Just wanted to thank you for a great course. Charlie enjoyed it very much and we were very impressed with the range of sports he got to try and the instructors. A great experience and we will be back next year!
I wanted too let you know that my girls had a fantastic time this week at the logoon. They said the activities were great, the staff were fun and made it really enjoyable, and they've found things that they have now experienced and want to do more of.
