The camp fire, togetherness, the Nordic tipis, outdoor activities… Come and join us!

A line of Nordic tipis stand in a meadow; some others stand sheltered by the trees at the edge of the forest. It has been a chilly night and wisps of smoke are rising from the Nordic tipis’ chimneys. Some people are eating breakfast around the campfire. Steam is rising from the big coffee pot on the fire, filling the crisp air with the fragrance of freshly boiled coffee. Down by the lakeside, preparations are underway for the morning’s canoe trip.

The design and activities included in each Tentipi Camp can vary but what they all have in common is the perpetually burning campfire where people gather to sit and talk, the warm, spontaneous interaction that arises and the homely Nordic tipis from Tentipi which can be rented if you do not already own one but want to try one out.

Upcoming events

10–12 May 2019
ProAdventure Tentipi Camp
Close to Whittington, England
 

ProAdventure are pioneers of tipi camps in the UK, learning by experience and from their European friends. They gather once or twice a year with tipi owners across the country to socialise, play and swap ideas.

ProAdventure held the UK’s first Tentipi Camp in April 2015 on the banks of the River Dee. It was attended by over 60 people. There were bushcraft activities, canoeing and plenty of opportunities to talk around the campfire.

Their 2016 camp, held in the Welsh Borders, was just as popular with old friends and new enjoying the scenery and activities offered by their campsite hosts at Underhill Farm.

In 2017 two Tentipi Camps were arranged by ProAdventure. The first was at Carrog on the River Dee in May and the second at Bala Lake in September.

Their 2018 camp in May was also held at Carrog on the River Dee.

 


ProAdventure was the first in the UK to arrange a Tentipi Camp, and the success continues. They would love to invite you along if you have your own Tentipi® Nordic tipi, and if you are interested in trying a tent from Tentipi they have a few for hire but be quick as they go fast. Either way you will need to book (see below).

The ProAdventure Tentipi Camp 2019 is at a completely new venue, close to Whittington near the border’s market town of Oswestry.

Friday evening | Fika (that’s Swedish for coffee and cake).

Saturday morning | Canoeing, kayaking and paddleboarding. Bring your own equipment or hire a canoe when you book. Otherwise you can walk along the bank and enjoy the fun from the side. The area is quite flat so you could bring your bikes too.

Saturday afternoon/evening | After 3 pm the targets gets out and there will be some axe throwing.

At tea time ProAdventure will fire up their Uuni pizza oven and everyone can roll and make their own wood fired masterpiece.

In the evening there will probably be a talk, hopefully by an interesting, local person. The rest of the evening usually involves chatter round the campfire.

Sunday | Sharing of skills so if you carve spoons, make felt or wool or do any kind of craft that’s transportable and you could show a few people, then please bring it along.
