INTRODUCING THE YORKSHIRE CHRISTIAN CAMP
The Camp work began over fifty years ago, when two Sunday School teachers decided to take their classes camping for a weekend. Over the years it has developed so that we now have approximately four hundred people attending every year. In August 2001 we purchased our own site and Camp ’18 will be our seventeenth camp to be held on the new site.
We accommodate children and young people between the ages of 10 & 25 in Camp tents. Each tent sleeps up to 10 campers plus 2 tent leaders. Workers over 25 are required to provide their own accommodation. It is not be possible to book/arrange accommodation on the day of arrival.
WHO CAN COME?
We welcome children, young people and adults from Churches, Sunday Schools and associated Youth Groups.
For those paying the appropriate fee all meals are provided. They are of a high standard and prepared and served by an experienced team of workers. It will not be possible to book/arrange meals on the day of arrival.
WHAT IS THERE TO DO?
There is a full program of sports activities (e.g. football, netball, rounders & volleyball). For those not so interested in sports, there are numerous craft activities, many of which make useful gifts to take home.
All campers are put into teams and there are many inter-team competitions. In the evening there are two coffee bars which offer a wide variety of programs and entertainment.
There is also a Camp Shop, a Camp Bank and a Coffee Shop.
All campers are required to attend ALL the meetings which are held twice a day. They have a lively and varied program which aims to tell children, young people and adults about the Lord Jesus Christ.
Visitors are always welcome but they are required to register their arrival and departure with a member of the security team who will be on duty at the entrance to the camp site. Visitors will be given an information sheet on arrival and asked to comply with all camp rules. We regret that we cannot supply any food for visitors and would ask that all visitors leave the camp site by 9.30pm.
SAFETY & SECURITY
All campers will be asked to wear a wristband to assist our security team and ensure your safety. We have a small number of very important rules that must be adhered to. These rules will be published in the brochure that all campers will receive once their booking form has been processed. These rules will also be made clear at the start of camp by the camp discipline team.
We have a security team on duty, night and day, to ensure that no unauthorized people enter the site and that campers do not leave without permission.
All staff who have volunteered to undertake work on camp have to undergo the highest level of checks by the DBS.
