14 – 22 August 2021
Bookings are now open for this summer’s popular Hillfield Youth Camp. This year it is being held from 14 – 22 August.
The summer camp is aimed at young people aged 13 -17 (school years 8 up). Young people come from all over the country to attend this event.
The camp is run by an experienced team of volunteers (including Lizzie Whitbread, Senior Adviser for Work with Children and Young People in the Diocese of Salisbury).
Hillfield Youth Camp offers up to 60 young people aged 13 to 17 years the chance of a low cost, fun holiday in stunning surroundings, while exploring a Christian theme. This camp is built on friendship, community and faith and is held at Hilfield Friary so draws on the Franciscan tradition.
The young people are involved in all aspects of the camp from cooking meals to planning and leading worship. All the young people are supported to get fully involved and to use the gifts and skills they bring. As well as getting involved in lots of activities throughout the day and evening, including trips to the beach, adventure activities, challenges and games.
Through all this the leadership has a caring and encouraging style, allowing individuals to express their feelings and positively recognise the validity of their own views and ask questions about faith and life.
For more information and to book your place, please see their website
The camp costs £130 for the full 9 days, if booked before the 1st May and £150 if booked May – July. This includes all activities and food.
If anyone would struggle with the full cost of the camp then please do get in touch through the website as financial help may be possible.
With the slow lifting of restrictions the Youth Camp organisers are very hopeful that the Camp will be able to run this year but appreciate it is an uncertain time to book things for the summer. For this reason Hillfield will not be asking for a deposit this year but will take full payment nearer the time.
