Revealing mistake: Although the movie 'Carry On Camping' is supposed to have been set in the summer time, it was actually filmed in November 1968, during a spell of very cold weather. You can actually see the cast's breath in the cold air at some points. The field in which the famous "flying bra" sequence was shot was so muddy, that the mud had to be sprayed green to make it look like grass.
Continuity mistake: While Dr Soaper is doing the exercises with the girls at the camp site, Peter Potter gets out of his tent and starts watching them. When the camera is facing the girls, Barbara is not there. But when they are touching their toes, Barbara is there.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Mr & Mrs Potter are cycling to the holiday camp, you can see that about 100yards behind them, a white car is parked on the right hand side of the road. In the next shot, they pass by Mr Muggins and the car suddenly appears immediately to their right. They seem to be back where they started. (From DVD viewing). (00:23:10)
Continuity mistake: When Sid and his friends arrive at the camp site and they are talking to the man putting up the sign, Mr Fiddler come back with the letter p, so the sign will say "all passes must be shown". At the end as Dr. Soaper and matron go after the flowerbuds lorry as they go past the sign it says "all asses must be shown".
Continuity mistake: When Peter Potter arrives home from work near the start of the film, the front door of his house opens directly into a large room, but when he and his wife leave the house in their camping gear, the front door opens into a room which is about six feet deep. (00:05:10 - 00:15:00)
Continuity mistake: At the start of the film, when Sid parks the van outside the shop, a blonde girl walks past. When he gets out of the van, he ogles the same girl as she walks past the van a second time.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where the girls are fighting in the school, they stop when they hear Matron. After Matron leaves the room, Babs puts the line of wool around the other girls neck.There is a girl standing on the right of the TV but in the very next shot, she is sitting. (00:12:30)Baz94
Continuity mistake: When Mr Tanner falls over Fanny in the youth hostel and pulls Babs' clothing off, Fanny is seen on the floor lying sideways away from the camera when this happens. In the next shot she is sitting up, facing the camera.
Continuity mistake: When Sid and Bernie leave Mrs. Fussey's house, Sid is seen with an umbrella in his hand. Sid then gives Bernie the umbrella which he wedges in the left hand side of the roof rack. But when the camera cuts to the left hand side of the car, the umbrella has gone.
Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the film in the cinema Sid's ice lolly has two bites at the side. Shortly afterwards, with no new bites taken, they're different shapes.

Revealing mistake: During the keep fit session, Babs' bra is seen falling off in a downwards direction, yet it still manages to hit Dr Soaper in the face.
Revealing mistake: When we see the coach driving down the country lane, you can see that the driver is not Julian Holloway but his stunt double.
Continuity mistake: When Sid and Bernie are in the car on their way to pick up Joan and Anthea, Sid drives the car around a bend, but in the very next shot he's on a straight piece of road.
Continuity mistake: When Sid and Bernie come out of their tent to go the washroom, Bernie is starting to put on his shirt. After a quick cut to Sid, we return to Bernie and he has now managed to get his shirt completely on and buttoned in the space of about 5 seconds.
Continuity mistake: When we see Sid and Bernie sleeping outside their tent after their dinghy inflated, you can see that Bernie's head is tilted to his left and he is bending his left arm. In the next shot, both his head and left arm are now straightened.
Continuity mistake: When Matron goes over to see Dr. Soaper in his tent, the tent next to Soaper's has two chairs outside, but in the next shot another chair has suddenly appeared.
Continuity mistake: As they are about to leave in the car in front of the house, Mrs. Fussey is right behind Sid as he walks round the car. However, when you see the next shot she is far behind him.
Continuity mistake: On the first night at the camp site it is raining. Before Sid and Bernie go to sleep, Bernie accidentally inflates the rubber dinghy, but the outside shot of the dinghy inflating in the tent shows that it is not raining.
Continuity mistake: Whilst walking down the corridor in the school, Miss Haggerd hears a noise coming from the classroom. She goes to the door and opens it with her left hand, but in the next scene she is seen opening the door with her right hand.
Continuity mistake: When Sid puts his feet into the pot of Joan's stew, you can see that Anthea is sitting down peeling vegetables and she is nowhere near Sid. But when Joan says, "Sid, my stew!" the scene changes to a close-up of the pot, and Anthea is now sitting next to Sid.
Audio problem: When Sid says "What are you doing?" after Bernie pulls the dinghy cord in the tent, the audio we hear does not match Sid's mouth movements at all.
Visible crew/equipment: Outside Mrs Fussey's house when Sid and Bernie are carrying the suitcases, the boom mike is reflected in the windscreen of Sid's car.
Continuity mistake: When Sid tells Bernie of his plan to nip outside and sew Joan and Anthea's tent flaps together, he is holding the needle and thread with his hands together, but in the next shot he is holding them with his hands wide apart.
Continuity mistake: When Dr. Soaper asks the girls if they have any questions regarding Stonehenge on the coach, two girls stand up behind Babs and Fanny, but in the next shot when Fanny says "Go on, Babs, I dare you!", they are sitting down again.
Continuity mistake: During the scene when Sid James is tying up the necklaces of the hippies at the rave-up, one of them he ties up is a blonde haired man with a striped shirt and brown jacket. But when we see "The Flowerbuds" performing a little later on, this man is no longer tied up - he is now dancing with the other hippies.
Continuity mistake: When Mr Fiddler comes over to see Sid about the clothes line, you can see Bernie's blanket is covering his vest. In the next shot, his vest is uncovered, and when Sid stands up to talk to Mr Fiddler about a "small charge", the vest is covered again.
Continuity mistake: When Sid tells Bernie to turn off the light in the tent, Sid's hair is neatly combed, but in the next shot the back of his hair is now sticking up.
