Transform the back garden into a campsite of adventure!

Safe, fun and full of excitement! Discover the awesome benefits of garden camping with Easy Camp

Stars twinkling overhead, the crackle of an open fire and the thrill of something new. Garden camping is here to save summer. Safe, easy and cheap, it’s a brilliant way to enjoy the great outdoors and spend time together. All that’s needed is a tent and a sense of adventure!

Top 5 benefits of garden camping

Fun for all the family
Kids will love sleeping in a tent in the garden and be just as excited as on a proper campsite; teenagers and parents will love the break from everyday life. Get that authentic campsite feel with bonfires and marshmallows, treasure hunts, rock painting, board games, family BBQs and even movie nights on a screen outside.

For a laidback experience, choose compact, easy to pitch tents like the Easy Camp Go or Amble ranges. These affordable tents will keep families comfy, but won’t take up too much ground space. 

Go tents sleep between 2 to 5 people. The smaller sizes make for brilliant bedrooms, while the larger tents have extra living space and a canopy for a shady spot outside.

Amble tents sleep 2 to 4 people. The 2-man pop-up Fireball 200 is great for teenagers and is as easy to pitch as it gets - just unzip the carry bag and watch it spring into shape. For a more unique experience, the Bolide 400 offers a tipi style that the kids will love. Add a string of lights for an extra cosy atmosphere.

Chance to switch off and relax
Fresh air, quality time together and a break from technology are tonics for the soul.  So create a cosy den under canvas, say goodbye to screen time (for a little while, at least) and make the most of this chance to chill out. Maximise relaxation with inflatable sofas, lazy hammocks or padded loungers, then kick back and let worries fade away.

At night, get snug as a bug on deep filled flocks, or go for the ease and convenience of self-inflating mats (SIMs). Every epic camping adventure needs a trusty sleeping bag, so treat kids to their very own junior bags that come in eye-catching colours and designs. For parents, the Easy Camp Moon and Moon Double offer duvet-style comfort.

Change of scenery
Families might be surprised at how much of a holiday feeling they get from simply pitching a tent in the garden. Suddenly there’s a new and completely different space to explore. By adding comfy cushions, ambient lighting and some cheery bunting, it’s easy to create an inviting haven everyone will want to enjoy. Dimmer lanterns are a good choice, offering a brighter light for evening drinks and games as well as a nightlight at bedtime.

Learn new skills
Teaching teenagers to build the perfect campfire, introducing kids to astronomy, or going on a bug hunt with younger children. Garden camping is the perfect time to learn new skills together. Get prepared beforehand with guides to stargazing, and insect or bird identification. These are often free online.    

Safe, cheap and convenient
Cosy camping on a budget, with no driving, no packing and no extra expenses. Garden camping is the ultimate affordable, safe and eco-conscious holiday. This is important to holiday-makers. A recent survey shows that budget and climate are essential factors when choosing a summer vacation, with 53% of Europeans choosing budget and 47% selecting climate.  Garden camping combines the two like nothing else.

“Camping is a unique way to spend time with the kids and to get a break from the rat race. We believe that new adventures await just outside the door and even the backyard can be transformed to a campsite.”  Kirsten Mathiasen, Product Manager Easy Camp tents.
