Beyond the Classroom can supply tents as well as swags as sleeping options for your next school camping experience. These days, tents come in a variety of sizes and materials, meant to address multiple functions. Let’s go over the styles we use and explain exactly what you can expect.

Whether you're going on a school camp with us or doing some personal camping in the great outdoors, you can use our list to help you plan fun things to do in Adelaide or South Australia.

Swags Despite differences across brands, swags resemble man-size tents and zippered sleeping bags which consist of the canvas. A mattress is attached permanently to the bottom, providing a comfortable experience for those who wish to sleep on the ground without the need for a roof above.

Swags can be zipped up on all four corners, offering the choice of sheltering your whole body. These are generally waterproof and repel rain, stay warm during winter, and keep off most bugs during hotter months.

Swags may be the ideal shelter in case you prefer a more outdoorsy experience without the usual tent, and considering the weather is agreeable.

 One planet Wurley Tent One popular tent nowadays is the Wurley. It's a top choice for families and adventure operator programs.

The cross-pole design is free-standing and secure, making it perfect for windy or rainy situations. It also allows for quick pitching and excellent internal height. It easily holds three or four people. Adventurers will be able to keep warm thanks to the four-season nylon protection.

Excellent fabric material, sturdy connection points, and other features are used in a practical build. Users of the tent will have a stress-free time organising and setting up due to its reliability and logical design.

Mac Pac Tent The Polaris is an example of a freestanding camping tent for 2 or 3 people that's a good option for hikes and weekend trips. Its design allows suitable accommodation by way of a value-for-money setup. Its occupants get to have fly-free shelter on warm, dry evenings. The feature of side entry doors ensures easy access. The tub shape of the waterproof floor keeps out worries of water entering your tent. In the case of the top, the seam-sealed fly repels water too, making the tent a versatile weekend favourite.

Touring Tent So much time can go into setting up and packing for touring holidays. That’s why many go for touring tents that are easy to pitch and also pack and stow away conveniently.

Touring tents have an all-in-one design that features convenient locks and extensions, leaving you to just put an order to a few pegs and guy ropes.
Many kinds of tents fall under this type, which makes use of sturdy canvas and lightweight components. These appear ‘boxier’ compared to, for example, dome tents. The main feature that sets them apart is the ‘easy pitch’ construction.

That concludes our snap shot of the tents and swags we use at Beyond the Classroom. Whether your camping with us or planning your own trip we hope you have fun with your spring or winter activities!
