VW Action - Club or Family Camping?

Post by lambretta » Tue Aug 31, 2010 11:56 am

Hi Folks.

I've never been to action before but I'm going to take my 3 rd old this weekend, is there club camping or even family camping? I'm assuming its a kid friendly event, as opposed to something like Bug Jam?

Cheers
Julian

Yeah very kid friendly depending depending on your expectations, funny you should mention Bugjam, as this year it was very family friendly I thought!

Excellent, I can't wait to see my little boys face when he see's the drag racing beetles and buses, he's mental about cars and motorsport anyway but this is going to blow his tiny mind all over the place :)

We take our mob - 4, 6 and 8 and they love it
We go in to family camping which last year was near entrance

Kids had a great time playing with the other children they met and going in and out of each others tents and vans (therefore allowing us to relax with a drink or two!!)

If you see a silver van feel free to pop over and say hello
