BOOKing YOUR PLACE
Rainbows, June Weekend and Family Camp
There is one application form that can be used for any of these three events.
We can accommodate approx. 60 people at Rainbows and June Weekend; 90 people at the Summer Camp. There is a need to balance continuity in the running of these 3 events with reaching out to new people who wish to attend. To achieve this a number of places are allocated to those with previous experience of family events and for the coordinators. Other places are reserved for new families, and are allocated by a 'picking out of the hat' system. No-one is excluded if they are unable to make a financial donation.
Please note the deadline of 28th February for receipt of application forms.
Young Persons Retreat
There are a maximum of 25 places on the Young Persons' retreat. These are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Young people who are between 13 and 19 years old at the time of the retreat can apply.
Creative Retreat Bookings
The Creative Weekend 2018 theme is 'Perception'. There are a maximum of 20 places available. This retreat is for those 18 years and over.
