Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Due to these exceptional circumstances, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all summer residential Venture and Falcon programmes.

We are however excited to offer you the opportunity to be involved in Virtual Ventures this summer.

About The Leaders:

Our leaders are a family- we meet up throughout the year to plan Knock and, in between times, we keep in touch from a distance. We all work with children- as teachers, doctors, Youth Leaders- but we also have lots of experience in running a Venture. In fact, some of us were children ourselves when we first got involved all those years ago….. now that's a great advert, don't you think?!

Accommodation Type:

Our home for the week is cosy indoor bedrooms, each of which sleep 3 to 6 people. Every bedroom overlooks the beautiful Lake District hills, has its own washbasin, and there are showers on each corridor. To help feel at home, you will bring your own bedding so choose a favourite duvet or a snuggly sleeping bag, a sheet and a pillow for a great night's sleep in our quiet corner of Cumbria.

Activities and Programme:

There isn't enough time to tell you everything we do but, since Knock began in 2016, we have been on a steam train, swam in the rain, sailed on a Mere, faced The Death Slide, eaten campfire smores, walked with dinosaurs, waded through gorges and, every year, we gunge our favourite leader!! Amidst all of this craziness, we spend time learning about who Jesus is and why he is so important to us.

About Site and Area:

Knock is 5 miles away from the picturesque town of Appleby. Surrounded by farms and fields, The Knock Christian Centre has everything we need: if our own sports field is too wet, we can use the large indoor sports hall; Log World is available for those who like adventures, or there's a craft room for quieter activities. There are beautiful walks on our doorstep and sheep as far as the eye can see!!
