Testimonials:

 

We wanted to thank LimbPower for an absolutely super weekend at the Family Camp at Longtown earlier this month. The whole weekend was really enjoyable and I know that ***** had a great time. He loved doing all the activities and joining in with all the other kids. It was great to see ***** and all the kids rising to the challenges, he was very pleased to reach the top of the climbing wall and stand-up on the paddleboards. I'm sure there was some sibling rivalry in there, as he wasn't going to let his little sister climb higher than him!"

 

Well everyone is still talking about camp and what an amazing time they had. In the evaluation, you will be pleased to know that Longtown staff got a resounding 100% for care, help and friendliness during the weekend. Do have to say Doris got more than one mention and everyone praised the catering. Let Rae know that her wet camp fire was mentioned in nearly all the children's evaluations as being one of the best things - it was worth it! The children did mention that they wanted to try the high ropes next time ”

 

The venue and team at Longtown Outdoor Centre really looked after us, with tasty food all weekend, the  friendly instructors and It was a beautiful location for the weekend. We were all looking forward to the weekend leading up to it, but the weekend itself surpassed our expectations and the kids have been asking to do it again!”
