Join us for a life-changing experience on the stunning Norfolk Broads. Be part of a crew in a flotilla of yachts. Relax as you journey up windy rivers and connect with new friends. Learn how to sail in a team – sometimes in exciting conditions! Discover how important you are to Jesus.
The Location :
The Venture happens on the northern part of the Norfolk Broads in East Anglia. The Broads are large lakes interconnected by rivers which are wide enough to sail on. There are miles of whispering reeds and lots of stunning wildlife. We sail through a number of towns as well as to an important nature reserve in a fleet of 4 to 8 berth yachts. We sail, eat, live and sleep on the yachts! The yachts are split into four squadrons. In each squadron there are two boys' boats and two girls' boats. During the day you mix up within your squadron so you get to meet different people and experience the different yachts.
The Activities and The Programme:
Join us on an adventure as we voyage around the Norfolk Broads in a flotilla of yachts. You'll join a crew and learn to sail the different yachts. There's also time to chat and make new friends. We meet together in the evening to sing songs (shanties), tell stories (logs) and worship God. We listen to a talks about Jesus and then go into small groups to pray and discuss the week's spiritual theme.
A great bunch of people from across the country ranging from university students and sixth formers to people who've retired! They're fun to be around, kind and great listeners. Most of all, they're there to serve you. Many came on the Venture when they were your age and want you to experience all the fun they had, discover how important you are to Jesus and the meaning he gives to your life.
