Hi Kim & Adam !
Just some pics from Idoia on the road to (The European Youth Olympic Winter Festival) with the Youth Olympic Team Spain. She never forgets WT as a fundamental step in her skating. Great job !
When staying at camp I learned so many things. We did so many great games and activities and the staff here was really nice.
It’s been one of the best summers I ever had.
Dylan had an awesome time – he wants to attend for 2 straight weeks next year.
Well done everyone!
Coralea and Melanie had a wonderful week waterskiing, swimming and skating. They really enjoyed taking part in all the fun camp activities that were planned. The cottage was great! We look forward to seeing you next summer.
