An annual 4-day family event with a strong outdoor theme. The Rendezvous is organised by Tamarack Outdoors and held at Tawd Vale Campsite, near Lathom in Lancashire
Consisting of 80 acres of lush woodlands in the heart of the West Lancashire countryside, Tawd Vale has long been a favourite site for generations of campers. The River Tawd from which the site derives its name wanders through the centre of the camp and adds to the natural beauty of the surrounding area, a place of fun and adventure.
Everyone is welcome, from young and old, to come and camp and join in all the activities. Over the four days there are lectures, demonstrations, 'how to' sessions and activities for all the family.
With large flat grass glades and banks of mature trees you will always find a great pitch at Tawd Vale.

You are able to park on hard standing areas close to your tent pitch. For those who prefer to use a hammock and tarp you can pitch camp in the woodland area.

Within Tawd Vale is a flooded quarry known as The Delph. This is available to use for those with canoes but you need to be self-reliant, please ensure you have all necessary safety equipment.
Dogs are also welcome on site but must be kept on a lead.
The focal point of the RV is the Tamarack HQ. The Tamarack Team are based here co-coordinating the event, answering questions and are always on hand for any technical equipment queries.

The HQ is also where the team will be running the Tamarack Rendezvous Mini Store for all those essential or forgotten items.

RV2018 will also see the return of the Tamarack Café. Based at the HQ the Café will be serving breakfast and then tea, coffee and cakes for the rest of the day. On two nights an evening meal will also be available - Friday is Game Stew and Saturday is Venison Burgers.
For 2018 we are introducing the Rendezvous Trading Post.

The idea came from Mike at the RV2017 where he brought along a box of second hand outdoor clothing and equipment and nearly sold the lot.

So if you have some outdoor related kit bring it along and sell it direct from your tent or tarp.

The rules are that the kit has to be clean, well maintained and serviceable with a price label attached.
RV2017 round up...
Wow talk about rain... we had a deluge the first night of RV2017 with springs popping up in the camping field and rivers running down tracks. However, we soldiered on and it was nice to hear laughter when the rain abated for a while.
It was great to see that the usual suspects were back in attendance and a lot of catching up was underway when the activities started on the Thursday.
We try and change the RV around each year, this year was no exception. The CookOut day on the Friday proved a success with all participants cooking Bannock and wild game stew which we enjoyed in the evening. The RV Party went well with much conversation and laughter around the fire and the rain having an evening off.
This year we had a lot of feedback from customers regarding things they would like to see at future Rendezvous. So for RV2018 we're introducing some major changes. The most noticeable being that we are no longer at Bowley, our new site will be Tawd Vale Campsite. So a fresh venue for people to explore and I am planning a number of new activities and lectures which will be great.
In essence a very wet RV this year but looking forward to exploring the new site and hosting new activities in 2018... Mike
