This post is an AD for Camp Bestival.
When we planned our first ever festival experience, our little dude was our priority. We found ourselves googling “What is there for kids at Camp Bestival?” and reading every blog we could find about the family fun available at the UK’s favourite Family Festival.
Before Camp Bestival, our limited knowledge of festivals was gained from news features, of wet and muddy festival goers, or watching the Glastonbury headliners on TV. On our first experience we were lucky enough to attend with friends that had already been to Camp Bestival. So we had the advantage of their knowledge. But we are well aware that some families book tickets to attend without the bonus of having friends that are regular goers. So we hope this post can help shed some light on the fab activities for kids you can expect.
Each year as our little dude has grown, his involvement in the activities Camp Bestival has to offer for kids has grown too. He’s watched his favourite acts in the Big Top, made his own wands and swords from wood, helped build a giant wooden crocodile, play area, and pirate ship as well as discovered many hidden gems across the site.
The great thing about Camp Bestival is its versatility. Each year the festival is themed and the activities offered are linked to the theme. This year’s theme is Heroes vs Superheros, which promises an action packed weekend of heroic activities.
Camp Bestival activities run from Friday 26th July to Sunday 28th July. You can expect to enjoy a full on fun packed line up, with bonus meet and greets by kids favourites such as The Gruffalo (28th July) and Wallace and Gromit(27th July). Also swooping in for a super hero meet and greet are PJ Masks on the 26th.
The award winning ravers Big Fish Little Fish will be returning with some awesome family friendly DJ sets for all mini and fully grown ravers. This is always a highlight for us as we get to let our hair down and dance to all our clubbing favourites, whilst M shows off his moves and discovers “new” Old School tunes.
If you’re bringing under 5’s and worried they will be left out of the fun, have no fear. Soft play for under 5’s is offering ball pools, ride on cars, tunnels, play tents, inflatable balls, bouncy cows, as well as some fab workshops to get you moving and grooving.
For the crafty kids attending you can find many hands on activities that can provide hours of entertainment in Art Town. If you have a little explorer on your hands that would rather some imaginative play in the woods, we highly recommend the Dingly Dell.
Our best advice to get the most out of your day can be found here, but you can’t go wrong with a bag full of snacks and a bottle to refill at the many water taps on offer around the site.
If you’re a regular at Camp Bestival we would love to here the activities your kids love to enjoy there. Also if you are planning your first visit to Camp Bestival and have questions, get in touch!
