Ticket Link - Day Ticket

The short answer is everything!
There are certain attractions such as the fun fair, donkey rides, face painting and inflatables which will be limited. This is simply to keep it fair to all children so all children get to have a go. We want all of the children to be able to experience all that we have on offer without the stress of queues so the best way to avoid this is to have these attractions ticketed.
Products, drinks and food are not included in your ticket. Some activities may require you to book in a time slot and return later. Tickets also include goody bags for parents and children.



Camp Severn is aimed at the little folk aged 0 -12. That's not to say that older kids wont enjoy it as we have plenty to keep them entertained like the shows but the primary target is the little ones. All Children 3 and above will require a ticket.
We can not guarantee that tickets will be available on the door as the event may sell out however, if tickets are available they are charged at “on the gate” prices.
