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.

 The deadline for receipt of the booking forms for these three events is the 31st March 2018.

 

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 and booking form will be available in summer 2018. There are a maximum of 20 places available. This retreat is for those 18 years and over.
