Our BIG HIGHLIGHT of the year is our fantastic annual youth holiday known as
Every August we take young people away for an INCREDIBLE 6 DAYS of fun, friendship, sport, workshops, outings, wide games, tournaments, adventure activities, camp fire, BBQ, water fight and water slide, talent shows and times of exploring the Christian Faith!
Our 2019 HOLIDAY is from Wednesday, August 21st to Monday, August 26th. We’re going back to THE POPLARS, an amazing 70 acre converted farm near Gloucester in beautiful countryside and with stunning views in all directions!
The centre has its own OUTDOOR SWIMMING POOL (floodlit!), a CINEMA IN THE CELLAR, and loads of space for a brilliant activities programme! In previous years we’ve been to a THEME PARK with great rides and also the opportunity to go on safari and get close to some seriously proper wild animals! Our 2019 holiday will feature a super exciting programme!
The cost works out at around £250 per young person, but we charge ONLY £80 – thanks to the wonderful gifts and grants we receive from individuals, churches and charitable trusts.
Just before Christmas we go away for a SPECIAL FESTIVE WEEKEND at DALESDOWN CAMPING & CONFERENCE CENTRE in West Sussex. This year’s dates are Friday evening December 15th to Sunday afternoon December 17th. The cost is only £30.00.
This year we’ll again be playing some crazy Christmas games, watching Christmas movies, enjoying the sports hall and adventure trail, playing the classic gift exchange game, tucking into a proper Christmas dinner (yes, a week early), and focusing on the awesome Christmas message!
Then over the late May bank holiday weekend, we’ll be staying 3 nights at an amazing retreat centre in Barcombe (East Sussex) called ST BARTZ. That will be our base so we can enjoy all the activities and facilities at MAYCAMP, a great Christian youth festival, just down the road on Plumpton Racecourse.
Dates for 2018 are Friday evening May 25th to Monday lunchtime May 28th. Again, just £30.00 per person!
