Booking essential

Join us for a wonderful night camping out under the stars at RSPB Saltholme.

5.00pm Saturday 27 – 9.00am Sunday 28 July

The Big Wild Sleep Out is a unique opportunity for families to spend a night out in the wild! Join us for a night camping under the stars and connect with nature as the nocturnal wildlife awakens on the reserve.

Take part in fun nature activities and join us for a guided twilight walk around the reserve. Glimpse inside the moth trap and discover some of our small winged creatures! We’ll also be gathering around the campfire for some campfire cooking, to share stories and of course toast marshmallows.

As the sunsets and the lights falls we'll crawl in our tents and drift off to sleep listening to the sounds of Saltholme's amazing wildlife.

Saltholme is a closed reserve overnight, so our Big Wild Sleepout really is a unique opportunity to spend time here when nobody else is around.

Book early to join us for this fantastic opportunity.
