Rewild Your Family at Morecambe Bay’s Wild Weekend

Families exploring nature on Morecambe Bay – Morecambe Bay Partnership

This summer Morecambe Bay hosts a new Wild Weekend Family Camp. Bring a tent and set up home for a few nights alongside the beautiful woodlands and coastline of Morecambe Bay. Discover the natural wonders of the landscape with experts from the region and spend some fun quality time together as a family.

From a peaceful base in the heart of the Arnside and Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the weekend takes place from 6 – 8 July. It promises to be small, relaxed, friendly and inspiring with a range of outdoors activities specially organised to get all generations hands-on with nature.

Participants can try their hand at everything from authentic bush craft survival skills making fire and preparing a meal in the wild, to creating land artworks out of materials found at the camp. Foraging sessions and wildlife discovery missions will all be on offer. The Wild Weekend Camp is aiming to wake up your senses and highlight the amazing nature found around Morecambe Bay to be celebrated and cherished.

On the Saturday evening families will get the chance to hear internationally acclaimed folk musician and storyteller Nick Hennessy around the campfire as he weaves spellbinding stories with beautiful music.

Tickets are on sale now with a special early bird discount until 31st May. Price includes up to 2 nights camping, food and drink (Sat/Sun only), and all activities and expert-led workshops.
