With an all age service each morning and groups for children in the afternoon and evening, we cannot wait to launch
this new mission in August. Local churches and youth leaders are running this event and best of all it is entirely free!
We would love your support in starting this off so please send your children, invite your friends and come along.
Camps: Frequently Asked Questions
Where do I sleep?
Children will sleep in single sex dorm style rooms. Bedding is provided, children just need to bring a towel. A child may request to share a room with a friend which we will do our best to accommodate. This is available on the booking form. Leaders rooms will be clearly marked on each corridor should a child need to find a leader during the night.
Can I bring a phone/handheld games console?
We discourage bringing anything that is valuable and may be broken or lost. Phones are not permitted in dorms so if you need to bring a phone we will check it in a registration and it will be given out a free time so you can text or call home. Parents/Guardians will have an emergency contact number for the main camp leader and children can request to use a leaders phone if they wish to call home.
Do I have to do the activities?
We don’t force anyone to do anything, but we hope that you would like to be able to have a go. All of our instructors are fully qualified.
Do I need money?
No, the cost of camp is all inclusive. We do provide a tuck shop which will be open at a variety of times. We suggest that you bring no more than €10 if so and this also can be checked in at registration and handed out at tuck-shop time.
Can I bring snacks?
Food is not permitted in rooms and we reserve the right to confiscate it. We ask that parents be sensible in what sweets, chocolate and fizzy drinks they give their children. The last thing we want if for a child to be sick and have to go home early. Please note that all food and snacks are included in the cost so it is not necessary to bring anything. Please be aware that there may be people on camp with food allergies (especially nuts).
What should I bring?
Before camp you will receive a travel letter from the main leader stating what you should bring so please refer to that for specifics. This also will have arrival and departure times (as they may vary for each camp). However, some essential items are:
- Change of clothes
- Coat (children will be outside)
- Spare/old shoes
- Bible (if you don’t have one we have spares)
- Consent form & payment (if you haven’t submitted it to the leader already)
