The Discovery 10-Person Family Camping Dome Tent is a 26x23x8' heavy duty, waterproof tent. It's a wonderful choice for families or large groups who wish to have enough comfortable sleeping quarters for everyone and plenty of free-standing shelter to move around in. 


The Discovery 10 is part of the 7-10 people range along with the Como, Icarus, Capricorn, Utah, Sarengo, Zeus, Oberon, Atlas + Miga, and Axis & Zulu.  It is designed to accommodate a maximum of 10 people, placing it on the upper end of the scale. 

Although it is rated for 10 people, the Discovery is more suitable for a large family of 8. It has 3 sleeping rooms where 2 people can lie down comfortably, and one of which can be used as a storage area instead. With this arrangement, there will plenty of room for 4 people left in the living area. To get a better idea of this tent's lay out, you can view the floor plan in the image gallery. 

The Discovery 10 is one of CEC's old designs and has a Standard construction, meaning top-quality, but heavier materials where used. At 37 kgs, this impressive structure is the heaviest tent in our 7-10 person range.  If you wish to get something lighter, the Utah and Sarengo are 10-person tents that weigh in at below 25 kgs. 

It has an inner standing height of 230 cm, placing it on the upper end of the scale in terms of height. This is a good choice for most families of average height however, if you have a special height requirement, you can take a look at the Axis + Zulu Combo which allows the most headroom in this range. 

If you are not very particular about the packed size, you will find that the Discovery 10 is just right as it packs down to 107 x 37 x 37cm. For something more compact, you can check out the Icarus 9 which packs smaller at 78 x 46 x 24cm. 


You will love the Discovery 10 first and foremost for how roomy it is. As a matter of fact, you can squeeze in a queen-size mattress in its inner tents! And if your family doesn't need so much sleeping space but demands a more spacious dining area, you can simply leave out one of the inner tents and VOILA! A larger free-standing shelter. 


The Discovery 10 is completely waterproof. The durable 210T polyester taffeta with 3000mm polyurethane coating is sure to endure heavy downpours. No water can seep in either through its fully-taped seams with 6-7 stitches per inch.

And sleep tight at night because the Polyethylene sewn into the groundsheets in the sleeping area will keep you dry. As for the living area, the tub-style fitted groundsheet can be attached to the rain fly with hooks and toggles. 


The inner tents are made with lighter 190T polyester and will stay cool and airy with the help of the mesh vents and panels incorporated to the full fabric doors. Not to mention, these same features will keep the bugs out


Cleaning the Discovery 10 is easier thanks to the removable groundsheets and rain fly


The Discovery 10's assembly is simplified. Its color-coded tent sleeves is truly a time-saver, preventing you from making mistakes about what sleeve goes to which pole. On top of that, it has fewer but stronger tent stakes which reduces the risk of losing a crucial piece in putting up the tent. Lastly, if working in low-light conditions has been a problem in the past, worry no more because the Discovery 10's polyester guy ropes are woven with reflective 3M Scotch-lite thread for increased visibility.


Every piece in this tent is made to withstand the test of time – and the test of wind. Its Ubertech shock corded poles are 45% percent stronger than the fiberglass ones. The ABS tent stakes will also secure your tent on the ground in the even of an unexpected wind condition (Note: The Discovery 10 is made for summer use and is not guaranteed to withstand gale force winds or hurricanes). It also comes with smartly-positioned, large PP (polypropylene)webbing straps for maximum resistance and tension, maintaining the tent shape and preventing moisture build-up.  


Your new camping staple will arrive at your doorstep free from manufacturer defects. In the unlikely case that there is a problem, you will get a hassle-free replacement by following our simple, customer-friendly guidelines.

Your Questions Answered

From James:

I am looking at 2 models for possible purchase. [One of them is the] Discovery. Question on the floor: I see it has removable floor in middle. Can this area still be sleeping area with floor in (are bugs getting in a problem)? Also it says add or remove sleeping rooms. Does this mean I can shrink the footprint if it is too big or does that just refer to the room separator sheets?...Thanks for your help. Oh wait, 1 more: Are the windows all mesh? They look like clear plastic in the pics but that could just be the pic.


Hi James, thanks for your email. And to answer your question:

  1. The removable groundsheet in the living area makes it easier to clean the tent because it is broken down into individual components - this is the case in the Discovery tent and other tents in the same category - all of the sleeping pods are separate and have a fully sewn in tub style floor.
  2. Other tents in the 7-10 People category have a fully sewn in tent so they are not removable and there is little chance of any bugs getting in...
  3. Each of our tents have mesh vents with covers for increased air circulation in addition to PVC windows to let light in that also include full fabric covers to close them off when you want some privacy or darkness.
  4. With some of the tents in the same category as Discovery, you assemble the rain fly first and then add the inner sleeping pods and the removable groundsheet in the living area - this type of hub & pod design is originally from Europe and suitable for drier climates - the benefit here is that you can set up the rain fly separately to have a large open floor shelter which increase the functional properties the tent.
We hope this helps out. Let us know if you have other questions.
