    Another epic Kerouac Adventure Retreat!

    Kerouac Adventures helps men who may be struggling with their mental or emotional health by reconnecting a group (13 people) to a friendship community and a beautiful nature space. Here they get to talk about life's challenges in a safe, non-judgmental, sensitive space, usually around a campfire. Once again the fort provided the ideal location for a great weekend. The weather was perfect too. Thank you Heritage.

    Kerouac Adventure Retreat

    A beautiful location with just the right balance of leisure and 'roughing it' as we connected to nature.

Built in the mid-19th century on a cliff side overlooking Bouley Bay, L’Étacquerel Fort is a great (if basic) base for an adventure on Jersey’s beautiful and rugged north coast. What it lacks in mod cons L’Etacquerel Fort makes up for in character and stunning views.

Built with traditional Jersey granite, the property itself is very utilitarian, it has no running water or electricity. But there are two composting toilets on-site. L’Étacquerel Fort has tables and benches in the guardhouse. But basically you will be camping here in your own private Fort. Spread across two levels, the property has plenty of outside space along with a terraced area.

Situated along a steep coastal path in Jersey’s National Park, access to the Fort is across the dry moat, on a high wooden bridge. Due to the location of the property, we recommend children to be supervised at all times. As with all camping trips we would recommend bringing sleeping equipment, food provisions and torches with you when you stay here.
