Our Castaway programme means you can make the most of being Castaway on Northey Island... Activities and Stalls are decided nearer the time so here's a snapshot of what you can expect.

Sample Castaway Programme

Friday 
Entry to the campsite is subject to tide times.
Arrivals to the campsite must be within the set times to be able to gain access due to the tides. 
Food and drink will be available in the bar area from tbc pm.
 
Saturday
Campers arriving on Saturday morning at times subject to tides.
 
No cars will be allowed across the Causeway after stated times as we want you to experience the island as a true Castaway!
 
There will be a number of stalls and activities going on throughout the day and evening, including walks, talks, displays and fun activities in the afternoon. 
 
Then kick back, relax and enjoy a summer's evening with your Castaway family enjoying music in the bar area to keep you entertained. 
 
Sunday
Have breakfast before packing and heading home. The site will be closed and all campers are asked to leave before the tide comes in.
 
Activities and locations will be listed on our Castaway board on the lawn, so make sure you take a look and plan your day...
