Big Camp 2017

Come and join us for the Big Camp at Buscot - your one chance a year to camp by the River Thames at Buscot village. Please check our website for booking details in late May.

  • Booking essential

You'll camp in an idyllic spot by the Buscot Weir Pool, and while the family's enjoying '50 Things to do before you're 11 ¾' activities, or just playing games and relaxing, we'll take care of cooking supper.

As darkness falls we'll gather round the campfire to toast marshmallows and do some star gazing. In the morning, there'll be a bacon bap to greet you for breakfast, then more outdoor activities.
