MND 2016 Summer Camp!!!!!!

This is for MND Health Members and MND Fitness members only. Please let me know as soon as possible who’s coming.

June 9th-12th

June 8th: Travel to Brecon, the heart of Brecon Beacons.
I was going to book us into the campsite I have used for 30 years, it’s posh and costs £16 per night, but I have found a new campsite to try for just £7.50 per night, has free Wi-Fi and views over the Beacons! Result…it’s on a farm, might be more ‘rustic’ but has toilets and hot showers, so all is good!

Nice pub for evening meals is just 20 mins walk (4 mins car) away.

June 9th: Hike on Beacons – we may do Pen-y-Fan by ‘Karl’s route’ again, or we can travel over to Fan Foel is the Group want to get away from the crowds. Both are lovely days out. Distance will be between 8 to 12 miles, depending on group ability. We have all day so it’s chilled.

June 10th: Gorge walking! A dun day in a wetsuit jumping around in rivers, getting wet, scrambling on rocks and having a good laugh! Fully guided, and safe, and jumping into deep pools is optional, no one will force you to do anything. Suitable for all, so long as you have basic level of fitness. Consistent customer feedback says it’s a great fun day.

June 11th: Pony trekking on Brecon Beacons. We go out for about 2.5 hours on horses, mostly off-road, up into the hills, guided of course, suitable for all levels, beginners can walk, more experienced riders get a chance to canter off into the yonder…faaarrkkk that sounds so cool!

June 12th: Chilled Sunday. We can make up a picnic, go to the Talybont reservoir and relax. You guys always enjoy getting to know each other and having time to chat, so our last day will give us that time. However, if a few of you want to push on down to Chepstow with me and have a crack at some 200 foot high rock climbs, then we can do that – but please be aware that I only have enough equipment for this to be realistic for tops 3 or 4 people. It’s not like the super-easy, user-friendly beginners rock we did at Summer Camp last year!

Costs:
Camping £7.50 per night, 4 nights = £30 quid
Gorge walking £65 per person – they provide wetsuits and all safety gear, helmets, etc.
Pony trekking: £37.50 per person
Food, fuel, etc.

So if you are up for the lot, then it’s about £135 per person.
All activities optional. This is a MND Members group trip, it’s all just for fun, and maybe to push your comfort zones a little, we just want to have a laugh. Gorge walking not suitable for young kids, and pony trekking does not allow under 11 yr olds.
If you want to come and join in some or all, you are welcome – don’t think it’s some ‘fitness bootcamp’ as it’s not. All activities are optional, and if you fancy coming but not ‘activity X’ then you can go do other stuff, explore the area, Brecon, Abergavenny, the Beacons visitor center, so shopping down in Cardiff, whatever you want to do.

Friends and family of you members are welcome, but remember this is an MND trip, this is for you lot, US lot, to hang out together, it’s a health/nature/outdoors thing, we don’t want to be swamped with 20 non-MND’ers who all want to get drunk, it’s not that sort of trip!

Last year Summer Camp was awesome fun!

I need to pay deposits to confirm our activities, ASAP next week, so please, let’s get booked up fast.

Let me know folks!
