Residentials can be a fantastic opportunity for young people to develop confidence, friendships and their faith, and give them experiences they will always remember.

Here are some ideas for places to go:

Cliff College run an annual 'Cliff Festival' at the College site with something for all ages. It runs over a 4-day weekend each May.



Greenbelt is a festival of 'arts, faith and justice' and takes place from 25-28 August at Broughton House near Kettering.



Min-y-Don is a residential Christian outdoor activity centre in a picturesque part of North Wales. School groups (and families) are welcome to try out a wide range of activities including Bushcraft, Canoeing, Orienteering, Archery and Treasure hunts.


The Oakes is a Christian activity centre in Norton, Sheffield. They run over 40 residential camps a year for children aged 8-18 with a wide range of fun activities and time set aside to explore the Christian faith.


Scripture Union run a wide range of camps and residentials. Their holidays all share the values of 'fun, friendship and faith exploration.' Search on their website to find a camp near you.


Soul Survivor run 4 camps every Summer, each lasting 5 days. These are for teenagers and include worship, seminars, film screenings, fun games and activities.
