Amazing weekend. My 4 year old daughter loved every second! Xx
Really looking forward to my kids having the great experiences Camp Kindling has to offer.Such a brilliant idea.
I've been going to camp wildfire for years and find the team so nice! It's a fantastic experience and think it would work amazingly for kids! Will definitely take my baby when he's a little older 😀
Amazing weekend! Lovely family fun vibe and such a great opportunity for my little boy to try lots of different activities! The activities were really well organised and the leaders were so enthusiastic and engaged the kids really well. Can’t wait to go back next year!
Love all the events this company put on from Wildfire, to their Christmas parties and so excited for Camp Kindling!
What a great weekend Camp Kindling was!! The whole family had an awesome time.

I would highly recommend Camp Kindling to any and everyone. It was a fantastic festival experience and we are definitely going back next year, and every year!

Massive thanks to all the orgainsers and team behind creating this magical weekend. Depsite all the issues facing all festivals in a post - Covid world, the rate at which they provided solutions were amazing.

The atmosphere was great, all activities engaging and the Patrol Leaders were top notch every single moment.

Thank you and see you next year!
Cant wait to take our 6 kids on this. Been locked in doors to lo g and will be great for all of us to get the outdoor feeling. 😄
The most amazing weekend! Some much needed proper family time, we have loved every second of the weekend and can’t wait to do it all again next year! GO HAWKS!!!!
Such a great idea - my kids will love this! 🙌🏻
I’m so excited for this, probably more so than my kids!!! Camp wildfire has never failed to bring together the best community of people.
amazing weekend, everyone was great and such a wonderful family feeling to the whole thing. we will be back

i had an amazing experience at camp kindling! i’m fourteen years old so i was really happy that it wasn’t just stuff for little kids. there’s activities for a range of ages. it was also really nice with activities like axe throwing, they didn’t just let you throw the axe, they taught you how to do it first. my favourite thing to do was quad biking. i’m definitely doing it more than once next year!

We had such an amazing time at camp Kindling. All the activities we did were so much fun however, tree climbing and quad biking have to be the top two for me. As well as the incredible activities, there were also incredible people... the patrol leaders! They were so enthusiastic and made the place even better and I would love to be one in a few years. As a teenager I can safely say that Kindling is not just for younger kids as I had so much fun, I would definitely recommend!

Had the best time ever at the first ever Camp Kindling. It was a magical time for the kids, and we managed to do lots of activities including soap making, bread baking, African drumming and mask making. An experience unlike any other, and one we won’t forget in a hurry. Can’t wait to go next year.

I've been to lots of festivals in the past, however this is the first family one I've been too, on paper it sounded amazing in reality less so.The activities we did manage to do were a lot fun, (axe throwing, archery, nerf wars, quad biking, African drumming, giant slip and slide (don't look at the dirty water too closely though) although their booking system was a total disaster. They also made booking activities on the day overly complicated, sometimes you can't or don't want to book ahead if you've got young children, more drop in sessions would have be preferable.The staff working at the camp were great fun and really helpful.The facilities were hugely disappointing with only 3 food vans turning up on the first day supposedly due to Covid issues. I'm not entirely sure that was the case and they only made this clear once lots of parent started complain about the lack of food suitable for children. We ended up having to leave the site to buy food in and get a disposable BBQ. They did manage to get a couple of other vans in, however they ran out of over priced food very quickly, the £10 lasagne was inedible. Many of the toilets and sinks were disgusting, overflowing, blocked and very smelly, the showers weren't much better. I'm guessing because there were lots of kids they got extra yucky quickly.We were fortunate to pitch a tent is a less crowded spot, however it was still really noisy with huge generators sounding like a plans were going to take off.One of the highlights of the weekend was Gok Wans set, I would definitelydescribe Camp Kindling more of a camp than a festival, perhaps next year they would have ironed out lots of the issues from this year.

Myself and my niece and nephew had such an amazing time at Camp Kindling. It was the first one for kids, so yes a few things that they are going to improve on such as more vendors for food (Post - Covid pull outs), but massive credit to the team for organising a magical weekend. The activies were a lot, and big list to choose from. We will definitely be back next year. Highly recommend families attending, great bonding weekend filled with games, laughter joy and fun!! The team were amazing! Well done for putting on a wonderful festival!

