Get ready for your Campout

SIFA Fireside’s BIG Brummie Campout is a fundraising event running all summer in 2024, open to families, schools, youth groups, and anybody looking to help improve the lives of people experiencing homelessness in Birmingham.

The Campout has been created in a flexible way so you can choose a date that suits you, set up a JustGiving fundraiser and spend a night under the stars with friends, family or classmates.

The team at SIFA Fireside have put together a whole host of recipes, activities and games in collaboration with some of your favourite Brummie independents, as well as some educational resources for young people. Simply download the cards below and give them a try at your Campout!

Have a go at BBQ Bingo or DIY Bunting, toast some marshmallows to make s’mores, or perhaps this is the perfect opportunity to talk to your family about homelessness and positive action.

Campout Guide

Every year we celebrate our BIG Brummie community with a BIG Brummie Campout, getting family, friends, schools and community groups to camp out in their back gardens to support SIFA Fireside.

Our Campout is the perfect opportunity to get young people involved in our work and supporting their community. Take a look at our Campout Fundraising Pack to find out how your local school or youth group can take part in the event.
