NEWS | A Solstice Celebration With Cotswold Outdoor, Saturday 20th June

Camping Blog Camping with Style | Travel, Outdoors & Glamping Blog

To celebrate the start of summer and mark the longest day of the year, Cotswold Outdoor are encouraging the UK public to find time to disconnect and get outside for Britain’s favourite snack time this summer solstice – Elevenses.

While camping trips and weekend breaks still aren’t possible under current regulations, it’s easy to forget that the spirit of adventure can still be had by planning a rest break outside.

Whether it’s part of a day trip on two feet or two wheels, a short walk to the local park or retreating to the garden, the act of planning a small trip or activity can instantly boost our mood by giving us something to look forward to and providing a moment to stop and appreciate our natural environment.

On Saturday 20th June, at 11am sharp, Cotswold Outdoor will be ringing their invisible bell to signal that break-time has started. Asking people to put down their electronic devices, take in the view around them, before picking up a refreshing drink and snack of their choice.

One of a series of activities to encourage Britons to enjoy and document their time spent outdoors this June, Elevenses is part of Cotswold Outdoor’s ‘Solar Celebration’, with activities taking place in the week preceding the summer solstice and on the day itself.

These include a photography tutorial, a backcountry coffee class, afternoon yoga and a sunset soundscape – all hosted via Cotswold Outdoor’s social media channels and led by notable personalities and specialists.
