Summer Camp, what is it? Check what happened last year
Each year we book several cottages for 4/6 people in the Capfun Imbourg campsite, in Larnas in Ardèche (30min from the Gorges de l’Ardèche and Vallon Pont d’Arc).
The campsite is located near historical and natural sites such as the famous Pont d’Arc or the Chauvet Cave, which is a Unesco World Heritage Site ! You can discover the cultural and natural heritage of the Ardèche, and let yourself be tempted by a descent of the Gorges de l’Ardèche in canoe or a stroll in its numerous villages of character, such as Vallon Pont d’Arc or Saint-Montan.
You can book either your own cottage, or just a place in a cottage shared with other participant(s) – see pictures below. You can also chose to skip the campsite and find accommodation in the area.
The Domaine d’Imbours has 2 large water areas with swimming pools, sensational slides and paddling pools, which will satisfy both young and older. In the evening, those who wish to do so, can find diverse and varied shows…
Kids even have a babysitter on-site !
A bit of history?
Master Ming Yue is a fighting monk who grew up in the famous Taoist Mountains of Wudang.
Immersed in the practice of Taoist martial arts since a young age, he excels in the internal arts of Qi Gong, Taiji Quan, Xingyi Quan and Bagua Zhang, both with bare hands and with weapons.
He practiced for many years with the famous master Tian Li Yun, 15th generation heir of the Xuan Wu style of Wudang, whose disciple he became at the age of 15.
Now heir to the 16th generation of Wudang XuanWu, in 2012 he opened his own school, Xuan Wu Gongfu, with his fellow student Liu Song. There he teaches martial arts and Taoist practice according to the principles of Taiji and Tao, the two founding elements of Wudang culture.
