Summer Camp 2018

Residential Camp at Pontispool – 3rd – 5th April 2018

I need to have some approximate numbers for our Residential Camp at Pontispool during the Easter Holidays – 3rd to 5th April, if you would like to attend please let me know within the next couple of weeks. This Camp is open to all members in school year 7 and above, we will arrive at lunchtime on Tuesday 3rd April, ride for 2 hours that afternoon, then ride in the morning and afternoon on Wednesday 4th April and then finish with 2 hours of riding in the morning of Thursday 5th April. Pontispool also has an extensive XC course, so an excellent way to get started at the beginning of the season. We open this camp to other branches so it is very social and a great way to make new friends or bring your friends from other branches.

Camp 2018 will run from Sunday 29th July – Thursday 2nd August
