The Holiday In A NUTSHELL
GOOD FOOD, GOOD FRIENDS.
THE CHANCE TO HEAR ABOUT A HOLY AND MAGNIFICENT GOD.
waffles covered in syrup for breakfast, a murder mystery, nerf guns, a unicorn chase in the swimming pool and 'CAPTURE the leader' in TOwn, T-SHIRT DYING, CAKE and FROLF!!
MORNING PRAYER OVER CUPS OF TEA WITH YOUR DORM AND 'NOGGLES' WHERE WE TALK ABOUT ANYTHING FROM READING THE BIBLE TO INSTAGRAM CAPTIONS.
The days at NYHP are a mixture of activities, sports, creating and chatting.
All meals are provided by the Westbrook catering team and they do an excellent job of keeping us well fuelled and meeting any dietary requirements.
We run a range of activities with something to suit everyone and, because we know some people have upcoming exams, we also have a dedicated revision slot or two!
We also understand that young people like to have space to pause (and sometimes nap!) every now and then so we make sure that we allow time for that too.
We are an inclusive holiday and we don't want anyone left out so everything we do takes into account the various needs and personalities of our young people.
Wide games covered in glowsticks, bonfires on the beach, team survival challenges and laser quest.
An evening meeting, where God is discussed simply, young people get involved in the worship team and dorms might find themselves praying together.
There's no camping on this holiday! Every young person is assigned a same-sex dorm and a dorm leader. Dorms are generally 3-5 people of a similar age, you might not know everyone in your dorm at first but by the end of the second day that won't be the case anymore.
Dorm leaders act like mentors to the young people and are there to deal with any issues, concerns and chaos that may arise.
