LOCATION, ACCOMMODATION & MEALS


Location

longtown-outdoor-learning-centre

Summer Camp 2019 will be held at the wonderful Longtown Outdoor Learning Centre.

Set in the breathtaking foothills of the Black Mountains, LOLC been hosting groups in their old coaching inn and leading challenging outdoor adventure activities in and around the Brecon Beacons National Park since 1964.

The multi-activity outdoor education centre promotes resilience, self-confidence, consideration for others, care for the environment and an appreciation for the benefits of an active outdoor lifestyle. The LOLC team are firm believers that these characteristics come from enjoying the successes achieved through personal endeavour and working together, in wild and beautiful landscapes - a view very much shared by Camp Crusoe.

We are very fortunate to have such a wonderful location for Summer Camp 2019 and are looking forward to welcoming campers to the amazing centre at Longtown.


Accommodation

A an essential element of Summer Camp is the residential experience that the campers get. Sharing a room and considering others, living as part of a community and looking after your own personal space are all essential skills learnt at camp.

Accommodation for Summer Camp 2019 will be in a number of dormitories ranging in group size from 3 to 7 and the campers will be separated into groups by age and gender.

The newest part of the accommodation has ground floor accessibility for those who may have restricted mobility with a walk-in shower room.

Throughout the accommodation there are a number of comfortable common rooms for group activities and relaxing in the evenings.


Meals

A well fed camper is a happy camper and therefore meal times at Camp Crusoe are an integral part of the day.

Campers will enjoy a hearty and healthy breakfast in the communal dining room and whenever possible lunch and dinner will be enjoyed outside, whether it be out on the hill or in the garden enjoying a barbecue or homemade pizza.

We are very much of the opinion that ‘you are what you eat’ and therefore good ingredients are a vital part of our menu planning. Information on special dietary requirements should be shared as early as possible and information on this will be included in the parents’ pack.
