Our Paws in Tents camps are all about providing an inclusive, accepting and relaxing environment, where young people can enjoy spending time in nature with their dog, family with the support and acceptance of the other customers, volunteers and staff.

Camps have a very loose structure. Each day we do 1 craft activity and 1 canine assisted activity/ game with the dogs and have a campfire in the evening (weather permitting). Outside of those, the camp is unstructured, with families deciding what activities they wish to do and how much they engage with the group. 

On site there is a lovely playground and we bring a small selection of sport equipment (football, foam soft ball bat & ball etc.) and outdoor activity sets (mini beast hunt, kite flying etc.) and card/board games (UNO, yes/no game etc.) all of which you can either play as a family or with other camp families. We also ask each family to bring a game, craft or activity to share with the group. 

Our evening camp fires are a lovely opportunity to wind down and socialise with other campers. Weather permitting we aim to host a campfire every evening. If it's heavily raining and we can't light the fire we will still have a social gathering, just without the actual fire. Around the campfire we will sing some songs, play with glow sticks, toast marshmallows, chat and play games.


We know that for some campers, staying on site for the duration of camp can be difficult. Fortunately,  there are loads of wonderful things you can do and beautiful places to visit in the local area if you decide you'd like to go off site whether you want an hour away or to spend a full day off site. 

  • Fishing - you can fish two miles down the road on the river Wensum or fish on the Norfolk coast around 30 minutes away. 
  • Beech, nature and Seaside towns - it takes around 50 minutes to drive to drive to Cromer or Great Yarmouth, Norfolk Coast AONB & the Blakeney national nature reserve. 
  • Animal attractions -Nearby there is Hunstanton’s Sea Life Sanctuary, Pensthorpe Nature Reserve and Gardens, and the Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens at Great Yarmouth. All of which are within driving distance of camp. 
  • Walks and Cycling - there are several footpaths, bridleways and cycleways around the campsite.

While we have decided this year to open camp up to non clients, it's important anyone signing up is aware that camps are very different now to the first 2 and more in line with our Paws in Tents 2021 structure which was thoroughly enjoyed by all clients, volunteers and staff. We will be providing limited entertainment, equipment and practical support. This is a budget holiday focusing on family time with the dogs, nature and acceptance and not focusing upon dog training. We WILL NOT be running any dog training/ assistance dog specific workshops.
