Camp Bestival For Teens


This will be our second year as official Camp Bestival bloggers and we can not wait! Last year we took our Granddaughter who was eight and our eleven year old niece and we had an amazing time, this year will be all about the teens. We will be focusing on teenagers being introduced to their first festival, in a family environment where us 'oldies' can keep an eye on them at a distance without cramping their style. We all know that Camp Bestival is fantastic for the whole family, especially the under 12's but lots of people have asked me what it is like for older kids, so this year we will be showing you what this award winning family festival provides for families with teenagers. 



We will be taking three teenagers aged 14 and 16 and so far the acts that they are most looking forward to seeing on the main stage are Ella Henderson, Professor Green and Clean Bandit. They can't wait to check out The Den, an area for 13 - 17 year olds, curated by a small team of young festival producers. Here, the kids will find special guests from the Guardian Literary Institute, the best bits of Rob da Bank’s Music Club, film screenings, open mic sessions and there is even a 'Blogging - How to' hosted by Tilly Young, a 14 yr old Teen Vogue blogger. 

Last year the fantastically talented 'Beans On Toast' hosted a workshop with a group of teenagers who he named 'The Unicorns' and invited them all up on stage with him to perform a song they had written together. This was so good that it was one of the highlights of Camp Bestival  last year for us. 

The teens are also looking forward to the grub. Chunky Chips & Wicked Dips, Pazzo's Pizza, The DeadGood Burrito Co, The Fabulous Fishfinger Co and loads more. Yum!


Are you planning on attending a festival with teens this year? 
We just can't wait to see what Camp Bestival has in store for us this year.
