Camp Wildfire is held on a private woodland estate- much of the ground is flat and grassy, but the route from the campsite to the centre camp can get quite muddy- especially if the weather in the run up to the festival is quite wet, if it gets very muddy- mobility can become quite tricky in a wheelchair and there are no metal trackways or other routes into the main area.

We will be updating our website to include a map of the ground types across the site, as well as the distances to and from specific points shortly.

We are currently working on updating our website to include accessibility information for each activity and hope to have this information available very shortly.

The campsite has wheelchair accessible unisex toilets, showers and fresh water points. These facilities are accessed using a radar key, which is held by the medical team who are located next to the campsite.

Security and the medical team are on hand 24/7 throughout the weekend, if you require any assistance.

You are welcome to bring your own food to cook in the designated campsite cooking area, if required.

Otherwise, we work with the UK's most renowned and delicious street food traders and always ensure we offer a large variety of vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free and nut free options. 

A main meal usually costs between £5 and £10, with snacks available for less. 

We understand that large events with lots of people can be a bit overwhelming sometimes.

A quiet area can be found at The Retreat. This area is provided by Blink- a mental health charity, who also offer quiet activities like colouring and mindfulness. Blink also offer free therapy sessions with qualified therapists. Head down to The Retreat if you'd like to book a session- or just need some quiet time.

Our medical team can safely store and refrigerate medication.

Please hand this to them on arrival on site and ensure it is in a sealed container with your name clearly labelled on.

Assistance dogs are very welcome to attend. Please contact us to discuss this in advance at office@campwildfire.co.uk.

Unfortunately, we are not able to allow any other pets on site.
