Camp in the garden & star gaze

Published by Graham Milton on

If you’re lucky enough to have a garden then why on earth don’t you camp in it?

If you’re a bit nervous about doing it or think it might be a bit uncomfortable then that’s precisely what adventure is all about! Give it a go, you can always come back inside.

Why not download the Star Gazing App and fall asleep looking at the stars.

Make sure you look at the weather and pick a night that looks clear and rain free!

What you need: A duvet, old bed sheets, a mug of coco, a mat to sleep on, maybe a tarpaulin to put over you. Working out what you need is part of the fun!
