Have you always wanted to take a trip on the Norfolk Broads? Well, now is your chance with this unique opportunity, and a first for Outdoor lads.

Join us in Norfolk, the home of Lord Nelson, on a camp in North Norfolk.

We cant promise you mountains but we can promise you idyllic coast line, nature, big summer skies and fantastic walks.

On Friday we will meet from 4pm at the campsite, where we will set up and join together for an ODL camp fire late into the evening as the sun sets well into the night.

On Saturday, in a first for ODL we have hired two broads cruiser picnic boats from the nearby Potter Heigham boat station. Each boat is equipped with an onboard kitchen, toilet, seating inside and out, and presents an opportunity for you all to have a go at navigating the Broads network. This does account for the higher than usual ODL camping event cost as boat hire in peak summer season isn't cheap but please remember to consider the Outdoor Lads Foundation as a route to support. I hope ODLers see this as a unique event and a good value way for accessing the Norfolk Broads.

You should consider this a leisure event, as the stops we are likely to take will be for refreshments rather than walking. The experience will last between 6 to 8 hours.

Sunday will be a day of leisure with options of exploring the nearby Broads, one of the many stately homes in the county, a visit to the city of Norwich or a quiet coastal town (at your discretion).

You've done the mountains, got the Spring Camp t-shirt, so join us in the undiscovered County of Norfolk on your ODL bucket list in 2024

Motorhomes, Caravans, Campervans: Sorry, but this is a tent only campsite.

Dogs: Sadly we are not allowing dogs on this event, due to the nature of the boating experience.
