Church2 The Christian Summer Festival Survival Guide

Summer’s here, the schools are out, and now that we’ve finally got all that sporting agony and ecstasy out the way, we can finally crack on with Summer Festival time. Whether you’re heading north, south, east or west, and whether this is your first or fortieth time, there are a few things to keep in mind…

Before you leave, check your camping equipment thoroughly


Setting up your camp can be tricky. Make sure you allocated jobs well


Remember that when you’re camping, you’ve got to let nature be boss

Make sure you pitch your tent somewhere easy to find

But expect to wake up every day feeling refreshed and ready to go
