Ascension Day

An extra long weekend of pure enjoyment

Ascension Day at FarmCamps

There is plenty to do on the farm during Ascension Day. Playing in the Hay and Hay Play Barn, climbing on the Tractor Tire Climbing Tower, milking cows with the farmer or baking cookies and ice cream with the farmer’s wife. With your new friends you will discover every corner of the farm while mom and dad relax in the hammock or on the porch by the very luxurious tent.

Ascension Day in 2022 is on the 26th of May. An excellent time to get away from it all. Just book the extra long Ascension weekend and drive to the farm on Wednesday after work.

Luxury and comfort

Camping is not “cramming. All our tents are specially designed for guests who have to get used to camping. Or for the pros who now want to try that so-called ‘glamping’ to see if it really differs that much.

And it does … All tents have a private toilet in the tent and also standard heating, comfortable beds and a kitchen with stove and running water.

If you want more comfort, check out our tents with private shower and / or bath.

What is Ascension Day?

On Ascension Day, Christianity commemorates Jesus going to God in heaven. This was thirty-nine days after he rose from the dead. The celebration is part of the Easter cycle, so Ascension Day is actually the fortieth day of Easter. Ascension Day always falls on a Thursday, ten days before Pentecost.