We have had Literally the BEST weekend ever for both Adults and Kids! Thank you to the organisers, patrol leaders and every member of the #CampKindling team for creating a magical weekend for me and my family.Each activity according to my son was THE BEST EVER! From Tree Climbing to Mask Making, he loved it all! He even tried Quad Biking, plus we had a Rave every night!! We also made friends we hope to see every year.Please if you are thinking about attending Camp Kindling, dont think about it. DO IT. I promise you, you will not regret it. Amazing memories were created for us all. Even my husband got into it - another thing i was worried about.A few parents initally complained about the variety of food and other (festival expected) issues, but i cant really fault Camp Kindling. The rate of response to reach a solution for issues raised was amazing. Especially in a post - Covid world, things are not the same and we all are still trying to find a better way of working, but it just showed how much went into making sure that everyone had a good time.Thanks Camp Kindling and see you all next year ❤

What an amazing team of people every person who we came across were so helpful! The TEAM LEADERS were amazing and never let the energy drop at all! As this was the first year of course there were things that need tweaking and thanks to the still lingering Covid pings the catering was probably biggest affected. We LOVED it and it was worth the 6 hour journey❤️If you want to make fab memories in a safe family setting do LOADS of activities then do it next yearThe Squirrels 🐿 🐿🐿🐿

The most faceless and impenetrable organisation I have ever come across. They do not care that their activity booking system does not work. They do not respond to emails, their phoneline is an illusion with no answerphone option, after resorting to FB to communicate I was told the phonelines were really busy, a complete lie as they do not operate any. I asked them to ring me and they never have. I deeply regret purchasing tickets for this event.

I wish there was an option to leave zero stars. I booked my tickets for CK in May. From that point we experienced zero customer service and an inability to book anything from the 'schedule' - which is nothing like the sumptuous website promises. They clearly had serious tech issues and not enough office support to deal with bookings. No response to emails, no way to speak to anyone in person, no tech support. Tickets were finally (after 3 months!) added to our account the night before the event, by which time everything decent on the limited schedule was booked out with long waiting lists. At this point we have been offered a spa treatment- really? This was supposed to be our special summer break of fun with the kids and we have basically paid a premium to camp in a field with no access to any activities that we want to do....despite trying for months to sort out ther tech problems. Truly dreadful and an utter rip off. Even the smallest festivals sort out ticketing issues....#badcustomerservice #ripoff

Every year that I have returned from Camp Wildfire full of stories, my kids bemoaned the fact that it is only for adults. This year they get to experience the magic of Camp Kindling and they are SO excited! They have already planned the kind of activities they are interested in and I know they will be well looked after. The care and consideration that the team behind Camps Wildfire and Kindling put into their weekends goes well beyond the norm. They put so much thought into how to make the weekends actually work well for both visitors and the environment and I am always secure in the knowledge that amazing memories will be made. The customer service is excellent and they are quick to respond to queries and concerns, which is reassuring with tricky coeliac kids and for those with additional needs. Just book it!

Excellent team and organisation! As a patrol leader in the adult festival and full time teacher of 7 years, I'm so excited to see a family version! I've no doubt it'll be amazing!

Have had some of my best weekends at Camp Wildfire, and cannot wait to bring my nephews to Camp Kindling... the site is beautiful, activities are brilliant, such a positive energy in the community and from the team... and you always come away with new skills/hobbies. Couldn't recommend it more 🙂

Festivals are an essential part of the UK's economy and culture. The team at Camp Wildfire / Kindling goes the extra mile to bring people together and create communities - so important in 'the now times'. Their uncommon offer of team activities and traditional festival fun provide escapism and bonding for solo, group and now families of adventurers. Looking forward to them returning in 2021!

Really rude customer service. They actually went as far as to block me on Facebook and post rude things to me which I have took screen shots of merely because I had an opinion on the price. They got very touchy and started to get offensive..I wouldn't recommend if this is how they treat potential customers that are enquiring about price.

I've been waiting years to take my daughter to something like this! Going to Camp Wildfire (the adult version) for the past four years has been the absolute highlight of my summer so I've no doubt Camp Kindling will be just spectacular and so full of adventure. The team behind both CW and CK are wonderful, really reliable and kind folk, who have always taken such great care of us at CW. The setting is stunning, and there is always so much to do and learn. What a wonderful way to spend a weekend!
