I had such a nice meetup with this group today (at the afternoon hike in Amsterdamse Bos)... First of all thanks!
I saw this event "Normandy summer camp", 26.-28.July, 2013, which I am strongly considering (if anyone wants to join).
The fee is less than 40 euros, and you get a place to sleep and breakfast and good company! We even have the opportunity to do some hiking!!
I have copy-pasted the information about this event from the couchsurfing community, but one thing to add is that if anyone wants to join, then let's try to drive there by car together (or some form of transportation).
Let me know asap! (Before there is no more spot left - a max. of 80 spots and 45 of them are taken!)
►►►► WELCOME !
Canavache (mascot of the CS Lower Normandy group) invites you to celebrate the 5th anniversary of the Normandy Summer Camp!
After memorable editions, along the river, or in an old train station, this is yet another place we want you to discover!
An organic and typical farm in Normandy... lost in the countryside near a forest in the heart of our region !
Since the second edition, we ask you to enjoy the Saturday evening party with a specific theme.
This year, it will be super-heroes, comics and cartoons! So, jump on your costumes and we hope to see many super-heroes or Casimir over there!
►►►► THE FARM "FERME D'ESCURES
3hours away from Paris, 1hour away from D-Day landing beaches, 40min away from Caen.
Space : 37 acres [masked] m2)
Sleeping surface : Camp / Tepee / Beddings in the farm
Sport fields : Hiking, Volleyball, Tree climbing...
We are convinced that the place of NSC5 is incredible ... a huge playground, several choices of accommodation, a typical farm in Normandy, and many paths in a protected environment.
Even if the area is very large, we wish to preserve the NSC spirit : a friendly weekend, where it is possible to chat with each of the attendants and a reasonable number of persons for the weekend. The NSC is a bit like a great family party! For now, we expect a maximum of 80 persons.
You can choose a bed in the farm (several dorm rooms), or a place in tepees, or a spot for your tent set on the outside ground.
