The day starts with a short devotional thought at breakfast, to set us up for the day spiritually as well as physically.
Each day there are various housekeeping duties to be done; washing up, camp tidy and tent inspection. Points are awarded for how well these are carried out and these points accumulate together with points for other activities to gain a prize for the winning team!
Campers are responsible for keeping their tents tidy and clean during the week. Each morning, after they have tidied and prepared their tents for airing, the camp leader conducts an inspection and awards points to each tent. At the end of the week there is an award for the best kept tent!
Each morning, there is a time to listen and learn from the Bible. This time is usually led by one person, who may also provide opportunity for interaction, activities and discussion in small groups about what has been taught.
Sports / Games / Craft
We offer a wide range of activities throughout the week to cater for all tastes. These may include: football, volleyball, basketball, crafts such as kite making and junk modelling, mini Olympics or ‘It’s a Knockout’ silly sports’ competitions, drama & dance workshops, the list goes on. There is always the opportunity to have a game of table tennis, pool, fussball, board games or riding go-karts. The site also has swings, zip wire and trampolines.
We try to vary our outings and in the past these have included Pleasurewood Hills Theme Park and visits to various outdoor centres, where we have enjoyed activities such as archery, rock climbing, high ropes and team raft building.
These take place each evening with a time of singing led by our worship band, games, quizzes, drama, testimonies, and opportunities to respond to God in a creative way.
Our team of cooks provide us with healthy and generous portions of excellent food. A cooked breakfast sets us up for the day, and lunch we have facilities to make sandwiches and are amply supplied with home made cakes. There is always a supply of fresh fruit and cold drinks available throughout the day. In the evening we have a cooked meal, with supper being served just before bedtime.
