19th July - 21st July - U8's Go Camping
We are organising our first U8 family camping trip. Previously we have camped with multiple age groups (there still may be a minis camp), but we wanted a dedicated U8 camp. We are looking at venues, but will probably go to Bedgebury camping, as it is a good price, loads of open space for the kids to run about, easy to get to and we are close to other amenities.
We will be looking to book this by the end of the month, so please confirm your attendance
