The first camp being the “The British English Camp” running Monday 22nd – Friday 26th July. This camp will be for 8 – 14 year olds and run in the form of a day camp. Its focus will be teaching the English language in the morning, but of course with the fun/adventure side of camp thrown in, especially in the afternoon.

The second camp will be our ‘Adventure Camp’ running Monday 29th July – Saturday 3rd August.  This camp will be residential and for 9 – 14 year olds most from church/kids club backgrounds both ‘saved and yet to be saved’ children. Its focus will be outreach and discipleship with all the usual excitement and adventure activities.

What to expect

Our aim is to match your gifts and experience with the needs of the camp, so that we all get the most out of this time. Tasks will range from helping in the kitchen to leading the various activities, from swimming and sports to arts and crafts etc., there will be a broad range of possibilities for you to be involved with. For the ‘British English Camp’ there is need for qualified teachers and teaching assistants.  You will become tanned and tired! But we know you will be greatly rewarded through seeing the results and the joy you will bring to the children.
