Photo Gallery: Your home camping pictures


In association with

Even though we can’t leave our homes just now , thousands of you have been camping at home, while respecting the lockdown.

Whether it's setting up a tent in your garden, sleeping out in a campervan parked in your drive or simply creating an improvised tent in your living room using blankets and chairs, you've been doing your best to get your camping fix and  following all the government advice on social distancing. Not to mention raising thousands of pounds for the NHS in the process.

We asked you to share your home camping set-up photos for the chance to win a Coleman Octagon BlackOut tent and Camping and Caravanning Club membership worth £440. And you didn't let us down.

Here is the winning entry from Keely Jane Ward

"Mummy, Lucy and Lily's Easter night in the garden."
