New research from ‘The Camping and Caravanning Club’ has uncovered that taking your holiday on a campsites or glampsite really does bring families together, leaving people overall happier, enjoying closer relationships with their family, healthier lives, feel less stress and are more socially connected. The research was conducted by a combination of academics at John Moores University in Liverpool who looked at 60 pieces of research and an online survey,

‘Real Richness – The List’ – which includes statistics and stories of those who camp and how camping has in many ways transformed their lives 
Some of the key findings include:

  • 93% of campers say that sleeping out under the stars make them feel happier
  • Over two thirds of campers are satisfied with their quality of life compared to just over half of non-campers
  • Just one in five campers feel stressed on an typical day compared to one in three non-campers
  • Almost all of the children surveyed (91%) said that exploring the outdoors with their parents makes them happy
  • Four out of five children who camp feel that their parents seem less stressed when they go camping and 75% say their parents lose their patience less!

The research also shows that 70% of people agree that camping is accessible to everyone regardless of income which the team at Bluebells & Seashells very much agrees with. And with over 19 campsites and glampsites available to book with on the Bluebells & Seashells website, which include Motor homes, Yurts and mobile VW camper vans why not book a camping trip for this kids this Easter holiday break and enjoy the sunshine while it lasts!
