Event Details

Back by popular demand – New dates for 2023!

Join us and embrace the ‘can do’ Calvert attitude: challenge yourself on Saturday with an outdoor activity followed by an art workshop with the fabulous Juno Lowther using Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night’ as inspiration. As the stars appear, meet volunteer astronomers from Cockermouth Astronomical Society for an introduction to the night sky. After dinner head up Dodd Wood for marshmallows, hot chocolate and star gazing through telescopes and binoculars under the guidance of our friendly astronomers.   Depart after breakfast on Sunday – heavenly!

This weekend is accessible to those with both physical and learning disabilities as our centre is fully equipped with a range of specialist equipment, but unlike most of our residential stays this is also open to non-disabled groups and visitors.
