Headlands Adventure Centre, near Ringwood.  Headlands is a private site, which our group will have exclusive use of.  The site has a beautiful lake for fishing, canoeing and other activities.  There are flushing toilet and shower facilities, a campfire site, archery and many secluded spots to sit and gaze at the lake. The site has a securely fenced perimeter and gates at the entrance which are locked each night.  For directions, click here for a Google map which has a pin dropped in the exact location.  If you prefer What3Words, click here.

Who Can Come?
Everyone of any age, any camping experience and any size group or individual is welcome to join the camp.  Children must be accompanied and supervised by parents OR by a nominated and specified adult (who should not be one of the camp leaders).  If your child is being supervised by another adult, you MUST complete a consent and medical form (which includes details of who the supervising adult will be).

What Happens?
The weekend is an opportunity to have fun, join in optional times of quiet reflection and a short all-age service on Sunday, play games, fish, chat over coffee, try kayaking and archery, toast marshmallows, sing campfire songs, launch rockets, raft-building competition and much more.  To see photographs of our previous camps, click here.  All food is centrally catered, so you do not need to bring any food or cooking equipment.  We will also supply all crockery (plates, bowls, etc.) and cutlery (knife, fork, spoon) for eating with.

What If You Don't Want To Camp?
If camping is not your thing, groups and individuals are very welcome to come out to the site each day as 'day visitors'.  To book as a day visitor only, click here and select the relevant day visitor options.

The cost for camping for the weekend (Friday-Sunday) is £25 per person (children 2 and under are free) OR £82 per family of 4 or more (additional friends/extended family members will be charged £25 per person).  Payment must be made when booking.

Day visitors cost £8 per person per day, which includes meals (children under 2 and under are free).

If personal finances do not allow you to contribute all or part of this amount, please select the 'concession' option when booking because we are keen that no one should be prevented from attending for reasons of limited finance.  If this option is selected, no fee will be charged at the point of booking and Jackie McGregor will make contact to confidentially discuss your situation. 

How Do I Book A Place?
Complete an online booking form on or before Monday 26 June 2023. 

If young people are attending without their own parent or guardian, a parental consent and medical form must be submitted after booking (you will be emailed a link to the online form).  Each child must have an appropriate nominated supervising adult who must be 18+ and should not be a CBC staff team member or Church Camp leader.  The nominated appropriate adult is responsible for the care, supervision and safety of the child for the duration of the camp.

VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: Parents/carers are responsible for the care, supervision and safety of their child(ren) for the duration of the camp. Anyone using the lake (including adults) MUST wear the life-jackets provided at ALL times.  To view our Church Camp risk assessment, click here.
