Summer is a-coming!
Have you thought about how the young people in your church and parish could spend their summer?
For some young people and some groups a festival, like heading to Soul Survivor, is a great way to spend a week. For others, that’s not quite the right shape for them. So if you fall into that latter category, have you thought about a Ventures Camp?
We have a whole hoard of exciting Ventures Camps within reaching distance of the Diocese – find out about all of them here: https://www.ventures.org.uk/
Here’s three who we’ve spoken to/visited/caught up with, who are keen to welcome young people from your parish this summer.

When: 13 August 2017 – 21 August 2017
Bonus – for youth groups who are new to Ventures (or who haven’t been on a Ventures camp in 2 years) there’s £75pp off the cost this year
“Many of our members talk about how great it is meet people their own age who are either Christians or exploring faith – it becomes a real network of support all over the country, and it helps them to know that they are not alone!
