The Greatest Family Show on Earth... At A Castle Campsite By The Sea

Kids overview

Kids are king at Camp Bestival. There is an avalanche of activites for children of all ages; 2 to 62! A large section of the festival site is devoted to the little-uns with the Upper Kid's Garden on the lawn behind the castle particularly suited to giving them a bit of freedom to cavort and explore. Activities here include the likes of BigTopMania where you can learn a circus skill, a Bouncy Castle, bikes and go-carts, a separate Toddlers' Area and our pioneering Breastival Mother and Baby Chill Out plus brand new for 2014 and the centre for all our Circus Spectaculars: The Greatest Tent On Earth! The Lower Kids Garden, meanwhile, is packed full of entertainment for slightly older children. This year you'll find the Insect CircusArt Town where paint and glitter was the order of the day, the Kids Catwalk, fairground rides, facepainting and a Soft Play Tent and Sandpit (for under 5's). And inter-mingled amoungst all this are plenty of food markets, cafes, bars, talks and music stages to ensure the slightly older clientele don't stand a chance of getting bored. Kids entertainment certainly isn't restricted to the Kids Gardens either, with fun and games spread throughout the site. You'll find performances by Horrible HistoriesMr Tumble and loads more happening on our Castle Stage and Big Top amongst all our live music acts, plus the Freesports Park and Rob da Bank's Music Club for older kids are over in the upper Magic Meadow near the campsites. The Dingly Dell is also a great place for families to take part in activities together. Take a stroll in the woodland arena and discover how to make fires in the wilderness, how to carve a wand or build a home for faries, how to identify the trees or even have a close encounter with some owls or falcons! In 2013 we even had a Soul Dome 360 Cinema in the Soul Park, Kids Yoga Workshops plus you could take your family on a Soul Journey through the elements. Lots more info coming soon on some of the new areas we've got in store for kids and families in 2014 including our brand new TeenArena, Oberon's Observatory, Caravanserai and the Travelling Barn.
