2018 UPDATE: 

"I've put my hand up to help coordinate activities at Foxton this year. I'm reflecting on previous camps and want to check in with everyone around their expectations and/if people would like to email or message me with activities they would like to take the lead on.

PM me or email alicia-hall@live.com

Cheers
