The Big Wild Sleepout is all about spending a night in nature's home and connecting with the natural world all around you. 

From 7-9 August 2015, we're encouraging families throughout the UK to sleepout overnight, either in their own garden or as part of an organised RSPB event. 

How you take part is up to you. You could pitch a tent, build a shelter or, if the weather's kind, spend a night under the stars.

Wherever you live, nature comes alive at night - what will you see, hear and do? 

Use our events map to pinpoint an event near you, visit our 'Getting ready' page for tips on camping and activities, or sign up for your free Big Wild Sleepout explorer pack containing all the info you'll need to take part.

Have a wild time!
