PUMA Winter Camp 11-14th Nov 2016
Message from Master Gayle VIII, CHairman of PUMA…
We would like to invite you to join us on the 17th annual P.U.M.A. Winter Camp. As always this is a fantastic opportunity to meet, train and socialise with like-minded students from all over the country. This year’s camp will be held at Warmwell Holiday Park, near Weymouth in Dorset and is open to all P.U.M.A. students aged 12 or over. Students over 12 and under 18 years old may attend if training and accompanied by a training parent, non-training partners are also welcome. Sessions will take place twice a day (on Saturday 12th November and Sunday 13th November) with all sessions being taken by P.U.M.A.’s Masters and/or senior grades. Sessions are varied and so whether you are preparing for your next grading or just looking to broaden your horizons and train with different instructors/students, Winter Camp offers something for everyone.
Please note that training may well involve some running, you should be able to jog for about a mile and a half (or 10 to 15 minutes) comfortably. Don’t let this put you off, but it is advisable that you do some specific training prior to the camp if you are not used to running. Ask your instructor for help with this if you need any advice.
You will stay in self-catering chalets, which can sleep up to eight people and have all modern the conveniences you will need. Warmwell Holiday Park is set in a beautiful location in rural Dorset and there are various forms of entertainment on the site including a dry ski slope and swimming pool. In addition to training you will have time to relax, make use of the facilities or explore the beautiful local area. The nearby coastline and countryside are also stunning if you fancy exploring a little further afield.
