ticket. This is the most popular ticket type and it provides an ideal balance between amount of activities and cost.

If you want to go all out and make your experience extra special then the Dynamo Ticket is for you. This comes with priority enrolment so you can guarantee your dream schedule.

If you are conscious of cost and don't mind a slightly restricted amount of activities then the Elementary ticket is for you. You will still have the same access to music, games, talks and food & drink.

New for 2023, we are launching a trial of a new ticket type. It's called the Basic Ticket and is designed to be an affordable and flexible way to access the magic of Camp Kindling.

With the Basic Ticket, your family gains access to everything Camp Kindling has to offer, and can add as many or as few activity credits as you want.

The Basic Ticket is ideal for your family if you want to spend your time relaxing in the forest, enjoying the drop-in activities, Patrol Games and entertainment, and occasionally add extra activities on a pay-as-you-go basis.


You can upgrade your ticket type at any time before the event by paying the difference in price.

Please contact us if you wish to arrange this.

Spa Sessions - The Spa is set in an idyllic clearing in the forest and is for adults only. The perfect place to relax and rejuvenate between adventures. The Spa area has wood-fired hot tubs, sauna, showers and wellness treatments available to purchase. Treat yourself to a wellness treatment from one of our expert therapists. Treatments take place in The Spa area and are available at an additional cost. Choose your treatment type and time during enrolment. Please note that treatments and spa access are not included in the price of any tickets.

You can add a Spa Session or Treatment to your booking on the bookings page.

No, we do not allow adults to book without an accompanying child/children/family.

Basic Tickets

Unfortunately not. Parents, carers and kids should book the same type of ticket (e.g. all Standard or all Dynamo). Juniors, Infants and Babies must have a supervising adult with them on all activities.

Yes. You can purchase activity credits at any time. These are available in 5-credit increments on our website. Please note that if you intend to purchase more than 45 credits per Basic Ticket it will be more cost-effective for you to purchase an Elementary Ticket, which comes with 45 credits included.

Yes! Activity credits will be available to purchase from our Info points, however we would recommend that you purchase your credits before enrolment to ensure you're able to secure your chosen activities.

Unless you're within your 7-day cooling off period, you will not be able to downgrade your existing ticket to a Basic Ticket.

We have plenty of free Drop-In activities available at Camp to accommodate the number of people attending. During peak times there are occasional queues for these activities, but they move quickly.

The Basic Ticket gives you access to all of the free Drop-In activities at Camp, plus all Patrol Games, music, comedy, talks and stories. Visit our Activity Credits page to learn more about the range of Drop-In activities available.


Please check the our Accommodation page for a range of accommodation options including Camping, Boutique Camping and Local Hotels.


Your weekend will be absolutely jam-packed as it is, but if you want to make it even more special, you can purchase extra credits in addition to your ticket. 5 credits are £8.

If you want the ultimate Camp Kindling experience then we recommend booking a Dynamo Ticket which includes Unlimited Activities of any type and priority enrolment! Our expert concierges will help curate your perfect schedule of activities, guaranteeing availability in any session and taking care of any requests on your behalf.

All activities are beginner-level as Camp Kindling is about trying new things.

All of our instructors are experts though, so if you have experience in a given activity, you can ask them to help push you further.


By night we like to party!

Before we started Camp Kindling we ran award winning festivals, a club in London Bridge and have toured the world playing in bands. 

We have very eclectic taste and usually include Indie, Folk, Swing, Blues, Brass Bands, Funk & Soul, Disco, House, Breakbeat, Drum & Bass, Garage, Hip Hop and generally energetic, entertaining and inspiring bands & DJs we discover.

Check out the music page to see the musicians we work with.

Kids entertainment will begin at 8pm each evening, immediately following the Patrol Games.

Live music will follow from 9pm until 11pm.

At 11pm, the Discotheque will close and adult-only entertainment will continue in the Clubhouse until 2am.

Yes, if you prefer to bring your own food and drink then you can.

Each person may bring a maximum of 6 cans of beer, cider, wine or pre-mixed spirits. No glass or plastic bottles will be permitted. Any additional alcohol you attempt to bring in will be confiscated.

You can bring as much food as you like, but please only bring what you are sure you will actually eat. Most people tend to end up eating food from the amazing traders even if they brought their own, so please be conscious of not wasting food. If you need to cook your own food, you can do so in the Camp Kitchen Area in General Camping.

We have a selection of the UK's most delicious street food traders with food available to purchase throughout the weekend.

Purchasing drinks from the bars helps us continue running and improving Camp Kindling; without the bar revenue, we wouldn't exist!


Once you have booked your ticket you can choose a patrol for your family to join.

There are 4 patrols: Badgers, Hawks, Foxes and Squirrels.

Your patrol is like a huge family that will welcome you to Camp Kindling and help you to get to know new people.

Over the weekend you can win patrol points which can help your patrol win The Cup. You can win these for excellence, kindness, humour or just by bribing the right people!

You can choose how much you wish to be involved in your patrol and the competitive side: most people tend to find it quite funny and it's all very good natured.

Heroic Hawks: Gentle, but determined; strong and valiant. Very able with good mental agility: the first to catch the worm.

Bonkers Badgers: Fun, cheeky, ‘a bit loopy’, passionate, resilient and fun-seeking. Less active through the day; really comes to life at night.

Stealthy Squirrels: Cheeky, entertaining, sociable and energetic – loves having fun with others and making the most of the day.

Fearless Foxes: Intelligent, creative and cunning; can be a bit of a trickster. Prefers night time but has been spotted playing in the daylight too.



You can wear whatever you want: most people tend to wear something in the colour of their patrol, but there's no pressure to.

Official Camp Kindling uniform - Dressing up isn't essential and we don't care what you wear or how you wear it. If you like the Camp Kindling look and want to get into it then we have everything you need at our store. events!

Some items sell out fast so it's worth getting in early.
