Based upon our popular format, our Blowout weekend for 2024 has moved to the end of May Bank Holiday weekend rather than the first one to fit in around other events and large bookings.
As usual, you can book just the bits you want to build your own bespoke weekend OR you can save a few pounds and book the Full Package which includes 3 nights camping and a full programme of activities running from Friday night until Monday morning.

Each day looks like this:

Friday 24th May – BBQ and Movie Night

Aimed at groups who are camping, we provide a BBQ evening meal for all followed by an evening film show as it goes dark with a goody bag of popcorn, a drink and a voucher to claim an ice-cream or lolly at the interval.
(Please note, leaders wanting the BBQ will need to book a place for this as well as young people)

Saturday 25th May – Bibbys Grand Trading Post

This is a full day programme of challenges and bases for groups to work through throughout the day to earn “Bibbys Dollars”. Every group starts off with a set of dollars per person  and works away to undertake the challenges. Some require dollars to purchase materials or equipment and you receive further dollars for task completed correctly.

One of the ways to earn money will be by performing during our evening “Royal Variety Show” either as a group or an individual. Dollars awarded based upon audience feedback.

At the end of the day, prizes will be awarded to those who have earned the most dollars per person.

Sunday 26th May – Blowout 2022

Our traditional Blowout event with all our usual activities all day plus many more brought in specially for the day. A wristband also allows access to our evening LIVE entertainment in the courtyard that runs until around 10pm. We ask adults who are not undertaking activities to purchase an evening only wristband to allow access to the evening entertainment.

Monday 27th May – Water Activity Bolt-On

As it is just too busy to run the water activities during the Blowout, we offer groups the option of adding this to their programme for the Sunday.
You’ll be allocated one of 3 time slots for 2 hours on the water 9am-11am, Noon-2pm and 2:30pm-4:30pm

LeadersFor adults coming to support their young people, you don’t need to book the full package unless you are wanting to do all the activities.
However, for leaders, we would charge camp fees (Apart for those in ratio who camp for free), the BBQ and Cinema (£5) if they want to eat and the (£5) Blowout evening ticket to access all the entertainment.
