CONFIRMED – Derbyshire it is!!

This week we have confirmed the site for Summer camp 2018.

We are going to be camping near Carsington Water in Derbyshire.  The date of the camp is July 28th – August 4th 2018.

We will be sending a letter in the next couple of weeks asking for names interested in attending and for a non-returnable deposit by the end of January 2018.

The camp will cost no more than £150.

We hope this will allow you to plan for the rest of your Holidays.
