Church Camp


4pm, Friday 28th June until 4pm, Sunday 30th June 2019.

At Headlands Adventure Centre, near Ringwood.  This 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 toilet and shower facilities, a kitchen block for communal cooking, 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.

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).  Groups and individuals are very welcome to come out to the site for each day as 'day visitors' if camping is not your thing.

What Happens?
The weekend is an opportunity to have fun, share meals together, join in optional times of quiet reflection and a short all-age service on Sunday, play games, fish, chat over coffee, try kayaking & archery, toast marshmallows, sing campfire songs, launch rockets and much more.  All meals will be cooked by teams, for the whole camp, so no cooking gear or food is needed by individuals.  Bring your own tent or contact the church office if you need to borrow one.

Barn Dance!  After the sucess of the barn dance last year, we are having a barn dance alongside the lake, with a professional caller, 5pm-8pm on the Saturday evening.  Even if you are not planning to camp overnight, you are welcome to attend the barn dance and BBQ only.   However, you need to book in (for catering purposes) by clicking here.  The only cost is a donation towards the BBQ.  Campers are automatically included in the numbers for the barn dance and do NOT need to book separately.

How Much?
The cost for camping for the weekend (Friday-Sunday) is £24 per person (children 2 and under are free) OR £80 per family of 4 or more (additional friends/extended family members will be charged £24 per person).  These costs include all meals, activities and site charges. Payment must be made when booking.  Please make cheques payable to “Christchurch Baptist Church”.  Day visitors cost £5 per person per day.

If personal finances do not allow you to contribute all or part of this amount, please speak with Jackie McGregor because we are keen that no one should be prevented from attending for reasons of limited finance.

How Do I Book A Place?
