Our Latest News

Caldecotte Xperience

On Friday 31st May 2019, 24 Dacorum Mencap members and staff set off to Caldecotte Xperience in Bletchley. We stayed in 2 Mongolian Yurts which were great. We took part in 7 activities over the weekend (crate stacking, zorbing, archery, caving, bushcraft, wheely boats & rafted canoes) and everyone had an amazing time. Our members went above and beyond trying new activities and there was so much laughter from us all. We arrived back in Hemel on Sunday late afternoon, despite pleas to stay longer!
