    Thanks for organising a brilliant camp, Graham - it was the perfect venue, the days were well structured, and I think we have all come away feeling well catered for and welcome, whether newcomer or experienced student. As always, it was also very nice to catch up with old friends, make new ones, and talk the evenings away. Darren

    I thoroughly enjoyed it and it was very cool.to meet you all. Andy

    Best camp ever. John

    Thank you for the best camp. What a wonderful location, thanks Venetia for sharing it and for your fantastic cooking ! Graham the programme was great, it was really good to do crafts with Nigel & kettlebell with Alex as well of course as training with you, Hugh and Ivar. It was good to see you all and to meet new folk too. See you next time ! Clare

    The general concensus is that this was the best Stav camp ever – a sentiment I completely agree with. Louise
