Superb Location

The Camp will be held at the University of Essex campus in Colchester, Britain’s oldest recorded town. The campus is located in the historic 200-acre Wivenhoe Park. This picturesque park was originally landscaped in the 18th century. The campus is built around five compact and bustling squares
with shops, a street market, restaurants, banks, and even a theatre.

The skipping sessions will be held in a brand new, state-of-the-art sports hall which was completed earlier this year. It has a large floor space of 60x35m. It is only a few minutes’ walk from the accommodation.
