Boycott your bed and Camp Out for Sands! 

This summer, we challenge you to give up your bed for one night and sleep under the stars for Sands, knowing that by doing so, you're saving babies' lives and supporting bereaved families. 

Whether its a tent in the garden, or a den in the front room, everyone can create their own campsite and Camp out for Sands. Join the camping team by signing up this summer.

Can we host a work place or club/group Camp Out?
