A tradition for the Lomagne rugby school: the end-of-year trip, always eagerly awaited, both by children and by educators, happy, after a year of rugby, to spend a relaxing weekend together in a corner of France. Accompanied by a few parents who came to help with the supervision, 65 children from categories U 8 to U 14 were therefore in the Dordogne for three days on the occasion of Pentecost.
The “Le Caminel” campsite in Sarlat-la-Camida, with its mobile homes, welcomed the whole group. On the program for the first day, direction Journiac; the bravest headed for the big bird activity, one condition: not to be dizzy! Four floors with a height of 22 meters awaited the most daring to complete several agility challenges and various challenges. A second group discovered the prehistoric labyrinth to go in search of Cro-Magnon, mission accomplished in the labyrinth with the mirror in the middle of many special effects, and this after having previously solved seven puzzles involving some rewards on arrival. The day ended at laser city, the largest in France. The spirit of competition returned to the front of the stage between the different groups who compared their scores; relaxation and laughter are the order of the day.
The second day, direction the Bournat park, with a return to the 1900s. The reception by hostesses in period dress immediately allowed you to dive into the authenticity of Périgord. Beautiful era where traditions, know-how and techniques of yesteryear make up a whole art of living: car rides; visit of the mill, the school, trades of yesteryear, without forgetting a detour via the amusement park, very popular! The young people were tireless. The evening ended with a bit of rugby and traditional petanque. Before returning to Lomagne, detour via Les Eyzies, at Roc Cazelles, to discover a prehistoric park, the life of our ancestors in their natural environment, then a final stop in the town of Sarlat with its medieval streets and the elevation of the facades of its hotels built in the Renaissance.
A fabulous weekend that combines culture and rugby.
