It was awesome
Jake Sales-Dupont, 19 Apr 24
Great few days, Cory and Wozza were great and food/camp site were good too. Would have been good maybe to set up a few more games/"organised fun" on the beach potentially in the afternoons as wasn't much to do when returning to the campsite already at 4pm
Audrien CIESIELCZYK, 04 Apr 24
Awesome, Jammie was incredible, we had very good times!
Amanda Wallin, 18 Mar 24
