Fun at Campmates
A BIG Welcome from Campmates
We have always created our holidays around specific arrival days (normally a Monday & Thursday apart from May Half Term) and this so that everyone gets that first day of your holiday feeling. It also gives us the chance to invite all new arrivals to a fun and informal Welcome Meeting where you get to meet the team, learn about our facilities and find about what's happening during your holiday.
Night 1 - Movie Night & Campfire
Straight after dinner the children (and parents of course) are invited to the "Den" to watch a fun family movie, so bring your popcorn or sweets and relax. Half way through the movie and weather permitting, we'll light the campfire and invite the parents and older children to come and join us for a get to know your Campmates evening.
Day 2 - Crabbing & Beach Day
You've probably heard that at Campmates we love crabbing and at Lepe we have an amazing river just full of them. On the other side of the road, we have the beach and on a warm sunny day, we often pop over to the beach for swim or paddle. Just remember to bring beach shoes, a pack lunch, towels and enough spare bacon for the crabs, they love it.
Night 2 - Campmates Bingo & Quiz Night
Starting around 7.30pm, everyone is invited to our fun Bingo and Quiz night. We supply the cards and dabbers, so all you need to do is turn up with a drink and join us for a fun evening.
Day 3 - Riverside Picnic in the New Forest
Only a 5 minute drive from our campsite is a pretty little river/stream nestled in a scenic corner of the New Forest where we spend a lovely few hours having fun in the shallow river and enjoying a pack lunch in a pretty field. Occasionally we are joined by wild ponies looking for a drink and this really does create an exciting atmosphere but we always keep our distance.
Night 3 - Campmates Silent Disco
Introduced in 2021, we are so excited to be hosting our Silent Disco's once again and everyone is invited so get your dancing shoes and glow sticks out and come and have some fun in silence....haha!!
Day 4 - Lymington Outdoor Pool & Inflatables
The famous town of Lymington is synonymous with our Sailing greats and is a beautiful coast town in the New Forest. Only a 15-20 minute drive from the Campsite, this is a fun day with slightly old children (10+) where parents and children can challenge themselves on the Inflatable Assault Course or try Kayaking and Paddle Board. Wetsuits are available to hire and there is a covered poolside area and kiosk for spectators. Prices are approximate £15 for 90 minutes and we tell you how to book this at the Welcome Meeting.
