School & Group Hire


We have over 18 years experience working with young people in the outdoors, leading expeditions around the world. We are passionate about getting young people outdoors and understand the value that camping brings to young peoples lives. Camping boosts confidence, independence, self-esteem, team work, improves a sense of community and provides long lasting life memories.  


We provide a range of the best high quality tents and camping equipment for schools and groups. We stock VANGO tents recommended for Duke of Edinburgh award expeditions.  We also stock bell tents to give your camp that extra special feel.  
From our base in Sheffield, Wildcat Camping works with schools and groups all over the country, providing tent hire for all occasions.  We can provide tents for up to 60 students at a time. We will work with you to create a really memorable camping experience, either in your own school grounds or other location. Where possible we will come and talk to you and your students before your camping event to demonstrate putting up the tents, talk about what you will need and answer any questions. If you don't have time or need the help, you can even book us to put up and take down the tents or we can work with the students to get them working together to achieve this.
