Our BIG HIGHLIGHT of the year is our fantastic annual youth holiday known as
Every August we take young people away for an INCREDIBLE 5 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 2021 HOLIDAY was from Saturday, August 14th to Wednesday, August 21st.
For the first time in 2021, we split up the holiday into 2 smaller groups of younger and older young people.
Group A: morning of Sat Aug 14th to afternoon of Tue Aug 17th.
Group B: morning of Wed Aug 18th to afternoon of Sat Aug 21st.
We were back at 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 2022 holiday will feature an equially super exciting programme!
The cost works out at around £250 per young person, but we charge ONLY £60 – thanks to the wonderful gifts and grants we receive from individuals, churches and charitable trusts.
Because THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE has been so successful, we’ve now added two other residential youth events to our annual programme.
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 17th to Sunday afternoon December 19th. 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 camping and staying 3 nights at PLUMPTON RACECOURSE. That will be our base so we can enjoy all the activities and facilities at MAYCAMP, a great Christian youth festival.
Dates for 2022 are Friday evening May 27th to Monday lunchtime May 30th. Again, just £30.00 per person!
