As the summer winds down and our thoughts turn towards autumnal adventures ahead, we’re looking back on a truly awesome season of Tentsile’s Camp Outs!
Last year’s inaugural Tree Tent events were record-breaking, but our camp outs in Germany and California this summer reached even greater heights. We saw more people hanging out in trees than ever before! Altogether over 350 people came to elevate their adventure - making these the largest tree camps in the world, (that we know of)!

First, we kicked off in July with our US Camp Out, under the majestic Californian redwoods at Camp Navarro. Then, we saw out the season in style at Zeltwiese Absberg, on the banks of the beautiful Brombachsee Reservoir!
Both sites gave our campers the chance to branch out and reconnect with nature in fun, new and exciting ways. For those who wanted an action-packed adventure weekend; tree climbing, SUP boarding, kayaking, hiking and even water biking were on offer! Our more laid-back guests could take up yoga or lounge on the lake in the brand new Tentsile Universe. Kids and adults alike got crafty with face paint, seed bombs and tree-mendous artwork. There really was something for everyone!

Delicious local food & drink, awesome music and, of course, incredible company topped it all off to make the camp outs a truly memorable occasion! But, don’t take our word for it! Check out the Tentsile Tribe’s take on it all…
What’s more, not only did our forest frolics help attendees get back to nature, they also gave back to nature! We already plant 18 trees for every Tree Tent purchased, so to up our game even further we decided that for every Camp Out Ticket sold we’d plant an extra 3 trees. This, along with the Reforestation Raffle at both events, meant that between them our guests helped plant an amazing 1,482 trees!
Needless to say, none of this would’ve been possible without the incredible people involved. Firstly, we’d like to thank: Zeltwiese Absberg & Camp Navarro for hosting an unforgettable experience in unbelievable locations; secondly, our sponsors and staff for all their hard work; finally, and most importantly, we’d like to thank our Camp Out attendees. We don’t get to hang out in the great outdoors with you as often as we’d like, but when the Tentsile Tribe comes together it really is something special. Watch this space for more Tree Tent Festivals in the future, and until then, see you in the trees!
