This is an action-packed adventure programme with on the job training. You’ll spend your Christian gap year (the first 12 months of the programme) or 2 years learning and working at the same time, gaining essential experience in youth work and leading groups.

The course is residential so you’ll be living, working and training together with other like-minded Christians, building friendships and making life-long memories.
Your time will be spent learning how to plan, run and instruct activity sessions such as kayaking, archery and high ropes and will help deliver the busy summer programme of activities.

Mission Trip to Africa
As part of your second year, you will experience a mission trip to Lesotho in Africa.
On the mission you will introduce children to activities including: archery, climbing, abseiling and canoeing and spend time teaching them more about God’s love for them.

Is this course for me?
How does kayaking, rock climbing or gorge walking, working with young people and leading adventure activity sessions, sound to you? You won’t need any previous experience, just a love of the outdoors, a relationship with God you want to grow and a heart to see young peoples lives transformed.

What’s the cost?
There is no course fee, but in return you will be working to deliver our activity programme. Your accommodation is included and you will receive a weekly allowance. Essential kit is provided for you on arrival and a mission trip is included in the second year.
