Some of the best times we have had as a company, are those times when our community gets together. We have been lucky enough to hold some Camps Outs in some of the most extraordinary places from the enormity of Italian Dolomites, to the breath taking majesty of the giant Redwoods of California. And when Tentsile throws a party (or festival), we throw it BIG!

Hundreds of people renting tents, bringing their own tents and borrowing tents, all gathering together in the trees to eat, drink and be merry. We have always made sure that there have been plenty of activities for all age groups, from night walks and star gazing, to expert lead lessons in tree climbing, SUP board yoga, to live music, swimming, games, and all kinds of other entertainment.

In order to ensure that all tastes and needs are catered for, have been lucky enough to have some of our favourite brands and chefs come and take care of all the food and drinks for us. Some of them have even pitched up with a complete lounging area for our guests to sit in comfy chairs around the fire.

We usually have to put on a gathering such as this on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, as we have an equal following in the EU and US, that would be sad to miss out if they couldn’t come. We’ve had a lot of fun and so have all of our lovely guests! And the bit that everyone likes best? Getting into their Tentsile Tree Tents at the end of a good long day, of course!

We wish all of life was a party in the forest, but when it is time for the party to end and for us all to pack up and go home, we know that there will only be another 11 months until we all meet again… somewhere in a forest, not too far away from home.
