Matelot Camp 2

February 23 @ 8:00 am - February 24 @ 5:00 pm

MATELOT CAMPING 23rd- 24th February, 2019

Come journey with us to the sleepy village of Matelot, peacefully nestled at the end of the North Eastern part of the island. There you will sleep under the stars to the tune of the waves and hums of the ancient forest. At camp hikers will learn to pitch a tent, cook ole school style using firewood, roast marshmallows in the Bonfire they would have created and learn to tie knots like a fisherman. And of course swim in the pristine waters of Matelot Beach or River.
This camp is perfect for first time campers and those wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
