Foreign Camp Info

SPAIN CAMP 2018

Venue

HOTEL NAME:  Hotel Bernat II                                        

RESORT NAME:  Callela, Barcelona

Coaches – Jon Wills, Ashley Barnett and Claire Kerslake

Chaperones – Tree O’Donnell, Max Adams, Emma Dodd, Robin Kerslake

Land training Coach/chaperone – Jo Soteriou

Total number swimmers - 36

COST

We are now in a position to share the final costs of the camp. The total cost is £726. The slight increase is due to the flight prices with easy jet. We did our best to estimate the cost but as the flight prices reflect demand and if you don’t purchase them on the day they are released you miss out. We bought the return flights on the day they were released so go a better price.

The payment plan that was given out in January has been amended to reflect the slight increase.

Flight details

Outbound Flights.

Leaving on Saturday 27th October at 7:00 – 10:15. Arrival time at airport to be confirmed. It will be early!!!

Flight Number: 6029 Bristol to Barcelona

The swimmers will be able to choose who they want to sit by on the plane. We have 6 seats in each row. We have been allocated rows: 7, 8, 9, 12, 13, 14, 15, and 2 in row 16. 

Return Flights

Departing on Saturday 3rd November at 16:10 and landing at 17:35. We will be leaving the hotel in Spain at midday following a morning swim.

Flight number: 2268 Barcelona to London Luton. 

We have booked a coach to pick us up from the airport and return us to Kingswood Leisure centre. The reason we have done this is there was only 1 flight into Bristol on the return and the cost was double the outbound price. Flying into Luton and the cost of the coach was a lot cheaper. 

The seats we have been allocated on the return flight are rows: 8, 9, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17

Luggage allowance:

Easy jet allowance is 23KG. DO NOT GO OVER THIS!!!! Pack sensibly.

Cabin bag size is 56cm (L) x 45cm (W) x 25cm (H)

All swimming gear will need to be put in the hold. The arena bags they use on poolside will be too big as hand luggage. Jon will supply a recommended a kit list in September. The kit will need to include land training clothes and several costumes. 

Passport details required.

Please photocopy your child’s passport details and hand it into the club desk (by September 10th) and they will be filed securely and destroyed once we have used them.

We need the following details to check in online 3 days before we leave: Full name, Passport number, Passport expiry date, Country of Issue, Nationality, date of birth and gender. When we enter these details we will allocate the seats too. 

Confirmation it’s a great venue - From talking to Sara Part from Severnside Tritions at the mini series last weekend, they have been to this resort/camp twice and have said it’s very good. That’s good to know. 

Training times: maximum of 2 swim sessions a day, total of 4 hours (7am and 14.30)  plus 1 hour land training. 

Rooms – Jon will allocate the swimmers to rooms, there will be 4 swimmers to a room.

Spain Camp Notice

Spain Camp update: Payment required

 

Sports Aboard have received our deposit and the booking for hotel and pool are confirmed.

I can also confirm that our outbound flights have been booked and paid for using the Easyjet group booking system. We have been allocated our seats, luggage allowance booked and we can enter the passenger details including passport numbers much closer to the departure date. For the number of seats we required this was the only booking option for us. I am personally grateful to Rhona and Andrea who made the booking for us.

 

We are flying out on Saturday 27th October with EasyJet, flight number 6029, departing Bristol Airport at 07:10. Check in will be no later than 05:40. Arrival time at the Airport TBC

 

It is time again to ask for a second payment so we can book the return flights. They will be released mid April and the club are not in a position to pay for these on our behalf. We NOW require a further payment from the swimmers and the chaperones who are going on camp. We are asking for a payment of £200 by Wednesday 4th April 2018.  If you make an online payment please make sure it goes into the right account stating the swimmers name and reference Spain camp: Co-Op bank 08-92-99 Account 65827532

 

On payment please could you email Claire Kerslake Claire-kerslake1@hotmail.co.uk so I can update my spreadsheet of payments.

 

If you are making a cheque or cash payment at the club desk, they will record your payment also.

 

If you have any questions, please get in touch with me.

 

Best wishes

Claire Kerslake
