Fancy some alfresco fun? Then join us from 16th – 18th July 2021 for a Wild Night Out, when people across the UK will be coming together to have adventures outdoors, big and small. We’ll have guest speakers, guided walks and outdoor activities before settling in for a night under the stars.

We’re partnering with Explorers Connect to bring Wild Night Out to four YHA Camping & Cabins sites. Sounds like something you’d like to be a part of? Then why not book to stay for one or two wild nights with YHA. You can bring your own tent or use our glamping products.
