What do the children and young adults do?

The children and young adults have their own parallel programmes. Sessions are planned and run by our team of helpers, who are trained to tailor activities to the ages and gifts of the children and young people on the week. In the past, sessions have included activities such as arts and crafts, team games, music, creative projects, treasure hunts, acting and performing, writing songs and making films.

The young people are also encouraged to take part in daily Mass through music, reading or drama, as well as leading morning or evening prayer individually or part of their group. They are usually split into 3 age groups depending on the ages of those who are booked in and the Chief Helpers organise different sessions for each age group based around the theme of the week.

All the helpers, often ‘home grown’, receive annual training, hold enhanced DBS certificates, speak teenager, and are never afraid to do the funny voices during story time.

Unlike other family holidays that will charge you an extra fee for children’s activities, all onsite sessions and activities are covered by the price in the brochure.
