DPDC Camping 2017 @ Wowo Campsite – Report!


This year’s camping took place at the at the beautiful and deaf-friendly, families only WOWO Campsite in Uckfield, East Sussex. There were a record 26 kids in total.

It’s a campsite entirely built around creating a special experience for families. DPDC had its own pitch reserved, with all tents circled around a big firepit, meaning we had our own private BSL space.

On Friday all the families set up their tents while the kids explored the wonderful campsite, which has its own woods, a pretty brook running through it and loads of opportunities for climbing, rope swinging and running around making for plenty of imaginary play! The roaring campfires every evening were a big treat for kids and parents alike.

On Saturday morning all the kids got together to celebrate a birthday and enjoyed ‘Sports Day’ themed games. After lunch, all the kids were enrolled in a 4-hour bushcraft workshop, where through a BSL interpreter they learnt survival skills such as how to find food, how to build a shelter, make a fire and find their way home! This was all made possible by a kind grant from the British Deaf Association. Thank you, BDA!
