IT IS NO surprise that after a year of uncertainty surrounding travel and the fate of our holidays hanging by a thread, camping is having a surge in popularity, making it the vacation of choice this year.
This camping boom has resulted in the world’s largest sports retailer, Decathlon, reporting a huge 540% growth in sales in 2021, across the whole of their camping range, compared to the previous year, with the biggest growth being in outdoor furniture.
Chris Allen, Decathlon UK Camping Leader commented: “It is great to see an appreciation for camping flourish as we slowly head out of the pandemic and off on our staycations this year. With international travel still uncertain, this summer is a great opportunity for people across the UK to appreciate what Britain has to offer, and what better way to do that than by camping.”
“We have seen significant boosts in our outdoor furniture sales, such as luxury outdoor chairs and camping stools that can be folded into backpacks and taken on hikes, however larger products are also performing well. Inflatable camping shelters have seen a 400% growth in sales compared to last year and our blackout inflatable tents have seen a 200% growth for the same period”.
Decathlon’s huge camping range has everything you need to make this year’s staycation one to remember, from family tents to sleeping bags, so head back to nature and enjoy a summer of fun together.
Tents and structures
This tent is easy to pitch thanks to its all-in-one inflatable structure.
It is large enough for the whole family – complete with two bedrooms, ideal for giving the kids their own space and also a living room which is spacious enough for a family games night.
The Fresh and Black fabric means even when the tent is filled to capacity, it reduces the heat inside to keep everyone cool and allows you to get a restful night’s sleep. It also guarantees 99% darkness meaning you won’t wake up when the sun rises in the morning.
What’s more, there is no need to worry about unsettled British weather as this tent can withstand a tropical rainstorm of 200L of water and force seven winds.
For those wanting extra space, this inflatable camping area is a great choice as its easy to pitch thanks to its all-in-one inflatable structure.

Want an easy solution for making sure you have everything you need for camp site cooking? At under £30 this cook set is great value as it has everything you need to whip up a feast whilst camping.
The set fits perfectly inside the stainless-steel pan with a tablemat lid to secure all the items, including: one saucepan, one frying pan, a strainer/lid, two bowls, two mugs, two sets of three piece cutlery (fork, spoon, knife) and a silicon locking system that can be used as a mat and a handy carry case.
The stainless-steel pans are non-stick and durable thanks to their two-layer bottoms, meaning they can be used on all types of burners, such as wood, gas and burner.
This two-person sleeping bag is ideal for a romantic weekend away in nature as the fabric has been naturally dyed to reduce its environmental impact, meaning you can enjoy being cosy in the great outdoors guilt free!
It is suitable for camping in temperatures around 10 degrees, making it perfect for those chilly summer evenings. This sleeping bag can also be unzipped into a cosy duvet if need be.
