The Big Canopy Campout – 2019 DATE TBA
The Big Canopy Campout is a global event, comprising of climbers, explorers, scientists, natural history film-makers and everyday people who love adventure, nature, climbing trees or just a good old reason to escape the everyday hussle. There will be a number of main events on different continents. From the great Bornean rainforests to the mighty Amazon jungle we will come together to celebrate and save these precious ecosystems. Here at Dernwood we are inviting you to come along and join in a unique opportunity to sling a hammock, tarp or tree tent anywhere in our 70 acres of ancient woodland. Pitches are limited and we ask that you leave no trace (no fires – you’re welcome to have a camp fire in the camping field) – choose ‘canopy campout’ pitch. All money raised will go to The World Land Trust.
What is this?
Each individual troop around the world will share images, videos and experiences on social media and on The Big Canopy Campout website. We will follow each group through the night and dawn and learn about the life and environment of each unique forest. Groups camping in the lower levels of the forest or on the forest floor are equally important and will share their experiences in the same way.
