Sometimes the size of your group doesn’t support a residential, other times you may feel that your young people will get the most out of a time away when it’s run by others. This page has a list of organisations that organise Christian youth residentials.
These camps can be great as they’re run by experienced teams with access to lots of activities. It also gives you a chance to hang out with your young people and get to know them more.
