The summer has arrived and team CB are under starter’s orders ready to unleash, Camp Bestival, the greatest family Festi-holiday known to man at Lulworth Castle on Dorset’s stunning Jurassic Coast from August 1st – 4th. With a veritable smorgasbord of live acts, DJs, comedy, theatre & shows, attractions, activities, poets, authors, talks, hundreds of things for kids to do and glorious food, you’d already be spoilt for choice but now adding to our Outdoor Pursuits for kids of all ages we have In2actIon’s Experience Adventure, plus brand new Arena hostsSkylanders SWAP Force and The Surplus Supper Club joining us for Camp Bestival 2013.
Rob da Bank said, "Just over 2 weeks to go until we open the gates, it's hotter than the sun outside and we've got 3 brand new things to announce for Camp Bestival! If action and adventure is your thing then make sure your kids head to in2action's Experience Adventure programme where they can try out aeroballing, body zorbing and have a go at firing mini crossbows. Kids love them and so do we – SkyLanders are coming to Camp B with a new arena where you can be one of the first ever people to try out their new Skylander SWAP Force game. And, if your tummies are rumbling then make sure you book a table for The Surplus Supper Club for a festival feast like no other – see you there for a slap-up Sunday Roast!!"
We’re over the moon that In2action, an exciting, innovative company providing action packed activities all over the world in over 50 holiday centres, will be with us this year. At Camp BestivalIn2action will be running some super-exciting activities with their Experience Adventure programme! Have you tried trampolining, volleyball and basketball? Well, put them all together and you have the unique and exhilarating game of Aeroball, plus there will be Body Zorbing, which is exhausting fun for anyone aged 7 upwards. Climb into a huge inflatable ball and roll around, flip over, crash into each other and play a number of hilarious games. And you can test your hand/eye coordination shooting safe play plastic sucker darts at our customized targets, with Mini Crossbows & Junior Archery, or challenge your head for heights by tackling our 7 metre Climbing Wall. So make sure you come and join the fun!!
"The In2action team are really looking forward to being part of Camp Bestival in August. We hope we can help make this another memorable August at Lulworth Castle. We’re looking forward to seeing you all there." George Ross, In2action.
We're so excited that the mega BAFTA award winning Skylanders will be coming to Camp Bestival this summer! Hosting a new arena you can expect to be among the first people in the country to play Skylanders SWAP Force before it hits the shops in October!
Skylanders SWAP Force introduces a whole new way of playing with the introduction of character swapability, welcoming 16 new characters, whose top and bottom halves can be swapped, providing players with more than 250 unique character combinations! Amazing! This new arena will be the place to hang out for gaming fans and families that want to get involved with all sorts of Skylanders activity including Skylanders themed dress up, face painting and puzzles. Not to be missed!
Finally, for now, we're very pleased to announce we will be bringing you a fresh, new dining experience this year. FareShare South West and their team of award winning chefs will be hosting The Surplus Supper Club restaurant, serving luscious breakfasts, three course dinners, wine, fine cheeses and an unmissable Sunday roast, all on proper plates inside a funky Indian marquee. Is there anything more decadent then eating at a table with china, silverware and a good glass of bubby in a field with your wellies on?! We advise that you book a table for you and your group in advance as their restaurants are very popular!
We’re raring to go but keep an eye on www.campbestival.net and our Facebook and Twitter for more news coming soon!
