Wild Camper

CAMPSITE
CHARACTERS

Campsites are full of the most interesting, friendly and helpful people,
no matter where you are in the world.

Whether you're at a fully fitted family campsite, with an on-site pool and play area for the kids, or if you're in a temporary haven of your own making in the deepest and darkest wilderness, it's the company you keep that makes the experience. Each type of campsite has its' own diverse set of characters - but which character are you?

WILD

FAMILY
CAMPER

The Family Camper spills into the campsite in a flurry of awnings, tents and toys, buzzing around and putting up their personal palaces.
