What is Summer Camp?
Summer Camp 2018 is two weeks of riotous fun spent camping at a beautiful seaside location near Polzeath (where David Cameron spends his summer holidays!). The camp site is on a hillside with a spectacular view of the sea, and is only three minutes from New Polzeath beach.
What will we be doing?
Summer camp is an exciting, fun and action packed two weeks, but with plenty of time for relaxing with friends or reading a good book. Activities from Polzeath-based camps in years gone include beach games, football, go karting, running up Rough Tor, cycling, swimming, and much more!
What is the format?
Camp is run by a team of trained leaders, and lads are divided into tent groups by age, with each tent having two or three leaders responsible for looking after the lads in their tent for the duration of camp. This provides a high leader to lad ratio (around 1:3), and creates a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. There is a strong sense of community on camp, and camp is a place where lads often make strong and lasting friendships with one another. This is reinforced by the lively meal times, where the food is always top class thanks to a brilliant cooking team.
Who is camp for?
If your son has been to Urban Saints, or would like to start by going on Camp, then it is for him! Although Urban Saints is a Christian organisation, Camp is a place that is welcoming to lads of all faiths or none. There are daily slots on camp aimed at exploring aspects of the Christian faith in a way that is engaging for both ‘churched’ Christians and those who have never explored the Christian faith before.
Want to bring a friend along, who is not a regular at USG? What a good idea! Mention their name (and a contact detail) to Dan Price (email@example.com / 07596 116239) and he will make sure they get all the relevant mailing and information.
