Booking essential

Join us and sleep out at RSPB Dungeness. Come and pitch your tent and enjoy an evening of activities and a night under the stars! Explore the reserve after hours and meet the wide range of wildlife that lives here. Hunt for newts under the logs and glow worms in the bushes. Sit around our campfire toasting marshmallows, drinking hot chocolate and swapping stories. Please see our website or talk to a member of staff at the reserve for all the details of this event and how to get involved.

We'll provide:

•An exclusive camping event on our wonderful Dungeness reserve and a friendly team to get you settled and help you find our fantastic wildlife.

•An exciting schedule of activities to keep you entertained throughout the event.

•A campfire, marshmallows and a hot chocolate before bedtime.

•Drinking water and toilets (no showers) will be available throughout the event. The toilets are a short, 10 minute walk from the campsite so please do bear this in mind before booking.

We will be camping in the Discovery Area. This area has had pitches cut into it especially for this event. It is important you tell us the correct size of your tent so we can allocate you to the right pitch size. We are unable to accommodate high numbers of large tents (6 man plus) so please do enquire about this before booking.
