Somerset Christian Camps exists to provide fun and friendship to children between the ages of 7 and 12 for two weeks of August each year. It also provides children with the opportunity to explore Christianity further, both through evening meetings full of singing, stories, fun and quizzes (Big Church) and quiet times for questions each morning.
The children are placed in tent groups of about 8 or 9 children, led by two adults whose aim on Camp is for the kids in their care to have a fantastic week! At night, the children and their leaders sleep under canvas in large army tents. The spirit of Camp is kept lively by the running of a healthy competition during the week, where points can be earned for nearly everything, from working hard at craft, to being the first tent asleep in the evening - it all works together to ensure everyone is involved and having a good time.
From Monday morning when the children arrive, to Friday evening when they gather their things to head home, the children will take part in a huge variety of sports and craft, trips and games, making life-long friends along the way. We hope you'll find the website useful for finding out more about Somerset Christian Camps.
WHAT HAPPENS AT CAMP:
We have a packed programme of craft, with brand new activities every year. From team banner making to individual projects, the craft tent is always a favourite place on Camp.
There is no shortage of sporting activities on Camp. You can play as part of a team in the football tournament, or compete in individual events such as table tennis.
From fun on the inflatables or the trampolines to the famous 'crystal maze', our onsite days are always filled with fun games and organised activities.
Every week of Camp, always involves two trips, where we pack onto coaches and head out for the day. Firm favourites are Crealy, Noah's Ark Zoo Farm, Brean Splash and Flip-Out.
Each day ends with a fun filled extravaganza, filled with singing, video clips, bible stories, quizzes, silly games, prizes, gorillas, and a whole load more.
