About The Leaders:

An amazing team of about 40 leaders who love Jesus make it all happen. Some of us are loud, some thoughtful, others are arty, others are into dance, drama or music. Some are into technical stuff, others really sporty. Whatever you are into, you'll find someone on your wavelength. We love getting together each summer to give you guys the best holiday possible: It's the highlight of our year.

Accommodation Type:

No tents here! Nice, warm rooms with loads of space & plenty of bathrooms! You'll share with about 2-5 other folks, & if you're coming with friends just let us know & we'll try & put you together. Because the site is so huge, we get to use the art rooms, massive gyms, tennis courts, basketball nets, table tennis tables etc & we love to use the heated indoor pool for some late night swims.

Activities and Programme:

7 Heavenly Days: Gorge walking, caving, kayaking, via ferrata, arts, swimming, book club, theme park
Life-changing: Worship, Bible, prayers, truth, relevance: groups that switch from entertainment to worshipping communities.
Community: New friends, leaders who love Jesus & love life.
Summary? We wouldn't be anywhere else. As one guy said: 'Best week of the year; met amazing people & rediscovered faith'.

About Site and Area:

It's immense. Beautiful. Special. Loads of space & great facilities; there's just so much to do! Ripon is easy to get to & if you're not within easy travel distance we can easily pick you up from York Train Station; we normally meet about 40 there each year. We also welcome lots of people from abroad too, & some of our leaders speak German, Spanish & French. So don't let distance put you off, come!
