Bookings Open on Monday for 2017 Free Church Youth Camps

January 6, 2017

Bookings for Free Church Youth Camps 2017 open next Monday (09th January) at 1pm.

This year there will be 13 camps to choose from, offering a Christian activity holiday to those aged between 10 and 23.

Free Church Youth Camps (FCYC) administrator Laura MacAulay said: “With registration for Free Church Youth Camps 2017 now open, at the time of writing, we have received over 180 registration forms from excited young people. This summer there are 400 places available for 10-23 year olds across 13 camps with allocation of spaces due to begin on Monday 09th from 1pm.”

“To be in with the best chance of securing a place at the camp of your choice we would encourage all the young people and families you know to visit our newly updated website for all the necessary information and forms.”

Free Church Camps first took place in 1960, and have continued each year since, offering a holiday for young people in a Christian environment. In addition to a range of activities at each camp, there is also a programme of Christian teaching, worship and prayer each day.

“We teach about the importance of following Jesus Christ at each camp,” said Laura, “and Christian leaders will welcome participants questions during ‘dorm discussions’.”

This year the programme runs from 6th July to 12th August, and during that time camps will be taking place throughout Scotland, and at the Quinta Centre in North West Wales.

The 2017 programme will also see the introduction of three brand new camps, Skye Shinty, Skye Survival, and B.A.S.E. camp for young people aged 18 - 23 yrs.
