Explore is a new week of camp started in 2018. It is very popular, so we will be running it again this year. it is for the age range 7-11yrs and we have slightly changed the structure. It will be over a shorter period of time, Monday 27th July 10.00am – Friday 31st July 6.00pm. The campers will be in the bedrooms of the main house instead of in tents. We do a wide variety of activities like archery, team building games, sports, crafts, BBQ, film night, disco, inflatable assault course but the pool is one of the firm favourites. To help the young people feel at home for their time away, we are requesting that a children’s worker or volunteer accompany the younger children aged 7-9 yrs sent from a church. However, we realise that isn’t always possible, so we will provide ‘House Parents’ for those not able to bring a chidren’s worker / volunteer. Helpers would join the team but also benefit from their own teaching and support. There will be a small charge to cover food and accommodation.
My name is Becky and I am so excited to be a leader of the ‘Explore’ week of camp. Camp is one of my favourite places in the whole world and has played a really significant part in my spiritual journey over many years. I have been a camper on camp, and then a leader on the team in various different roles. Last year was a particularly special year for me as my husband and I (who I met on camp!) brought our 3 children to camp with us for the first time and had the privilege of sharing the experience with them. I am currently working with young people at a young offenders unit in Bristol, and have done various other children / youth work roles over the past 15 years. I am so passionate about young people getting to know God and having a personal encounter with Him, it is just a real privilege to be part of Hill House where that is the focus!
