Hilfield Youth Camp

11th - 19th August 2018


Bob, Jess, Rose, Reuben and Jacob have enjoyed Hilfield Youth Camp for many years and wondered if any young people in the Benefice would be interested in this year's camp? It takes place at Hilfield Franciscan Friary in Dorset and is organised through The Society of Saint Francis, an Anglican religious order. Run by volunteers, it offers young people (13-17yrs) the chance of a low cost, fun holiday in stunning surroundings, while exploring a Christian theme. There is a minibus travelling from Wakefield, so it would be possible to link up with the young people there, many of whom are leading this year. There are also opportunities for 18+’s to lead.


The unique aspects of the camp include its varied spirituality and worship (including joining the Franciscan Friars in prayers), it’s small size (30-50) so people get to know each other, and DIY nature - everyone has an opportunity to contribute their talents and discover new ones. The young people themselves explore the theme and teach each other, supported by the adults. It is also a lot of fun, with trips out around the beautiful Dorset countryside, beaches and of course games!
